Photo Flash: First look at Lesser America's IN A WORD at Cherry Lane
Lesser America (Half Moon Bay, The Bachelors, Carnival Kids, Trevor) presents the New York Premiere of IN A WORD by Lauren Yee, winner of the 2016 Francesca Primus Prize and a finalist for the ATCA/Steinberg Award. Directed by Tyne Rafaeli (The Bridges of Madison County national tour, Actually at Geffen Playhouse), performances run through July 8 at Cherry Lane Theatre, where Lesser America continues its run as the inaugural Company in Residence. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
IN A WORD begins on the two-year anniversary of Fiona's son's disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, or the neighborhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
IN A WORD stars Jose Joaquin Perez (Drama Desk Award nominee for My Manana Comes), Justin Mark (TV's "Gotham") and Laura Ramadei (Bekah Brunstetter's The Oregon Trail) with scenic and lighting design by Oona Curley (Underground Railroad Game), costumes by Andrea Hood (As You Like It, Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night at The Public) and sound by Stowe Nelson (The Wolves, Small Mouth Sounds).
IN A WORD runs through July 8, Wednesday - Friday at 8pm and Saturday at 3pm & 8pm. Cherry Lane Theatre is located at 38 Commerce Street (three blocks south of Christopher Street, just west of Seventh Avenue - accessible from 1 train to Christopher Street). Tickets are $25, available at 212-352-3101 or www.www.lesseramerica.com.
