Photo Flash: First Look at Collaboraction's THIS IS NOT A CURE FOR CANCER

‚Äč

Following its success last season with Crime Scene: A Chicago Anthology, Collaboraction is employing the same provocative, docudrama style to attack cancer, its treatment and the way we live with This is Not a Cure for Cancer, a world premiere live theater experience by Collaboraction Artistic Director Anthony Moseley and Sarah Illiatovitch-Goldman. Schedule your appointment with This is Not a Cure for Cancer today. Performances run now through March 30, 2014. Opening is set for tonight, February 27 at 7 p.m. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Bouncing between his dentist's office, the inside of his brain and memories with his deceased father, Moseley draws from his personal experience with his father's battle with cancer as a theatrical lens for a meaning of life dramedy that takes a seriously funny look at cancer, the way we live and the value of life.

"This is Not a Cure for Cancer is not a play," explains Moseley. "It's an interactive, experiential, live art installation that will demystify a terrible disease, leave a theatrical imprint on audiences and change the way they think about cancer and its treatment."

This is Not a Cure for Cancer is co-directed by Anthony Moseley and Theatre Wit Artistic DirectorJeremy Wechsler. The production features Collaboraction company members

Anthony Moseley, Carolyn Hoerdemann, Lisandra Tena, John Ross Wilson, Nate Card andAntonio Brunetti, along with Robbie Bersano, Shawn Casey, Laura Chernicky, Matthew Karl Krause, Patty Malaney, Roy Rainey, Jordan Shomer and Grace Wagner.

Designers include John Wilson (set), Michael Reed (lights), Livui Pasare (video), Elsa Hiltner(costumes) and Angela Campos (props). Andrew C. Donnelly is stage manager. This is Not a Cure for Cancer is produced by Sarah Moeller.
