Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Roderick Hill, Erik Heger and More for Off-Broadway's STALKING THE BOGEYMAN

Rehearsals are now underway for the Off-Broadway premiere of the new drama Stalking the Bogeyman. Preview performances are set to begin on Friday, September 12 at New World Stages (340 W. 50th St.), with an official Opening Night on Monday, September 29 (7 p.m.). BroadwayWorld has a look at the company in rehearsal below!

Based on the true story of David Holthouse as first told in the Denver Westword newspaper, Stalking the Bogeyman was featured on the popular weekly public radio broadcast "This American Life" in 2011, which prompted an array of media coverage from national and international outlets including ABC News, "20/20," the New York Daily News, the London Daily Mail and more.

The Off-Broadway premiere cast is led by Roderick Hill (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, Tony Award nominee Roxanne Hart (Passion, HBO's "Hung") as Carol/Dr. Leavitt, Tony Award nominee John Herrera (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, "Person of Interest") as Russ and Kate Levy ("Blue Bloods," Halfway Home) as Nancy.

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 a violent 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.

The production features scenic design by David Goldstein, costume design by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Cory Pattak and sound design and original composition by Erik T. Lawson.
