Tiffany Villarin Joins TEENAGE DICK, Full Cast Announced

Ma-Yi Theater Company in association with The Public Theater are pleased to announce complete casting for TEENAGE DICK, the world premiere of a new play by Mike Lew (Tiger Style!). The production, which comes immediately following Ma-Yi's phenomenal success with the critically acclaimed KPOP, nominated for nine 2018 Lucille Lortel Awards, will be led by Tiffany Villarin (returning to Ma-Yi after her performance in House Rules) and the previously announced Gregg Mozgala. TEENAGE DICK, which will be choreographed by Jennifer Weber (KPOP) and directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God, Present Laughter) will be presented from June 12 - July 15 Off-Broadway at The Public Theater (425 Lafayette St).

Rounding out the cast are Shannon DeVido (The Healing, Difficult People), Nick Dillenburg ("Orange Is the New Black"), Sasha Diamond (Significant Other), and Marinda Anderson (Bella: An American Tall Tale).

TEENAGE DICK is presented as a new fully realized production, having been developed by The Public Theater as part of its 2016 Public Studio Series. TEENAGE DICK is a brilliantly hilarious take on Richard III, Shakespeare's classic tale of power and lust. TEENAGE DICKreimagines the most famous disabled character of all time as a 16-year-old outsider in the deepest winter of his discontent: his junior year at Roseland High. Picked on because of his cerebral palsy (as well as his sometimes creepy Shakespearean way of speaking), Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class. But as he manipulates and crushes the obstacles to his electoral success, Richard finds himself faced with a decision he never expected would be his to make: is it better to be loved or feared?

TEENAGE DICK was commissioned and developed by The Apothetae (Gregg Mozgala, Artistic Director), a company dedicated to plays that explore and illuminate the "Disabled Experience." It was further developed during a residency at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference in 2016 (Executive Director, Preston Whiteway and Wendy C. Goldberg, Artistic Director). This current production by Ma-Yi Theater Company is part of The Lark's Venturous Playwright Fellowship Program, funded by Venturous Theater Fund of the Tides Foundation.

TEENAGE DICK features set design by Wilson Chin, costume design by Junghyun Georgia Lee, lighting design by Miriam Crowe, sound design by Fabian Obispo, and movement coordination by Robert Westley. Alyssa K. Howard is Production Stage Manager.
