Photo Flash: First Look at Tracy Michailidis and More in ETHEL SINGS at Theatre Row
Undercover Productions LLC will present the Off-Broadway Premiere of Ethel Sings, by Joan Beber at Theatre Row's Beckett Theatre (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues), with Opening Night set for tomorrow, Friday, June 6th. This limited engagement will continue through July 13th. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
10 per of all ticket sales will go to The Rosenberg Fund for Children, the foundation started by Robert Meeropol and named for his parents, that makes grants aiding American children whose parents have been targeted because of their progressive activism, as well as youth who themselves have been targeted due to their politics. Mr. Meerepol has been a supporter of this production since its first reading.
Will Pomerantz (The Blue Flower) directs a cast that includes Tracy Michailidis (Beauty & The Beast - Broadway & National Tour) as Ethel, Ari Butler (Old Jews Telling Jokes) as her husband Julius, Kevin Isola (Almost, Maine - Transport Group, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark - Second Stage) as Roy Cohn, along with David Fierro ("The Knick" - Steven Soderberg), Tanesha Gary (Sheila's Day - Lincoln Center, Caroline or Change - Broadway & National Tour), Sheria Irving (Broadway: Romeo & Juliet - directed by David Leveaux), Kenneth Lee (The Machine - Donmar Warehouse, Allegiance - pre-Broadway), Joel Leffert (Broadway: Waiting for Godot/No Man's Land, Not About Nightingales), and Serge Thony ("One Life to Live," "All My Children").
And featuring Adrienne Moore ("Orange Is the New Black," "Blue Bloods") as Loraine, Ethel's guide and confidante, leading Ethel through her life as she prepares for her death.
Take a wild theatrical ride to discover Ethel Rosenberg as you've never known her. A whimsical new play full of unexpected twists and turns, Ethel Sings looks fearlessly at the determined mother, singer, writer, and actress swept up in the fatal Red Scare hysteria of the 1950s. Her husband Julius' need to "save the world" will be his undoing. Ethel's love for him will be hers.
Performances will be Tuesday evenings at 7pm, Wednesdays at 2pm & 7pm, Thursdays at 7PM, Fridays at 8PM, Saturdays at 2PM and 8PM, and Sunday matinees at 3PM. PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Wednesday matinees on June 11th or 18th. For more information, visit www.EthelSings.com.
