Black Moon Theatre Company will present Oscar Wilde's erotic classic, Salome, at the Flea Theatre, July 8-23, with an opening on July 13. Rene Migliaccio will direct.

The play tells the Biblical story of the step-daughter of King Herod Antipas. Much to the dismay of her step-father, but to the delight of her mother Herodias, Salome requests the head of Iokanaan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter as reward for dancing the Dance of the Seven Veils, for revenge on Iokanaan who refused to yield to her desires.

The production will star Alessio Bordoni, Karina Fernicola-Ikezoe, Tatyana Kot, John Graham and Martin Meccouri, with additional casting to be announced.

The creative team will include Jason Sturm (lighting), Natasa Trifan (choreography), India Evans (mixed-media collages set design), Brenda Cooney (dramaturg/assistant director), Amaury Groc (music), and Hope Governali (costumes).
