Photo Flash: First Look at the World Premiere of SALVAGE at First Folio Theatre

First Folio Theatre (Mayslake Peabody Estate, 31st St. & Rt. 83) presents the World Premiere of the new drama SALVAGE by Joseph Zettelmaier, running now through April 27, 2014. The highly anticipated production is directed by Jeff Award nominee and First Folio Theatre favorite Alison C. Vesely. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

SALVAGE tells the tender story of a shy owner of a collectables store in Detroit who finds his staid existence turned topsy-turvy when a mysterious women enters his life with valuable items she is trying to sell. But as their business relationship grows, so does their personal relationship...and so does the mystery of where she keeps finding these items. Zettelmaier is a four-time nominee for the Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association Award for Best New Play. His play It Came from Mars was the recipient of 2009's Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award, and won Best New Script 2010 from the Lansing State Journal. "Zettelmaier's plays are infused with an idiosyncratic sense of humor, but he never shies away from darker emotions," saidAmerican Theatre Magazine.

SALVAGE stars First Folio Theatre Artistic Associate Melanie Keller as "Sarah" (Twelfth Night and Jeeves in Bloom at First Folio Theatre and Romeo and Juliet and Caesar and Cleopatra at The Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada) and Tyler Rich as "Jason" (Cymbeline at First Folio Theatre, Cyrano de Bergerac at Chicago Shakespeare Theater, and The Tempest and The Taming of the Shrew at American Players Theatre).
