Photo Flash: Trumpery
Atlantic Theater Company's world premiere production of Peter Parnell's Trumpery, directed by David Esbjornson is in previews for an official opening on Wednesday, December 5 Off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company at the Linda Gross Theater.
"It is 1858. Charles Darwin (Cristofer) struggles to finish 'The Origin of Species,' and give the world his theory of natural selection, while coping with family illness and his own loss of faith. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, an unknown explorer named Wallace (Felciano) is about to come up with the exact same theory. Both vibrantly comic and deeply moving, Trumpery examines what it means to live in a Darwinian universe from the point of view of the man who discovered the idea," describe press notes.
The design team for Trumpery features scenic design by Tony Award winner Santo Loquasto, costume design by fifteen-time Tony Award nominee Jane Greenwood, lighting design by James Ingalls and sound design by Obadiah Eaves.
Trumpery plays Tuesday through Friday at 8PM, Saturday at 2PM & 8PM and Sundays at 3PM.
