Photo Coverage: Ruhl's ORLANDO Opens at CSC
Last night, September 23, Classic Stage Company (CSC), under the leadership of Artistic Director Brian Kulick and Executive Director Jessica R. Jenen, began its 44th season with the New York premiere of ORLANDO, written by Pulitzer & Tony nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, Clean House), adapted from the work of Virginia Woolf, directed by Rebecca Taichman, with choreography by Annie-B Parson. ORLANDO will play a limited engagement at CSC (136 East 13th Street) through Sunday, October 17. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the opening and brings you photo coverage below.
Meet Virginia Woolf's Orlando, your typical Elizabethan Man: a favorite of the Queen, madly in love with a Russian Princess, fleeing an Archduchess and waking up one fine day in Constantinople to find he has become, of all things, a woman. She survives the 19th and 20th Centuries grappling with what it means to live fully in the present, in our own skin, in our own gender, and in our own time.
The creative team for ORLANDO includes set design by Allen Moyer, costumes by Anita Yavich, lighting by Christopher Akerlind, and Original Music & Sound Design By Christian Frederickson & Ryan Rumery.
