Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Trevor Nunn, Christian Camargo and More for Theatre for a New Audience's PERICLES

Rehearsals recently began for Theatre for a New Audience's production of William Shakespeare's PERICLES directed by Trevor Nunn, featuring OBIE Award-winner Christian Camargo in the title role and leading a diverse company of 22 actors. PERICLES begins previews February 14 for an opening February 25. It is scheduled to run through March 27. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

PERICLES marks Mr. Camargo's third Shakespeare title role for Theatre for a New Audience, and the first time not only that Trevor Nunn has directed this play, but the first time he has directed a Shakespeare with a U.S. company.

The complete cast is Oberon K.A. Adjepong (Thaliard/Pandar), Earl Baker Jr. (Antiochus/Cerimon), Christian Camargo (PERICLES), Philip Casnoff (Helicanus), Gia Crovatin (Thaisa), Lilly Englert (Marina), Nina Hellman(Dionyza),Zachary Infante (Leonine/2nd Fisherman), Patrice Johnson Chevannes (Bawd/Lychorida), John Keating (Boult/1st Fisherman), Ian Lassiter (Lysimachus), Sam Morales (Daughter/Handmaid), John Rothman (Simonides), Will Swenson (Cleon), Raphael Nash Thompson (Gower), and PigPen Theatre Co.(Players and Musicians), with Alex Falberg, Ben Ferguson, Curtis Gillen, Ryan Melia, Matt Nuernberger, Arya Shahi, and Dan Weschler.

PERICLES, one of Shakespeare's 'Late Plays,' is part of Theatre for a New Audience's season-long celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death (April 23, 1616). PERICLES relates a surging adventure story - a hero wanders Odysseus-like through the world of the Mediterranean - and climaxes with events that are seemingly miraculous. An original score written by Tony-nominated Irish composer Shaun Davey (with whom Trevor Nunn has worked six times, including his film of Twelfth Night) will help in telling the story and conveying the mystery and magic of the ending. The acclaimed storyteller-musicians of PigPen Theatre Co. will lend their voices and instrumentation to the production, playing Mr. Davey's score and performing various roles throughout.

Scenic design for PERICLES is by Robert Jones, who has designed numerous productions for Broadway and the West End and more than 15 productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as Mr. Nunn's Rock 'n' Roll on Broadway. Costume design is by Constance Hoffman, the acclaimed opera, dance, and theatre designer whose previous work with Theatre for a New Audience includes Titus Andronicus, The Green Bird, Much Ado About Nothing, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Lighting design is by Stephen Strawbridge, whose credits include more than 200 productions on and off-Broadway, including Theatre for a New Audience's Souls of Naples. Sound design is by Daniel Kluger, whose credits include work with Roundabout Theatre Company, Atlantic Theater Company, and Lincoln Center Theater. Brian Brooks, whose choreography has toured nationally and internationally since 2002 and who collaborated on A Midsummer Night's Dream, is the choreographer. Renee Lutz is the production stage manager.
