George Street Playhouse has announced full casting for Curvy Widow, starring Tony nominee Nancy Opel (Honeymoon in Vegas, Urinetown). The show will close out GSP's 2016-17 season and mark the final show performed in the Playhouse's current building. Performances will run from May 2-21 with an opening night scheduled for May 5.

Curvy Widow follows the exploits of a fiftysomething widow whose adventures in the least expected places reveal unexpected truths about life, love, survival, and sex. The show features an autobiographical book by Bobby Goldman with music and lyrics by Drew Brody. Peter Flynn directs with choreography by Marcos Santana.

Joining Opel in the cast are Andrea Bianchi (As the World Turns), Aisha de Haas (Rent), Elizabeth Ward Land (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Ken Land (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Alan Muraoka (Miss Saigon), and Chris Shyer (Mamma Mia!). Bianchi and Shyer appeared alongside Opel in a production of Curvy Widow at NC Stage last fall.

Rounding out the creative team are set designer Rob Bissinger, costume designer Brian Hemesath, lighting designer Matthew Richards, sound designers Ryan Rumery and M. Florian Staab, music supervisor Wayne Barker, and musical director Andrew Sotomayor.
