Red Bull Theater has announced complete casting for its previously announced new production of John Webster's The White Devil, directed by Louisa Proske, which is scheduled to begin previews at the company's new home of the Lucille Lortel Theatre on March 19, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 31 and a limited engagement through to April 14, 2019.

The cast of The White Devil includes (in alphabetical order) Amara James Aja, Jenny Bacon, Lisa Birnbaum, Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli, Edward O'Blenis, Daniel Oreskes, Cherie Corinne Rice, Socorro Santiago, Tommy Schrider, Tony Award nominee Derek Smith, and T. Ryder Smith.

Synopsis: "This new production of John Webster's The White Devil offers an interpretation of a poignantly contemporary dystopia, a deep dive into the dizzying maze of political power. Using live video to mirror Webster's world of seductive images, perversion, surveillance and violence, it traces an explosive love affair and the story of an extraordinary woman in a world of deceit, objectification, and fake news."

The creative team features scenic design by Kate Noll, costume design by Beth Goldenberg, lighting design by JiYoun Chang, sound design by Chad Raines, and video design by Yana Birÿkova.

This will mark the first New York production of The White Devil in over fifty years, as it was last staged in a 1965 Frank Langella-led revival at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre.

Also this season, Red Bull Theater presents Mac Beth, Shakespeare's classic tale adapted and directed by Erica Schmidt, beginning previews on May 7, 2019, ahead of an official opening on May 19 and a limited run through to June 2, 2019.
