Amy Bodnar, Amanda Jane Cooper, Ryan Vona & More to Star in Irish Rep's THE STREETS OF NEW YORK

Irish Repertory Theatre announced today casting and additional creative team members for The Streets of New York by Dion Boucicault, featuring adaptation, songs & direction by Charlotte Moore. The Streets of New York will begin previews on December 4, 2021 on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage, with an opening night scheduled for December 14 and a limited run through January 30, 2022.

The cast will feature Amy Bodnar (Oklahoma!) as Susan Fairweather, Amanda Jane Cooper (Wicked) as Alida Bloodgood, Richard Henry (Kiss My Aztec!) as Dermot Puffy, David Hess (Sunset Boulevard) as Gideon Bloodgood, Ben Jacoby (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) as Mark Livingston, Justin Keyes (How To Succeed...) as Brendan Badger, Daniel J. Maldonado (Newsies) as Patrick Fairweather/Duke Vlad, Polly McKie (A Child's Christmas in Wales) as Dolly Puffy, Jordan Tyson ("The Chair") as Dixie Puffy, Ryan Vona (Once the Musical) as Paul Fairweather, Price Waldman (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) as Edwards and DeLaney Westfall (Kinky Boots) as Lucy Fairweather.

The Streets of New York is adapted, directed & features original music by Charlotte Moore (Meet Me in St. Louis). Musical Direction is by Mark Hartman (Pageant) with choreography by Barry McNabb (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever). The Streets of New York will feature scenic design by Hugh Landwehr (Beyond the Horizon), costume design by Linda Fisher (The O'Casey Cycle), lighting design by Michael Gottlieb (Autumn Royal), sound design by M. Florian Staab (On Beckett), properties by Deirdre Brennan (The Dead, 1904) and hair & wig design by Robert-Charles Vallance (Jitney). Pamela Brusoski (A Child's Christmas in Wales) serves as Production Stage Manager, with April Kline (Disco Pigs) as Assistant Stage Manager.

From the Director: "In this time of Covid I was sure it would be appropriate to re-write my original Director's Note. But upon re-reading the original so many things are exactly the same, that I have changed my mind. There is still great poverty and hunger, and the heartbreak of lost love never changes. Add to that a world-wide pandemic and a masked society, and Boucicault's 18th century world seems to fit right into our 21st with its darkness and restrictions. But, as always, I love the end of our story. It's filled with hope and the victory of the power of good. One day soon we will surely be headed in that light-filled direction."

Based on Dion Boucicault's play of the same name and with adaptation, songs & direction by Charlotte Moore, The Streets of New York was first staged at Irish Rep in 2002, when it was nominated for two Drama League Awards. The production also ran at the Westport Country Playhouse in 2003.

The performance schedule is as follows: Wednesdays at 3pm & 8pm; Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm & 8pm; Sundays at 2pm. Exceptions: the performance on Thursday December 9 will be at 7:30pm. The performance on Sunday December 12 will be at 2:30pm.
