BWW Video Show Preview: Coram Boy

BroadwayWorld soars to 18th century London in these highlights from Coram Boy!

The American premiere production of Coram Boy opened at Broadway's Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street) on May 2nd after beginning previews on April 16th. Staged and co-designed by Melly Still, and adapted by Helen Edmundson from Jamila Gavin's award-winning novel, the show previously played two sold-out engagements at The National Theatre of Great Britain and was awarded the 2006 Time Out Best Play Award.  It's currently up for six Tony Award nominations - including nods for director Still and for stars Jan Maxwell and Xanthe Elbrick.

Press notes describe Coram Boy as "the tale of two orphans at the Coram Hospital for Deserted Children: Toby, saved from an African slave ship and Aaron, the abandoned son of the heir to a great estate.  A story of fathers and sons, set in the dark heart of 18th-century England, Coram Boy is filled with danger and excitement." 

Coram's Boy's cast includes Jolly Abraham (Bombay Dreams) as "Molly," Uzo Aduba as "Toby," Jacqueline Antaramian (Julius Caesar) as "Mrs. Hendry," Bill Camp (Heartbreak House) as "Otis Gardiner," Dashiell Eaves (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) as "Adult Thomas Ledbury," Elbrick as "Young Alexander Ashbrook/Aaron," Tom Riis Farrell (Dirty Blonde) as "Mr. Claymore," Brad Fleischer (Pig Farm) as "Meshak Gardiner," Karron Graves as "Isobel Ashbrook," Laura Heisler as "Edward Ashbrook," Angela Lin as "Miss Price," David Andrew Macdonald (Two Shakespearean Actors) as "Lord Ashbrook," Quentin Maré (Julius Caesar) as "Dr. Smith/Frederic Handel," Tony Award nominee Maxwell (Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang) as "Mrs. Lynch," Kathleen McNenny (The Constant Wife) as "Mrs. Milcote," Cristin Milioti (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) as "Alice Ashbrook," Charlotte Parry (The Real Thing) as "Young Thomas Ledbury," Christina Rouner as "Lady Ashbrook," Ivy Vahanian as "Melissa/Angel," and Wayne Wilcox (Suddenly Last Summer) as "Adult Alexander Ashbrook."
