TexARTS Announces Cast and Creatives for WAIT UNTIL DARK
The TexARTS Professional Series presents Wait Until Dark, the groundbreaking thriller that follows a blind woman who finds herself the victim of scheming conmen and in the middle of a murder. Jeffrey Hatcher's adaptation of Wait Until Dark, written by Frederick Knott, plays October 19 - October 29, 2017 at the Kam & James Morris Theatre in Lakeway.
Frederick Knott's play inspired the 1967 film and multiple Broadway productions earning Tony and Academy Award nominations for many of the actors involved - including the film's star, Audrey Hepburn. This adaptation by Jeffery Hatcher captures the suspense made famous by the previous work in a new time and setting. The show is as anxiety inducing as an old film noir, while also containing laugh-out-loud moments.
The cast features Sarah Fleming Walker (Susan), Joe Falocco (Roat), Jason Graf (Mike), Brian Coughlin (Carlino) and Abigail O'Branovich (Gloria).
New York-based director Kasey RT Graham returns to direct the show. Graham previously directed TexARTS' Guys and Dolls. He recently completed a two-year stint as the resident director of the national tour of Phantom of the Opera. He served as the associate director of the Broadway revival On The Twentieth Century, starring Kristen Chenoweth as well as the national tour of Dirty Dancing.
The creative team includes Casey Niblett (scenic design), Madalyn Bond (costume design), Stephen Pruitt (light design), Eliot Fisher (sound design), and Mary Cox (stage manager).
