Very excited to announce that the play this time round will be Le Fou by Bekah Brunstetter. Bekah is currently a writer and producer for NBC's This Is Us. Her plays include Oohrah! (The Atlantic Theater) and The Oregon Trail (WP Theater).
"Paris, 1899. The bell epoch. A parlor in the first department store ever, where the ladies sit, mid- shopping, getting drunk, writing letters to their illicit lovers. Loves are lost and hearts are born as the delicious scandal surrounding John Singer Sargent’s painting of Madame X unfolds."
The cast includes Jennifer Dorr White (Human Race Theatre Co., The Onion Network), Jill Melanie Wirth (The Normal Heart, La MaMa), Kathleen Choe (Geva Theatre), Aurora Heimbach (The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui), Jessica Giannone (Bristol Old Vic, Glasgow Citizens Theatre), Cori Hundt (Hudson Warehouse), Juan Luis Acevedo (MCC), Ian Harkins (Chichester Festival), Rafe Terrizzi (Peccadillo Theatre Co.), and Tim Nicolai (Z: The Beginning of Everything, The Public). Directed by Hannah Tova Wolff (Bachelorette, The Gallery Players).
