Photo Flash: First Look at the World Premiere of Nick Blaemire's SOON at Signature Theatre
Virginia's Signature Theatre has just released the first photos of the world premiere production of Soon, a new musical by Nick Blaemire (Glory Days, A Little More Alive). Check out a first look below!
Directed by Matthew Gardiner (Signature's Sunday in the Park with George, Really Really), the ensemble piece features Alex Brightman (Jonah; Broadway's Matilda, Big Fish, Wicked), Natascia Diaz (Adrienne; Signature's The Threepenny Opera, Broadway's Man of La Mancha), Jessica Hershberg (Charlie; Broadway's Cinderella, Baby It's You), and Joshua Morgan (Steven; Woolly Mammoth's A Bright New Boise, Arena Stage's Fiddler on the Roof).
It is the hottest summer in human history and, in a few short months, all water on earth will evaporate. In response, twenty-something Charlie has taken to her couch with only her beloved possessions: peanut butter, Wolf Blitzer and Herschel, the fish. Her mother, roommate and sometimes-boyfriend all attempt to persuade her to leave her apartment and enjoy life. However, as Charlie's memories take over, more complicated reasons for her self-inflicted hibernation emerge as she confronts her deferred dreams and considers the possibility of life and love just outside her door.
The production began performances at Signature Theatre's ARK Theatre on March 10. It will play for seven weeks, through April 26.
