Taylor Louderman Departs MCC's RIDE THE CYCLONE Due to 'Creative Differences'

Previews began earlier this month for MCC Theater's New York City premiere of the new musical Ride the Cyclone, which marks just the third musical in MCC's now-iconic 30-year history of producing new works for the American theater. Before opening night, however, the musical will welcome a new cast member.

Taylor Louderman, who plays 'Ocean' recently announced that she will depart the production. She writes: "Due to creative differences, I've left MCC's production of Ride the Cyclone. It was not an easy decision, but both the creative team and I felt it was the right one to make. I sincerely wish the show continued success, and I send my cast mates love and support. Here's to the next adventure - I believe it's going to be a great one. With love and respect, Taylor."

BroadwayWorld has confirmed that Tiffany Tatreau, who originated the role in Chicago, will take over as 'Ocean'.

With book, music and lyrics by Jacob Richmond and Brooke Maxwell, Ride the Cyclone had its celebrated U.S. premiere in 2015 at Chicago Shakespeare Theater under the direction and choreography of Rachel Rockwell, who returns for the MCC production.

Ride the Cyclone, a centerpiece of MCC's 30th Anniversary Season, opens at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) on November 30. It is currently scheduled through December 18.

The Saint Cassian High School Chamber Choir will board the Cyclone roller coaster at 8:17pm. At 8:19 the front axle will break, sending them to their tragic demise. A mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell the story of a life interrupted - with the promise of a prize like no other. Ride the Cyclone is a wildly original new musical - part comedy, part tragedy, and wholly unexpected.

Louderman recently starred opposite Christopher Walken and Allison Williams on NBC's Peter Pan Live as Wendy Darling. She originated the role of Campbell Davis (Fred Astaire Award nomination) in the Tony®- nominated Broadway production and national tour of Bring It On: The Musical. TV Credits: Sunny Days (Nick Jr.), High Maintenance (HBO), Night Cap (PopTv). Off-Broadway: GIGANTIC (Ashley Penrod). Regional: The Muny's AIDA (Amneris), GREASE (Sandy), HAIRSPRAY (Amber); Grease (Sandy) at Paper Mill Playhouse; Footloose (Ariel) at Kansas City Starlight.
