Photo Flash: First Look at DEBUTANTE. World Premiere at the Bernie Wohl Center

‚Äč

After a sold out presentation at Ars Nova's ANT Fest last June, DEBUTANTE. returns to New York City for its world premiere production. Written by Ryann Weir, created & directed by Annie Tippe and produced by Robb Nanus (Andrew Lippa's I Am Harvey Milk), the production will be staged at the Bernie Wohl Center (647 Columbus Avenue). Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

DEBUTANTE. follows the preparations and ultimate debut of a group of restless young heiresses living in decadence during a worldwide financial crisis. Through late night bike rides, TAB soda overdoses and Jazzercise sessions inspired by the soap opera "Dynasty", these poor little rich girls come of age as they come out to the world. At its heart, it is an unexpectedly loving portrait of a group of young women anxious to find their worth in a world defined by the almighty dollar.

Since its conception in 2012, DEBUTANTE. has been presented at "Guadalupe", a CUNY sponsored evening of new work by female artists; Fresh Ground Pepper; and was one of the fastest selling shows at Ars Nova's 2013 ANT Fest. Ars Nova is one of the most exciting developmental theatre spaces in New York and has helped launch the careers of director Alex Timbers (Rocky on Broadway, Peter & the Star- catcher), composers Andrew Lippa (Big Fish,The Wild Party) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights) as well as dozens of others.

The production features scenic design by Adam Rigg (The Disappearing Man, Sarah Ruhl's Dear Elizabeth at Yale Rep), costume design by Maria Hooper (Sarah Ruhl's Dear Elizabeth at Yale Rep), lighting design by Joe Cantalupo (The TEAM's RoosElvis), sound design by Jerome Ellis (Under the Radar's Aaron/Marie) and projections by Ivaylo Getov.

DEBUTANTE. performances will take place from Wednesday through Saturday between now and May 10. All performances are at 8pm. Tickets are on sale at http://debutante.brownpapertickets.com. Additional information can be found at www.debutanteplay.com.
