Photo Flash: First Look at PTP/NYC's PENTECOST
PTP/NYC (Potomac Theatre Project), in association with Middlebury College, presents its 28th repertory season, its 8th consecutive in New York, running now through August 10, 2014 in a limited 5-week Off-Broadway engagement at The Atlantic Stage 2, located at 330 West 16th Street between 8th & 9th Avenues in New York City. This season's line-up includes the U.S. Premiere of Howard Barker's Gertrude - The Cry, directed by PTP's Co-Artistic Director Richard Romagnoli, and a revival of David Edgar's Pentecost, directed by PTP''s Co-Artistic Director Cheryl Faraone. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast of PENTECOST in action below!
David Edgar's Pentecost is set in an abandoned church in an Eastern European country. A 13th century fresco has just been unearthed. If it proves to predate the works of Giotto, it could explode accepted notions about European art. Without warning, a group of armed refugees barricade themselves inside the church with the art historians, leading to a shocking and visceral conclusion. Pentecost opened last night, July 16 and runs through August 10.
The cast includes Alex Draper (Serious Money, Plevna and Scenes From An Execution with PTP), Tosca Giustini, Jonathan Tindle, Matthew Ball, Lily Balsen (Therese Raquin with PTP), Martina Bonolis, Christo Grabowski (Monster and Spatter Pattern with PTP), Larry Nathanson, Nina Silver (Lovesong of the Electric Bear with PTP), Lilli Stein (Territories and Lovesong of the Electric Bear with PTP), Joseph Varca (Monster with PTP), Tom Beyer, Aubrey Dube (The Castle and Serious Money with PTP), Caitlin Rose Duffy, Erica Furgiuele, Nicholas Hemerling, Rishabh Kashyap (The Europeans and Crave with PTP), Chelsea Melone, Jake Schwartzwald and Mari Vial-Golden (Serious Money with PTP).
