New Georges (Susan Bernfield, Artistic Director; Sarah Cameron Sunde, Associate Director), the OBIE Award-winning downtown theater company founded in 1992, and New Feet Productions will present the world premiere of Emily DeVoti's thought-provoking new play "MILK," directed by Jessica Bauman. This Off Broadway engagement will be performed at HERE (www.here.org), 145 Sixth Avenue (enter on Dominick Street, one block south of Spring Street). Previews begin on April 26, and the official Opening Night will be Thursday, April 29 at 8:30 p.m. Performances will run through May 22.

Rural New England just before Reagan's second term. Meg (JorDan Baker) and Ben (Jon Krupp) are a creditor away from losing their family farm. To the rescue flies a high-powered businessman (Peter Bradbury) - in a private chopper no less - offering a tidy sum for a taste of farm life and the pure, raw milk that goes with it. Even before locavores roamed the earth, "back to the land" was hardly as simple as its promise; livestock and humans aren't known for behaving as expected. And so it is in "MILK," an elegant parable of change set on the cusp of a shifting American landscape.

The complete six-member cast for "MILK" will be: Carolyn Baeumler (Auroch, quite possibly the last living wild cow), JorDan Baker (Meg), Peter Bradbury (James), Jon Krupp (Ben), Anna Kull (Veronica), and Noah Robbins (Matt).The set design will be by Susan Zeeman Rogers, the costume design by Emily Pepper, the lighting design by Lenore Doxsee, and the sound design by Amy Altadonna.

The schedule for "MILK" (April 26 through May 22) will be: Mondays thru Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (with the following exceptions: the performances on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, April 26, 27, 28; May 3, 4, and 5 will be at 7:00 p.m.) Tickets will be $25.00 for general admission (including students and seniors), with a $35.00 reserved premium ticket also available. Monday night performances are "pay-what-you-will" at the door only. To reserve tickets, please visit www.here.org or call 212-352-3101.
