Photo Coverage: Meet The Cast: The Dream of the Burning Boy
Rehearsals are underway for Roundabout Underground's The Dream of the Burning Boy, a new play by David West Read directed by Evan Cabnet. The Dream of the Burning Boy will feature Reed Birney (Larry), Josh Caras (Dane), Matt Dellapina (Steve), Jake O'Connor (Kyle), Jessica Rothenberg (Chelsea), Kristie Dale Sanders (Andrea), Alexandra Socha (Rachel).
This play marks the first time a two-production season has been produced at Roundabout Underground since the program premiered in 2007. The Dream of the Burning Boy follows the critically acclaimed & sold out hit Tigers Be Still from fall 2010.
The Dream of the Burning Boy will begin preview performances on Friday, February 25th, 2011 and officially open on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011. This will be a limited engagement through Sunday, May 8th, 2011. All tickets for Roundabout Underground productions are $20.
The Dream of the Burning Boy creative team includes Lee Savage (Sets), Jessica Wegener Shay (Costumes), Ben Stanton (Lighting) & Jill BC DuBoff (Sound).
In The Dream of the Burning Boy the sudden death of a high school overachiever exposes a secret that could destroy those left behind, or bring them closer together. A bittersweet story of choices made, opportunities lost, and finding the strength to move on.
