Everyday Rapure: Second Stage Theatre announces full cast
Second Stage Theatre will present Everyday Rapure, written by Dick Scanlan and Sherie Rene Scott, directed by Michael Mayer, opening at Second Stage Theatre on 3 May 2009, following previews from 7 Apr and running through to 23 May 2009.
Everyday Rapure is the story of a young woman's psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). Everyday Rapure also features songs made famous by David Byrne, U2, Roberta Flack, The Dap Kings and Judy Garland.
In addition to the previously announced Sherie Rene Scott, Everyday Rapure will feature Eamon Foley, Lindsey Mendez and Betsy Wolfe.
Everyday Rapure will feature scenic design by Christine Jones, costume design by Tom Broecker, lighting design by Kevin Adams, and sound design by Brian Ronan. Musical Staging will be by Michele Lynch, orchestrations by Tom Kitt, and musical direction by Carmel Dean.
