FREEZE FRAME: Meet the Cast of Playwrights Horizons' FLY BY NIGHT
Playwrights Horizons presents the New York premiere of Fly By Night: A New Musical, conceived by Kim Rosenstock (Tigers Be Still), written by Will Connolly (performer, Once), Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents, the upcoming film The Giver) and Ms. Rosenstock, and directed by Carolyn Cantor (The Great God Pan and After the Revolution at PH, Pumpgirl, Orange Flower Water). The cast met the press earlier today and you can check out a photo preview from the festivities below!
The cast of FLY BY NIGHT will feature Allison Case (Hair, Hands on a Hardbody, Mamma Mia!), Adam Chanler-Berat (Peter and the Starcatcher, Next to Normal, Rent), Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Peter Friedman (The Great God Pan, The Shaggs, After the Revolution, Circle Mirror Transformation, The Heidi Chronicles at PH; Ragtime), Michael McCormick (Coming Attractions at PH; Chaplin; Elf; Curtains), Patti Murin (Wicked, Xanadu, Love's Labour's Lost), Drama Desk Award nominee Bryce Ryness (Hair, First Date, Around the World in 80 Days) and Obie Award winner Henry Stram (Black Sea Follies, Jack's Holiday at PH; Inherit the Wind; The Crucible; Antony and Cleopatra).
In this darkly comic rock-fable, a melancholy sandwich maker's (Mr. Chanler-Berat) hum-drum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters (Ms. Case and Ms. Murin). A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the northeast blackout of 1965, FLY BY NIGHT is a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.Photo Credit: Walter McBride
