Red Bull Theater has announced the cast for its one-night benefit performance of Marivaux's The Triumph of Love, translated by James Magruder and directed by Jesse Berger. The event will take place October 2 at Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre at Symphony Space.

Celia Keenan-Bolger, Arnie Burton, Clifton Duncan, Carson Elrod, Kristine Nielsen, and Molly Ranson will star. The Triumph of Love will have original music composed by Greg Pliska and performed live by Lumiere String Quartet.

The plot of the play is described as follows: "Princess Léonide of Sparta employs wits and wiles — and britches too — when she attempts a tour de force triple-seduction of not only her young love but also his two stick-in-the-mud guardians. Marivaux's 18th-century masterpiece asks: Can the rational really reign…when the heart refuses to follow?"

Red Bull Theater is a nonprofit off-Broadway theater company specializing in plays of heightened language. With the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries as its cornerstone, Red Bull Theater embraces the imagination of theatergoers through intimate, imaginative productions of great classic stories from all eras and cultures.
