Enron announces more cast
The upcoming Broadway production of Lucy Prebble's critically acclaimed play Enron, directed by Rupert Goold, welcomes actors Noah Weisberg, Rightor Doyle, Ian Kahn, Mary Stewart Sullivan, Madisyn Shipman and January Lavoy to the company.
They join the previously announced Norbert Leo Butz and Stephen Kunken.
Additional casting will be announced shortly.
Inspired by the real-life financial scandal of 2001, Enron, which was commissioned by Headlong Theatre, premiered this past summer at the Minerva Theatre Chichester, and then moved for a six-week run at the Royal Court Theatre where it played through to 8 Nov 2009. The play transferred to the West End's Noel Coward Theatre in Jan 2010.
Inspired by real-life events and using music, dance and video, Enron explores one of the most infamous scandals in financial history, reviewing the tumultuous 1990s and casting a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world currently finds itself.
Directed by Rupert Goold, the production features scenic and costume design by Anthony Ward, lighting by Mark Henderson, music and sound by Adam Cork, video and projection by Jon Driscoll and movement by Scott Ambler.
Headlong Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre and Royal Court Theatre production of Enron will be produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Matthew Byam Shaw, Act Productions, Caro Newling for Neal St. Productions and The Shubert Organization.
