Photo Flash: First Look at Corbin Bleu, Colleen Zenk and More in Human Race Theatre Co's FAMILY SHOTS
Dayton's premier professional regional theatre continues its legacy of developing new works and its long-standing relationship with New York writer Michael Slade as it prepares for the first ever production of Slade's latest play, Family Shots, at downtown's The Loft Theatre. The production runs January 22 - February 8, 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast, featuring Corbin Bleu, in action below!
Charming family patriarch Sam Baker lies in a hospital bed, recovering from an apparent heart attack, but his wife, Marsha, won't stop making the crisis all about her -- much to the dismay of their son, Aaron. The young photographer wonders why his parents even stay together while he and his husband, Malcolm, deal with their own issues as newlyweds. Intimate, yet universal, Family Shots is a wildly funny and touching comedy about marriage -- its joys, challenges and responsibilities -- and what's worth fighting for.
The production is directed by The Human Race's producing artistic director, Kevin Moore. Corbin Bleu stars as "Aaron." Colleen Zenk plays "Marsha." Randy Brooks plays "Sam." Joining them onstage are fellow cast members Adam Halpin (Broadway's Glory Days and Dogfight Off-Broadway, the Broadway tour of Rent and The Last Five Years at Long Wharf Theatre) as "Malcolm," Arash Mokhtar (Rhinoceros and Closer in New York City, HBO's Veep and CBS' Elementary and Person of Interest) as "Dr. Patel" and Annie Pesch (The Human Race's Mame and the Midwest premiere of The Kite Runner at Actors Theatre of Louisville/Cleveland Play House) as "Joyce."
