STAGE TUBE: Playwright Jeff Whitty and Director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar on the World Premiere of HEAD OVER HEELS
Opening at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a world premiere musical HEAD OVER HEELS, with book by Jeff Whitty and music and lyrics from the catalog of the Go-Go's.
Inspired by Philip Sidney's ARCADIA, this rollicking, comedic adventure tale, set in the Elizabethan period, will be directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar. OSF audiences appreciated Mr. Whitty's quirky and quick sense of humor in THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF HEDDA GABLER, directed by Rauch in his inaugural season as artistic director. Iskandar, the second youngest person ever nominated for a Drama Desk award in direction for his work on Amy Freed's RESTORATION COMEDY, has been called "THE emerging directorial talent of American theatre" (SFGate.com). Put all these talents together with a terrific cast on the Allen Elizabethan outdoor stage, and this surely promises to be an unforgettable evening.
