BLOOD WEDDING by Federico García Lorca, translated by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata, is directed by Ensemble Member Daniel Ostling at Lookingglass Theatre Company. Currently in previews, the production opens tomorrow, Saturday, March 12 for a run through April 24, 2016 at Lookingglass Theatre Company, located inside Chicago's historic Water Tower Water Works, 821 N. Michigan Ave. at Pearson. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

When a young bride-to-be receives a visit from a former paramour on her wedding day, a family blood feud threatens the celebration and sparks a deadly dance of love and deception, family and revenge, beauty and betrayal. Lorca - one of Spain's most revered and controversial dramatists - dared to pen a seductive tale of passion and vendetta in a rural Spanish community, one that speaks to any heart longing for true connection. Lookingglass celebrates Lorca's revolutionary theatrical vision and this bold and timeless work in an immersive experience lush with music, movement, and poetic storytelling.

The cast of Blood Wedding features Ensemble Members Eva Barr (Neighbor/Maid) and Christine Mary Dunford (Bridegroom's Mother), with Artistic Associates Kareem Bandealy (Leonardo) and Troy West (Bride's Father), and Atra Asdou (Leonardo's Wife), Sophia Michelle Bastounes (Little Girl), Chance Bone (Bridegroom), Wendy Mateo (Mother-in-Law), Melisa Pereyra (Moon/Girl), Helen Sadler (Bride), Kevin Viol (Woodcutter 2/Musician) and Bubba Weiler (Woodcutter 1/Musician).
