Photo Flash: First Look at New Georges' GOLDOR $ MYTHYKA: A HERO IS BORN at New Ohio Theatre

New Georges presents the World Premiere of Lynn Rosen's (Apple Cove with Women's Project) GOLDOR $ MYTHYKA: A HERO IS BORN directed by Shana Gold (Food and Fadwa with New York Theatre Workshop) now through April 27 at The New Ohio Theatre (154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

The production features Ben Beckley (Home/Sick with The Assembly), Jaspal Binning (Thomas Bradshaw's Job at The Flea), Christopher Gerson ("Desperate Housewives"), Kristin Griffith (Bethany at Women's Project), Jenni Meador, Bobby Moreno (Hand to God at EST), Garrett Neergaard (The Laramie Project with HBO), Rob Leo Roy (Helen Hayes Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in The Food Chain), Jenny Seastone Stern (Grimly Handsome), and Bubba Weiler (The Burnt Part Boys with Vineyard Theatre). The creative team will include Lighting Design by Lenore Doxsee (Obie Award for Target Margin's Mamba's Daughters), Props Design by Rachel Graf Evans, Set Design by Nick Francone (Vampire Cowboys), Video Design by Jared Mezzocchi (Princess Grace Theater Fellowship recipient) and Piama Habibullah (3-Legged Dog), Costume Design by Tristan Raines (The House of Von Macrame at The Bushwick Starr), Sound Design by Shane Rettig (Vampire Cowboys), and Choreography by Melissa Riker (Kinesis Project Dance Theatre). The Production Stage Manager is Danielle Teague-Daniels.

Watch, if you dareth, as love and hunger collide most fantastically with the elusive American dream. In hearty games of Dungeons & Dragons, young Bart and Holly escape the dreary reality of hauling money all day in armored transport vehicles. When jobs are lost and the boss starts looking at Holly funny, escape becomes reality, releasing Goldor & Mythyka upon the world! Thusly, lucre shall be heisted! Throngs shall cheer their criminal exploits! And Have Nots will rule the day. Until... reality regenerates with a vengeance.

Goldor $ Mythyka is based on a truly true story! In 2008, playwright Lynn Rosen read an article she couldn't get out of her head... A nice young couple enamored of fantasy role-playing games, Roger Dillon and Nicole Boyd, steal $7.4 million from an armored car company in Youngstown, Ohio. By the time they're captured just 350 miles away (in Pipestem, West Virginia), the public has dubbed them the "Goth Bonnie and Clyde."

Goldor $ Mythyka was originally commissioned in 2010 as part of The Germ Project. As a response to the growing trend towards small-cast, one-set plays, New Georges commissioned four playwrights to write BIG plays, plays of "scope and adventure" that are "unproduce-able" and that "encompass elements which extend and expand the conventional playwriting repertoire." For a long time, playwright Lynn Rosen had been sitting on the idea for G$M, based on a real-life story. She hadn't started it because her vision was for a play so BIG she didn't think it could ever be produced! When she got the "germ" assignment, she ran with the idea, adding layer upon layer of theatrical elements in delightful and imaginative ways: levitating actors, explosions, jump-cut style, audience participation, and sound and video cues which operate in continuous dialogue with the actors' work onstage. The play is notable for its technical complexity, but the theatrical tools aren't just there to add novelty, they're deeply embedded in the text and vital to the storytelling where they take on a life of their own. Repeated sound cues become a kind of code to aspects of Goldor & Mythyka's world, and video elements juxtapose with live action so that an action and its consequences inhabit a parallel moment for the audience, or lend insight into the characters' real desires.

The production, presented by New Georges at The New Ohio Theatre (154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington; Subway: 1 to Christopher Street, A/C/E or B/D/F to West 4th Street) will play a four-week engagement April 3-27; Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm, Sundays at 5pm, and Mondays at 7pm. Tickets ($25/$35 premium) may be purchased online at www.newgeorges.org or by calling 212-868-4444. For more information or to purchase group tickets call New Georges at 646-336-8077.
