Photo Coverage: Roundabout Opens SONS OF THE PROPHET

‚Äč

The Roundabout Theatre Company's New York Premiere of Stephen Karam's new play, Sons of the Prophet, opened last night, October 20. Directed by Peter DuBois, the cast features Yusef Bulos (Bill), Jonathan Louis Dent (Vin), Santino Fontana (Joseph), Joanna Gleason (Gloria), Lizbeth MacKay (Mrs. McAndrew), Dee Nelson (Dr. Manor), Chris Perfetti (Charles), Charles Socarides (Timothy).

Sons of the Prophet will play a limited engagement at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre / Laura Pels Theatre through December 23, 2011.

The design team includes Anna Louizos (Sets), Bobby Frederick Tilley, II (Costumes), Japhy Weideman (Lights), M.L. Dogg (Sound).

Karam's play Sons of the Prophet is part of Roundabout's New Play Initiative, a collection of programs, designed to foster and produce new work by emerging and established artists. Sons of the Prophet was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company, following his hugely acclaimed New York debut with Speech & Debate in 2007 at Roundabout Underground. That successful production of Speech & Debate not only launched the Roundabout Underground program, it also went on to play in over 100 theaters in the United States and Canada.

If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy (Fontana) is more alive than most. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph's health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Laura Pels box office. Ticket prices range from $71.00-81.00.

Sons of the Prophet plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
