Casting has been announced for The Fartiste, which will begin an Off-Broadway run at Sofia's Downstairs on October 9, with an opening scheduled for October 27. John Gould Rubin will direct the production, which will have choreography by Richard Move.

With book by Charlie Schulman and music and lyrics by Michael Roberts, the show revisits the true story of French flatulist and entertainer Joseph Pujol, whose unique talents propelled him to being the highest-paid performer at the Moulin Rouge in 1890's Paris. It was first performed at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2006.

The company will feature Nick Wyman, Lindsay Roginski, Herndon Lackey, Analisa Leaming, and Rachel Kopf, as well as sound effects artist Steven Scott.

The creative team will include Andrea Mincic (scenic design) and Kristina Makowski (costume design).
