Cast, Creatives Announced for Orlando at Lyric Stage Company
Caroline Lawton will star in Sarah Ruhl's stage adaptation of the Virginia Woolf novel.
Lyric Stage Company announced the cast and creative team for its upcoming production of Orlando, Sarah Ruhl's adaptation of the Virginia Woolf novel, running February 23-March 25, with opening night set for February 25.
Caroline Lawton, Elise Arsenault, Michael Hisamoto, Rory Lambert-Wright, Jeff Marcus, and Hayley Spivey will star in the show. Under the direction of A. Nora Long, the creative team will include Richard Chambers (scenic design), Jessica Pribble (costume design), and Steve McIntosh (lighting design).
Orlando is described as follows: "In this joyful romance of gender roles and expectations, Orlando the man wakes up, after a particularly wild night in 17th-century Constantinople, to find himself a woman! She abandons herself to three centuries of navigating love, desire, and the world from an entirely different perspective. Oft described as the most charming love letter in literature — written by Woolf to Vita Sackville-West — Sarah Ruhl brings the novel to life on stage in a grand, epic adventure that transcends time, place, and gender."
