UPDATE: Billy Eugene Jones has replaced Russell G. Jones in Where the Mountain Meets the Sea due to a scheduling conflict. Jones was last seen off Broadway in The Public Theater's Fat Ham and New York Theatre Workshop's On Sugarland, and on Broadway in A Soldier's Play.

The first play in Manhattan Theatre Club's Off-Broadway season, Where the Mountain Meets the Sea, has set its cast, creative team, and performance dates. The show will begin performances October 11 ahead of a November 2 opening night at MTC's Stage I at New York City Center.

The two cast members of the play, about a father and son, are Obie Award winner Russell G. Jones and How I Learned to Drive's Chris Myers. The creative team includes set designer Arnulfo Maldonado, costume designer Dominique Fawn Hill, lighting designer Stacey Derosier, sound designer Ben Truppin-Brown, dramaturg Sarah Lunnie, and movement by Steph Paul.

Jeff Augustin's Where the Mountain Meets the Sea tells the story of a Haitian immigrant who takes a road trip from Miami to California, and how his son makes the same trip in reverse years later. Their shared memory helps them connect with each other in ways they never have.

This lyrical play is directed by Joshua Kahan Brody and features folk songs by The Bengsons.
