Andrea Dantas New York Theater Company Casts Carlotta Brentan in Upcoming VATICAN FALLS

Carlotta Brentan, who has been attached to "Vatican Falls" since 2012, has been officially cast in the World Premiere presentation. The show will be the inaugural production for the newly founded Andrea Dantas New York Theater Company.

The play, written by Frank J. Avella, is a fictional work based on factual accounts and events and is set against the backdrop of the Catholic sex abuse scandal. Ms. Dantas will direct the controversial piece. The play's turbulent history includes the cancellation of the 2011 world premiere the night before it was scheduled to open in Rome, Italy.

Carlotta Brentan first played Claudia, the female lead, in a staged reading in 2012, directed by Laura Caparrotti. This past June, she reprised the role in a presentation at Planet Connections Theatre Festivity and was nominated for Outstanding Actress.

Dantas recently established her own Theater Company and Conservatory, breaking free from a former partner in light of reports of alleged harassment. In this watershed moment for the industry, Ms Dantas wishes to emphasize that both the Conservatory and Theater Company's number one priority is that every student and ensemble member feel safe and free to work and create in an environment that does not tolerate any type of inappropriate behavior.

Open Calls for the Conservatory will be held on January 29, 2018 at TheaterLab, 357 W36th St., NYC.
