Photo Flash: First Look at Stephen Stocking, Patrick Page and More in Rajiv Joseph's ARCHDUKE at the Taper
Performances have begun for Center Theatre Group's production of "Archduke." Written by Rajiv Joseph, the world premiere of "Archduke" began previews April 25 and will continue through June 4, 2017, at the Mark Taper Forum. Opening night is set for May 7. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the company onstage below!
The creative team includes scenic design by Tim Mackabee, costume design by Denitsa Bliznakova, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, music and sound by Daniel Kluger, casting by Telsey + Company and the production stage manager is David S. Franklin.
"Archduke" follows the unlikely path to terrorism as three strangers, already struggling to get by, receive a death sentence in the form of a tuberculosis diagnosis. But being young men with nothing to lose in Belgrade, 1914, makes them the perfect recruits for a secret organization looking to strike a blow in the name of Serbian nationalism.
"Archduke" explores the short journey from individual hardship to public harm as personal desperation is cultivated into an act with international significance and a few average men spark World War I.
