Whitney Bashor to Join Matt Bogart in New Musical HIMSELF AND NORA Off-Broadway

Whitney Bashor (The Bridges of Madison County) will star opposite the previously announced Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon) in the new musical Himself and Nora, it was announced today. Bashor will play Nora to Bogart's James Joyce and additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

Himself and Nora, with book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Brielle begins performances at the Minetta Lane Theatre (18 Minetta Lane, between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street) beginning on May 14th.

Directed by Michael Bush, produced by Cherie King and executive produced by R. Erin Craig, Himself and Nora will officially open on June 6th.

The Minetta Lane Theatre Box office will officially open on Saturday, April 2nd at 1pm for in-person ticket sales.

"We are thrilled to welcome Whitney to the cast of Himself and Nora," said author/composer Jonathan Brielle. "I am so knocked out by her acting, musicianship and incredible vocals. She blew me away in Bridges of Madison Countyand I can't wait to see her on our stage."

It was one of the world's great romances. She was the country girl from Galway whose burning sexuality and acerbic wit inspired the genius of James Joyce. Himself and Nora is a passionate musical that reveals the private life of one of modern literature's most controversial figures and illustrates the untold story of Joyce's lifelong love and muse Nora.

Developmental productions of Himself and Nora were produced by the Old Globe Theatre; Hamilton Stage and the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). Additional developmental work was done with the James Joyce Center in Dublin, Ireland.

Himself and Nora has choreography by Kelli Barclay, set design by Paul Tate dePoo III, costume design by Amy Clark, lighting design by Jason Lyons, and sound design byKeith Caggiano. Casting is by Geoff Josselson, general management by DR Theatrical Management, production management by Production Core and production stage management by CJ LaRoche.
