Photo Flash: First Look at Montego Glover, Robert Christopher Riley and More in THE ROYALE at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents Marco Ramirez's ("Orange is the New Black," "Sons of Anarchy") wildly theatrical new play The Royale, directed by two-time Obie Award-winning and Drama Desk Award-nominated Rachel Chavkin, Founding Artistic Director of New York's the TEAM, Chavkin most recently won accolades for Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 (The New York Times, Time Out New York, and New York Post Critics's Picks, and Top Ten of 2012 and 2013). The Royale runs now through November 2 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Opening night is tomorrow, October 9 at 8:00 p.m. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Jay "The Sport" Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it's 1905, and in the segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for "the fight of the century," The Sport just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion. Loosely based on real events, The Royale brings to explosive life the sights and sounds of the early 20th century boxing circuit, and the ultimate fight for a place in history.

The acting company includes the award-winning Montego Glover (Nina; originated Felicia Farrell in Memphis at La Jolla Playhouse and on Broadway, The Color Purple), John Lavelle (Max; The Graduate on Broadway, Globe 2013 Shakespeare Festival), Okieriete Onaodowan (Fish; Globe's The Brothers Size, Broadway's Rocky and Cyrano de Bergerac), Robert Christopher Riley (Jay; Broadway's Lombardi and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), and Ray Anthony Thomas (Wynton; David Mamet's Race on Broadway, Fences and Jitney for NPR's August Wilson's Century Cycle).

The creative team includes Nicholas Vaughan (Scenic Design), Denitsa Bliznakova (Costume Design), Austin R. Smith (Lighting Design), Matt Hubbs (Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Annette Yé (Stage Manager).
