Catch 22: Aquila Theatre announces full cast
Aquila Theatre has announced the complete cast for the World Premiere of the stage adaptation of Joseph Hellerï¿½s Catch 22, adapted and directed by Peter Meineck, opening at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on 23 Nov 2008, following previews from 14 Nov and running through to 20 Dec 2008.
Joining the previously announced John Lavelle, starring as 'Yossarian,' will be Mark Alhadeff, David Bishins, Chip Brookes, Christina Pumariega, Craig Wroe and Richard Sheridan Willis.
Catch 22: Yossarian is a bombardier on a B-25, based on a small island off the coast of Italy in 1944. He starts to question the futile and ridiculous administration of his air base and seeks a way to preserve his life when the whole world around him seems to be going mad.
Peter Meineck explains, "As modern day Milo Minderbinder's play havoc with the stock market and contemporary Colonel Cathcart's place the lives of our troops at risk for political gain this is the right time for Catch-22 to be seen on stage. We are all greatly looking forward to seeing Yossarian live again."
