The cast for our upcoming production LARGER THAN LIFE, The Supersized Plays, is now set and some stellar actors have signed on to realize the theatrical creations of the youngest playwrights to join The 52nd Street Project. The kids started their Playmaking classes here at the Project in September. They and their dramaturge/directors went away to the Stone Ridge area of upstate New York for the weekend November 13-15, where the kids wrote the plays. And now the directors and actors are at work in rehearsal to bring it all to life.
The Kids: Lauren Amador-Cruz, Lily Kuzminski, Ayman Musa, Bryanna Ohene Kari-Kari, Leonel Perez, Derek Rey, Selena Sanchez, Gage Simmons, & Beyonce Thomas.
The Actors: Jose Aguila, Sofiya Akilova, Lisa Benavides-Nelson, Jonathan Bock, Bobby Cannavale, Nehassaiu DeGannes, Bjorn DuPaty, Edie Falco, Ceci Fernandez, Carl Hendrick Louis, Mozhan Marnó, Bhavesh Patel, Carra Patterson, Joe Paulik, Mallory Portnoy, Jeanine Serralles, Joe Tapper, & Frank Wood.
The Dramaturge/Directors: Chelsea Hackett, Korey Jackson, Garrett Kim, Sarah Krohn, Kareem Lucas, Rebecca Martinez, Alexandra O’Daly, John Sheehy, Jeremy Stoller, & Emma Weinstein.
Composer: Avi Amon.
