Montego Glover, Kara Young & more to star in All the Natalie Portmans at MCC Theater
The New York premiere of All the Natalie Portmans is scheduled to begin performances on February 6, 2020.
Casting is now complete for the previously announced New York premiere comedy All the Natalie Portmans, written by C.A. Johnson and directed by Kate Whoriskey.
The Off-Broadway cast includes Joshua Boone (as Samuel), Tony Award nominee Montego Glover (as Ovetta), Elise Kibler (as Natalie Portman), Renika Williams (as Chantel), and Kara Young (as Keyonna).
Synopsis: "All The Natalie Portmans is a fantastical new coming-of-age comedy. Keyonna is sixteen years old, extremely close with her older brother Samuel, and dreams of a better tomorrow. When brother and sister find themselves on the brink of eviction, their tenuous life on the edge of poverty is forever changed by a few hundred dollars, a pretty girl, and a famous Hollywood actress. Too smart, "too gay", and too lonely to fit in, Keyonna escapes by writing to her muse (or muses) Natalie Portman in her most iconic roles. When All The Natalie Portmans start talking back to her, Keyonna finally has to finally face her own off-screen drama in this imaginative new play about the beauty of life even if we can't see the stars."
The newly announced creative team features scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, and sound design by Sinan Refik Zafa.
The New York premiere is set to run from February 6 to March 15, 2020 at the Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater within the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, officially opening on February 24.
All the Natalie Portmans Tickets are available now for performances from February 6 to March 15, 2020.
