Photo Flash: First Look at Richard Kind, Emily Trask and More in TRAVESTIES at Bay Street Theater

Bay Street Theater presents the Tony award winning comedy TRAVESTIES (June 24 - July 20) by Tom Stoppard and directed by Gregory Boyd. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

With TRAVESTIES, Stoppard creates a smashing theatrical extravaganza with the wit of Oscar Wilde crashing headlong into song-and-dance, strip-tease, pie-fights, and brilliant wordplay. Set in 1917 and 1974 in Zurich, Switzerland, the play fantasizes how a British consul named Henry Carr (Richard Kind) encounters some of the most famous figures of the 20th century, including James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin, through an amateur production of The Importance of Being Earnest. Stoppard takes on the role of the artist in society in this exuberant and freewheeling comedy about art and revolution that is as fresh and thought-provoking as it is uproarious.

The cast includes Michael Benz (Downton Abbey, The Tempest) as Tristan Tzara, Carson Elrod (Person of Interest, Wedding Crashers) as James Joyce, Aloysius Gigl (Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd) as Bennett, Isabel Keating (The Boy from Oz, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark) as Nadya, Richard Kind (Spin City, Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Henry Carr, Julia Motyka (Richard III, We Got Issues) as Gwendolen, Emily Trask (Twelfth Night, The Gaming Table) as Cecily, and Andrew Weems (Born Yesterday, Inherit the Wind) as Lenin.

The production team includes Wendy Seyb (Movement Consultant), Neil Patel (Co-Scenic Designer), Caleb Levengood (Co-Scenic Designer), Judith Dolan (Costume Designer), Whitney Anne Adams (Costume Designer), Rui Rita (Lighting Designer), John Gromada (Sound Designer), Kathy Fabian (Props Master), Pamela Prather (Dialect Coach), Rick Sordelet (Fight Director), Vincent Rodriguez (Magician Consultant), and Rob Chikar (Production Stage Manager).
