Casting Announced for March 25 RUNAWAYS Concert

Jamie McGonnigal and Joe's Pub present the cult hit musical, RUNAWAYS: In Concert. Runaways is a 1978 Broadway musical by Elizabeth Swados about the lives of children who run away from home and live on the city streets. The characters were taken from workshops conducted by Swados with real-life runaways in the late 1970's. In this new production, reworked and directed by Rodney Hicks (Rent, Jacques Brel…) and musically arranged and with musical direction by Eric Svejcar (Caligula:The Musical, Jacques Brel…) the stories of these young people have been updated and thus made more poignant by their relevance to the challenges today's youth face. The concert will take place on Sunday, March 25th at 9:30PM at Joe's Pub.

The cast of the Runaways concert will include Ezra Miller, Garrett Zuercher, Eric Anthony, Shonn Wiley, Alex Brightman, Shaun Taylor-Corbett, Max Jenkins, Eric Nelsen, Karla Mosley, Karen DiConcetto, Idara Victor, Alexis Sims, Aryana Rodriguez, and Juliana Rose Mauriello

All seats for RUNAWAYS are $30. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Joey DiPaolo AIDS Foundation and CAMP TLC. Tickets available at The Public Theater box office or through Telecharge: www.telecharge.com or 212.239.6200.
