Cast Announced For Live Source Theatre Group's World Premiere Of SUDDENLYLive Source Theatre Group (Tyler Mercer, Co-Founder & Artistic Director; Chris Dieman, Co-Founder & Artist in Residence), as part of their 7th season, presents the world premiere of SUDDENLY, a new play based on the classic 1954 noir film starring Frank Sinatra, adapted by Gianfranco Settecasi after the screenplay by Richard Sale. Directed by Tyler Mercer, SUDDENLY will play a limited engagement at HERE (145 6th Avenue, NYC - Enter on Dominick, one block south of Spring). Performances begin Friday, October 5th and the engagement runs through Saturday, October 20th, 2018. The Opening is Sunday, October 7th at 4pm.

SUDDENLY is a new play adapted from the 1954 film of the same name, about an attempted presidential assassination that rocks a quiet town in northern California. When the Bensons' home is placed on lockdown after local law enforcement learns of a potential threat to the president's passage through the nearby train station, it soon becomes very clear that nothing is as it appears. Set against a post-war backdrop but staged with contemporary urgency, this intense political thriller explores a particularly American culture of violence.

Utilizing Live Source Theatre Group's signature design-heavy production values, SUDDENLY will blend its stylized 1950s influences in a contemporary production with integrated video/projection design, highlighting the timeliness of this period script as it explores how far we have (and haven't) come in the national dialogues on guns, the treatment of veterans, PTSD, and the dark side of the American dream.

The cast of SUDDENLY includes Drew Allen, Henry Fin Berry, Chris Dieman, Phoebe Dunn, Ariel Estrada, Sean A. Kaufman, Joseph J. Menino and Brendan Walsh.

SUDDENLY has scenic and video design by Bryce Cutler, costume design by Angela Harner, lighting design by Mary Ellen Stebbins, and properties by Brett Warnke. The Production Manager is Emma Ruopp. The Production Stage Manager is Mackenzie Trowbridge.

SUDDENLY will play the following performance schedule beginning Friday, October 5th through Saturday, October 20th: Tuesdays at 8:30pm, Wednesdays at 8:30pm, Thursdays at 8:30pm, Fridays at 8:30pm, Saturdays at 8:30pm, and Sundays at 4:00pm, with an additional matinees Saturday October 6th at 4pm and Saturday, October 20th at 4pm.
