Ensemble for the Romantic Century announced the cast for the first production of its 2017-18 season, Van Gogh's Ear, running August 10-September 10 at Pershing Square Signature Center.

Carter Hudson, currently starring in the FX television series Snowfall, headlines a cast that includes Kevin Spirtas (one of the producers of Dear Evan Hansen), mezzo-soprano Renée Tatum, and tenor Chad Johnson.

Written by ERC executive artistic director Eve Wolf, and directed by Donald T. Sanders, Van Gogh's Ear is described as follows: "The vibrancy of Van Gogh's paintings is only half his story. He frantically worked on several paintings at a time, experimenting with color and form. Time became his enemy as violent fits of madness and terrifying hallucinations consumed his being. Wrestling a fractured psyche with his determination to paint the beautiful, fragile world he saw, Van Gogh revealed his struggle to his brother Theo. ERC's Van Gogh's Ear brings the tormented creativity of Van Gogh to life."
