Primary Stages' world premiere of On That Day in Amsterdam, written by Clarence Coo and directed by Kareem Fahmy, which was scheduled to begin performances at Cherry Lane Theatre yesterday, has delayed its first preview due to a last minute cast change. Andy Lucien has assumed the role of Rembrandt, following previously announced Evander Duck's departure from the production, and the world premiere will now begin performances on November 1, 2019. The official opening remains set for November 19, with the limited engagement running through December 18, 2019.

Mr. Lucien has previously appeared Off-Broadway in The QualmsThe City of Conversation, and The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Grace B. Matthias. His screen credits include "The Blacklist," "Elementary," and Marvel's "Daredevil."

The cast of On That Day in Amsterdam also includes Abubakr Ali (as Sammy), Frankie J. Alvarez (as Vincent), Jeffrey Omura (as Kevin), and Rocky Vega (as Anne).

Synopsis: "In a time when your fate is determined by your passport, Clarence Coo's deeply arresting play captures a transient moment of magic. The morning after a one-night stand, a refugee from the Middle East wakes up next to an American backpacker who is himself the son of immigrants. With only a day until the two young men must each leave Amsterdam, they set off on a romantic journey through the city. Moved by the spirits of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank, On That Day in Amsterdam witnesses these two young dreamers count down their remaining hours together, discovering the meaning of art, love, and loss."

The creative team behind On That Day in Amsterdam features scenic design by Brian Prather, costume design by Dina El-Aziz, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Mark Van Hare, and projection design by Shawn Duan.

On That Day in Amsterdam is produced Off-Broadway by Primarys Stages in association with Ted Snowdon.
