Photo Flash: First Look at Kokandy Productions' LITTLE FISH at Theater Wit
Kokandy Productions presents the Chicago premiere of Michael John LaChiusa's LITTLE FISH, directed by Producing Artistic Director Allison Hendrix with music direction by Kory Danielson and choreography by Kasey Alfonso, playing now through August 20, 2017 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is this Saturday, July 15, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
LITTLE FISH features Curtis Bannister as John Paul, Kyrie Courter as Anne Frank, Adam Fane as Marco, Casey Hayes as Robert (August 1 - 20, 2017), Carl Herzog as Mr Bunder, Teressa LaGamba as Cinder, Nicole Laurenzi as Charlotte, Jeff Meyer as Robert (July 9 - 30, 2017) and Aja Wiltshire as Kathy.
Thirty-something writer Charlotte decides to give up smoking and tries to compensate with swimming and jogging - but to no avail. With the help of her friends Kathy and Marco, she embarks on a modern-day odyssey to face the eclectic demons of her past. Loosely based on Deborah Eisenberg's short stories Days and Flotsam, LITTLE FISH's score is infused with Latin, jazz, rock, and what's been described as "pure urban noise within Charlotte's mind." LITTLE FISH premiered off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre in 2003.
The production team for LITTLE FISH includes: Arnel Sancianco (scenic design), Kate Kamphausen (costume design), Alexander Ridgers (lighting design), Michael J. Patrick (sound design), Mealah Heidenreich (props design), Shawn Rodriguez (master electrician), Keegan Bradac (sound engineer), Lindsay Brown (production manager), Alan Weusthoff and Zach Schley (techinical directors), Emily Boyd (paint charge), Ethan Deppe (keyboard programmer), Kait Samuels (stage manager) and Alison McLeod (asst. stage manager).
