7th Monarch announces early closing notices

Jim Henry's new play 7th Monarch, starring Tony Award winner Michael Rupert (Sweet Charity), has posted early closing notices, and will play its final performance on 12 Aug 2012.

7th Monarch opened at Theatre Row's Acorn Theater on 24 Jun 2012, following previews from 12 Jun 2012, for a limited engagement that was originally scheduled to close on 9 Sep 2012.

In addition to Michael Rupert, the cast of 7th Monarch features Michael Cullen, Gretchen Hall, Leslie Hendrix and Matthew Humphreys, under the direction of Scott C. Embler.

In 7th Monarch, Miriam Hemmerick, a mathematical genius who was on the fast track to becoming an astronaut, has been living in seclusion with her parents for the past 20 years after dropping out of college. Raina, a social worker, investigates a potential crime involving Miriam's mother and father, but the parents themselves are nowhere to be found. The mysteries start there, and dark personal secrets about these two women are soon revealed.

Set design for 7th Monarch is by Shoko Kambara, with costume design by D.W. Withrow, lighting design by D.M. Wood and sound design by David Pinkard.

The play is being produced Off-Broadway by Somerled Charitable Foundation, with general management by Brierpatch Productions.
