Photo Flash: First Look at Ed Dixon, Erin Driscoll, Christopher Bloch and More in Signature Theatre's CLOAK AND DAGGER World Premiere
Virginia's Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre closes out its 2013/2014 season with the world premiere musical Cloak and Dagger, directed by Signature Theatre's Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer (Broadway's Follies, Million Dollar Quartet). From Helen Hayes Award Winner Ed Dixon (Signature's Sunset Boulevard) comes this screwball musical comedy send-up of the 1950s film noir. Check out a first look below!
Third-rate detective Nick Cutter is down on his luck when a beautiful blonde bombshell tosses a very intriguing case (and herself) into his lap. For the next 90 minutes, Nick races through every New York neighborhood in this zany, mile-a-minute whodunit. With four actors playing nearly 20 roles, Cloak and Dagger spoofs erstwhile mysteries with speed and wit.
Ed Dixon (Character Man One) stars alongside fellow Helen Hayes Award winners Christopher Bloch (Character Man Two; Signature's Chess, LES MISERABLES), Erin Driscoll (Helena Troy; Signature's The Threepenny Opera, Urinetown) and Signature Theatre newcomer Doug Carpenter (Nick Cutter; Papermill Playhouse's South Pacific).
The creative team includes Orchestrations by Jordan Ross Weinhold; Musical Direction by Jenny Cartney; Scenic Design by Daniel Conway; Costume Design by Kathleen Geldard; Lighting Design by Colin K. Bills; Sound Design by Lane Elms; and Production Stage Manager Julie Meyer.
Cloak and Dagger begins performances on June 12 and runs for 3.5 weeks through July 6, 2014 in Signature's MAX Theatre. All tickets are now on sale. More information is at signature-theatre.org.
