Cerris Morgan-Moyer, Jo Osmond and Morgan Ritchie Join LATW's All-Welsh UNDER MILK WOOD This Fall; Cast Complete!
Casting is now complete for L.A. Theatre Works' upcoming production of Under Milk Wood (Sept. 18-21). Cerris Morgan-Moyer, Jo Osmond and Morgan Ritchie have been added to the cast, and Welsh composer Ceiri Torjussen has been commissioned to create original music.
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Dylan Thomas's birth, an all-Welsh and Welsh-American cast records Thomas's immortal "play for voices" at UCLA's James Bridges Theater.
Sara Sugarman directs Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Kate Burton (Scandal), Laura Evans (BBC's The Basil Brush Show), John Francis (Invasion Roswell), Jason Hughes (Midsomer Murders), Christopher Monger (director, The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain), Cerris Morgan-Moyer (Days of Our Lives), Jo Osmond (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Morgan Ritchie (son of Kate Burton, grandson of Richard) in Thomas's intensely beautiful, poignant and sublimely funny linguistic tour-de-force about the salty little fishing village of Llareggub (read it backwards) -- an enchanted spot where the wicked are forgiven and their indiscretions transformed into rich fuel for comedy.
Original music is composed by Ceiri Torjussen.
Each performance will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes), and the final version will air on LATW's syndicated radio theater series, broadcasting weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and available for streaming on demand at www.latw.org.
