Photo Flash: First Look at New Adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's GALAPAGOS at Parrish Art Museum

Galapagos is a newly adapted theatrical performance by Tucker Marder & Christian Scheider based on the 1985 Kurt Vonnegut novel. Galapagos is the first fully staged theatrical production presented by the Parrish Art Museum in the 200-seat Lichtenstein Theater, and is endorsed by the Kurt Vonnegut Estate. Scroll down for photos!

The program reflects the Museum's mission, rooted in the artistic life of the East End, and its mission to illuminate the creative process and provide opportunities for artists of all genres to engage with one another and the community. Vonnegut had close ties with the East End, living and working in Sagaponack during the 1960s and 70s. Both Scheider and Marder (as well as much of the cast and production team) are East End natives.

Galapagos, Kurt Vonnegut's eleventh novel, was influenced by current events of the time, including the global financial crisis of the 1980s. The protagonist, Mary Hupburn (played by Dirksen) is a beloved high school teacher from Ilium, New York who plans to embark on the "Nature Cruise of the Century" in Ecuador. With the onset of yet another crisis, a disease that renders all humans infertile, Hepburn sets off aboard the Bahia de Darwin with a group of passengers-all of whom become marooned among the flora and fauna of the Galápagos archipelago. The only fertile humans remaining on the planet, the group initiates the evolution of a new species over the next million years.

The production team is as follows: Original Music: Forrest Gray, Costume Design: Isla Hansen, Scenic Design: Shelby Jackson, Choreography: Matty Davis, Property Master: Evan Desmond Yee, Video Design: James Bayard, Lighting Design: Ryan Anderson, Sound Design: Clark Hamilton, Production Stage Manager: Benjamin Vigil, and Assistant Stage Manager: Maddy Hykes. Galapagos is directed by Tucker Marder and Christian Scheider.

Featured in the cast are: Chloe Dirksen, Nick Gregory, Bob Balaban, Terrance Fiore, Spencer Carlson, Madeline Wise, Margy Love, Yuka Silvera, Catlin Morris,Christian Scheider, Sawyer Avery, Lydia Hodges, Travis Loschen, Jessica Mortellaro, Johannes Golden, Christopher Golden, Oskar Golden, Sylvia Channing, Nina Channing, Vincent Cinque, Leah Lane , Hudson Galardi-Troy, Daniel Allende, Gigi Lama & Lola Lama, Ian Holden, and Sarita Kiembock.
