BWW TV: Allison Case, Adam Chanler-Berat, Patti Murin & More Preview Playwrights Horizons' FLY BY NIGHT

Playwrights Horizons presents the New York premiere of Fly By Night: A New Musical, conceived byKim Rosenstock (Tigers Be Still), written by Will Connolly (performer, Once), Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents, the upcoming film The Giver) and Ms. Rosenstock, and directed by Carolyn Cantor (The Great God Pan and After the Revolution at PH, Pumpgirl, Orange Flower Water). The cast just met the press and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was on hand to chat with the company about the new musical. Check out what they had to say in the video below!

The cast of FLY BY NIGHT will feature Allison Case (Hair, Hands on a Hardbody, Mamma Mia!),Adam Chanler-Berat (Peter and the Starcatcher, Next to Normal, Rent), Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Peter Friedman (The Great God Pan, The Shaggs, After the Revolution, Circle Mirror Transformation, The Heidi Chronicles at PH; Ragtime), Michael McCormick (Coming Attractions at PH; Chaplin; Elf; Curtains), Patti Murin (Wicked, Xanadu, Love's Labour's Lost), Drama Desk Award nominee Bryce Ryness (Hair, First Date, Around the World in 80 Days) and Obie Award winner Henry Stram (Black Sea Follies, Jack's Holiday at PH; Inherit the Wind; The Crucible; Antony and Cleopatra).

In this darkly comic rock-fable, a melancholy sandwich maker's (Mr. Chanler-Berat) hum-drum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters (Ms. Case and Ms. Murin). A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the northeast blackout of 1965, FLY BY NIGHT is a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.
