Photo Flash: First Look at Off-Broadway's STALKING THE BOGEYMAN
Now in previews, the Off-Broadway's newest stage drama Stalking the Bogeyman is set to officially open on Monday, September 29 at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). Check out a first look below!
Based on the true story of reporter David Holthouse, Stalking the Bogeyman was famously featured on the popular weekly public radio broadcast "This American Life" in 2011, which prompted an array of subsequent national and international media coverage.
The Off-Broadway premiere cast is led by Roderick Hill ("The Newsroom," Smart People, Unnatural Acts) as David Holthouse and Erik Heger (End of the Rainbow, Macbeth at The Guthrie) as the Bogeyman, with Murphy Guyer(Glengarry Glen Ross, HBO's Mildred Pierce) as Robert Holthouse, Tony Award nomineeRoxanne Hart (Passion, HBO's "Hung") as Carol Crawford/Dr. Leavitt, Tony Award nominee John Herrera (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, "Person of Interest") as Russ Crawford and Kate Levy("Blue Bloods," Halfway Home) as Nancy Holthouse.
In the spring of 2003, David Holthouse was a successful, award-winning journalist. But no one knew that David had two dark secrets -- first, that 25 years ago he was the victim of rape, and second, that he was quietly planning the ultimate revenge on the man responsible.
A story of transformation, healing and forgiveness of the highest order, Stalking the Bogeyman follows one man's quest for revenge as he comes to grips with the killer inside him.
Adapted and directed by Markus Potter, Stalking the Bogeyman was created from the original true story and subsequent news reports, as well as conversations with Holthouse, lectures he has given around the country and original text by the playwright, with additional writing by Santino Fontana, Shane Zeigler and Shane Stokes.
