Adina Verson, Vanessa Aspillaga Among Cast of Atlantic's EDDIE AND DAVE

Atlantic Theater Company (Neil Pepe, Artistic Director; Jeffory Lawson, Managing Director) is proud to announce casting for the world premiere production of Eddie and Dave, written by and featuring Amy Staats (Miles for Mary, Atlantic's Tow Playwright-in-Residence) and directed by Margot Bordelon (Plot Points in Our Sexual Development).

Eddie and Dave will also feature Vanessa Aspillaga (Amy and the Orphans), Megan Hill (Do You Feel Anger), Omer Abbas Salem (Off-Broadway debut), and Adina Verson (Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Betties, Indecent).

Eddie and Dave begins previews Thursday, January 10th and will open Tuesday, January 22nd for a limited engagement through Sunday, February 10th, 2019 Off-Broadway at Atlantic Stage 2 (330 West 16th Street).

A raucous retelling of the rise and fall of Pasadena's most groundbreaking 80s rockers told through the foggy lens of a lonely, out of work MTV-VJ. Eddie and Dave is a gender-bending new play by Amy Staats about hubris, friendship, family, fame, musical genius and what happens when the person you need is the one you find most irritating.

Eddie and Dave will feature scenic design by Reid Thompson, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, original compositions by Michael Thurber, projections by Shawn Boyle, and casting by Caparelliotis Casting: Lauren Port, CSA.

Eddie and Dave is supported by the Venturous Theater Fund of Tides Foundation. It is also the capstone of Amy Staats' yearlong playwright residency at Atlantic generously supported by The Tow Foundation.
