Casting announced for Atlantic's World Premiere of Found
Atlantic Theater Company has now announced casting for the upcoming World Premiere of new musical Found, directed by Lee Overtree, featuring a book by Tony Award nominee Hunter Bell and Lee Overtree and Music and Lyrics by Eli Bolin. This will be the first production of Atlantic's 2014-2015 season, beginning previews on 18 September 2014, with an official opening set for 14 October 2014 and concluding its run at Off-Broadway's Linda Gross Theater on 9 November 2014.
The ensemble cast of Found features Christina Anthony, Nick Blaemire, Andrew Call, Daniel Everidge, Orville Mendoza, Betsy Morgan, Molly Pope, Danny Pudi, Sandy Rustin and Barrett Wilbert Weed.
The musical is based on the 'Found' books and magazines by Davy Rothbart, with additional material created in collaboration with Story Pirates and Drew Callendar, Duke Doyle and Jono Hustis.
Synopsis: 'Found is an original musical based on scores of surprising and eccentric discarded notes and letters that have been "found" in the real world by every-day people. Inspired by actual events, the show follows Davy who, along with his two best friends, is lost and broke. When he finds a strangely revealing note on his windshield meant for someone else, it sparks an outlandish idea that finds him and his compatriots on a wild, comedic journey. By bringing a host of real notes and letters from Davy Rothbart's popular FOUND Magazine to irreverent theatrical life, this new musical tells a story of ambition, betrayal and loyalty while celebrating the weirdness in all of us.'
The creative team behind Found includes musical direction by Matt Castle, with orchestrations by Frank Galgano and Matt Castle, choreography by Monica Bill Barnes, set design by David Korins, costumes by Theresa Squire, lighting by Justin Townsend, sound design by Ken Travis, and projections by Darrel Maloney.
