Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of SOLSTICE PARTY! at A.R.T./New York Theatres
Live Source Theatre Group presents the world premiere of SOLSTICE PARTY!, written by Susan Soon He Stanton and directed by Tyler Mercer. SOLSTICE PARTY! runs from November 2 - 19, 2017 in a limited engagement at the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theatre at the A.R.T./New York Theatres, located at 502 West 53rd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues in New York City. Previews begin November 2 for a November 4 opening. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast below!
Originally commissioned and developed by Live Source, SOLSTICE PARTY! is about a group of friends who gather to celebrate the Summer Solstice together in the deep Upstate New York woods behind an old farmhouse. What begins as a casual, fun weekend quickly devolves into something more sinister; a power-struggle and then a game of survival that is by turns bizarre and shocking. Written as a Jonestown parable for the Trump era, playwright Susan Soon He Stanton explores themes of "group-think" and betrayal that instigate our deepest primal fears.
The cast includes Satomi Blair (Kentucky at Ensemble Studio Theatre), Phoebe Dunn (Hulu's "The Looming Tower"), Hallie Hadara, Chris Ignacio, Patrick Andrew Jones, Michael Vitaly Sazonov and Stephanie Weeks (Mourning Becomes Electra with Target Margin).
The production team includes Bryce Cutler (Set Design), Mary Ellen Stebbins (Lighting Design), Adrian Bridges (Sound Design), Angela Harner (Costume Design), Kevan Loney (Projection Design), Mitch McCoy (Fight Choreography) and Jamie Rose Bukowski (Production Stage Manager).
Tickets are $25, and $20 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at www.Live-Source.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
