MAGIC KINGDOM Set for FringeNYC, Opening Tonight
When Cory gets a frantic and mysterious voicemail from his vacationing sister, he makes the trip to Orlando, Florida, to see what's gone wrong. What he discovers is a sister seemingly gone insane, a young precocious niece he must somehow look after, and a theme park full of irresistible temptations.
Magic Kingdom, a quirky new play by Cory Conley, is directed by Craig Baldwin. The duo previously won the 2011 Fringe Overall Excellence Award for Best Play for the full length dramedy, The More Loving One, which was also accepted into the Fringe Encore Series at the Soho Playhouse. Magic Kingdom will have its World Premiere at the 18th annual New York International Fringe Festival and is being produced by Black Door Theatre Company.
The production stars Rafael Benoit (Tala/HERE), Cameron Michael Burns (This is a Play About Being Gay/Fresh Fruit Festival), Daniel K Isaac (Anna Nicole the Opera/BAM), Gina LeMoine (Virus Attacks Heart/Planet Connections), Josh Marcantel (The Pillowman/T. Schreiber), Mary Monahan (Ecstasy/Black Door Theatre) and Marisa Lark Wallin (Revolution/Manhattan Rep).
