Primary Stages Announces Cast of ON THAT DAY IN AMSTERDAM

On That Day in Amsterdam

Primary Stages announces casting for the world premiere of On That Day in Amsterdam, written by Clarence Coo (Beautiful Province (Belle Province)--Yale Drama Prize) and directed by Kareem Fahmy (3/Fifths). Performances begin at the Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street) on Tuesday October 29, 2019, with opening night set for Tuesday November 19, for a run through Wednesday December 18, 2019.

The cast of On That Day in Amsterdam will include Abubakr Ali (Twelfth Night) as Sammy, Frankie J. Alvarez ("Looking") as Vincent, Evander Duck ("Orange is the New Black") as Rembrandt, Jeffrey Omura (Fruiting Bodies) as Kevin, and Rocky Vega (My Lingerie Play) as Anne.

On That Day in Amsterdam will feature set design by Brian Prather (Daniel's Husband), lighting design by Matt Frey (By the Way, Meet Vera Stark), sound design by Mark Van Hare (Life Sucks), costume design by Dina El-Aziz (Daybreak), and projection design by Shawn Duan (Between Two Knees).

In a time when your fate is determined by your passport, Clarence Coo's deeply arresting play captures a transient moment of magic. The morning after a one-night stand, a refugee from the Middle East wakes up next to an American backpacker who is himself the son of immigrants. With only a day until the two young men must each leave Amsterdam, they set off on a romantic journey through the city. Moved by the spirits of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank, On That Day in Amsterdam witnesses these two young dreamers count down their remaining hours together, discovering the meaning of art, love, and loss.

On That Day in Amsterdam is produced in association with Ted Snowdon.
