Vertigo Theater Company presents the world premiere of STREET CHILDREN, written by Pia Scala-Zankel and directed by Jenna Worsham. STREET CHILDREN runs now through December 17, 2016 in a limited engagement at New Ohio Theatre, located at 154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets in New York City. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Set in NYC in the late '80s, STREET CHILDREN explores the repression, romantic idealism, and high cost of living experienced by the transgender and queer community of the lower Hudson piers. The story follows the intertwining journeys of three young characters who are reeling in the aftermath of their beloved street mother's cruel murder. Ultimately, they must choose between the thrills and camaraderie of life as they know it, and the safety and stability of a quieter existence-albeit one potentially defined by isolation and ostracism.

The 15-member cast includes Lucille Lortel Award nominee Victor Almanzar (Between Riverside And Crazy at The Atlantic, Second Stage & Steppenwolf, Fox's "Empire," HBO's "High Maintenance"), Camilo Almonacid, Craig muMs Grant (Netflix's "Luke Cage," HBO's "OZ," A Sucker Emcee), Yadi Guevara-Prip (Amazon's "Mad Dogs," Basilica at Cherry Lane), Eve Lindley (USA's "Mr. Robot," WGN's "Outsiders," All We Had), JP Moraga (Hello, Dolly! at NY's Signature Theater, My Fair Lady at Actors Theatre of Louisville), Johnny Sibilly (HBO's "The Deuce," Starz's "Power"), Joslyn De Freece, Mariana Genesio, Paige Gilbert, Nicholas Gorham, Summer P. Minerva, MJ Rodriguez (Rent at New World Stages), Cece Suazo and Tamara Williams.

The production team includes Angelica Borrero (Scenic Design), Bernat Buscato (Costume Design), Daniel Melnick (Sound Design), Kate Bashore (Lighting Design), Addison Heeren (Prop Design), MJ Rodriguez and Tamara Williams (Choreography), David Anzuelo (Fight Choreography) and Katherine Barton (Production Stage Manager).

Performances are Tuesdays - Saturdays at 7:30pm. Tickets are $28 and $18 for students, and can be purchased at www.VertigoTheater.org or by calling 1-866-811-4111. For mature audiences 16+. The running time is 90 minutes.
