I Was Most Alive With You Set to Open at Huntington Theatre
Craig Lucas' new play, performed simultaneously in English and ASL, begins this evening.
The show centers around Knox, a deaf, gay, recovering addict, and his family. When tragedy strikes Knox, the delicate balance of his life is thrown off. In the ensuing chaos, his family's and his own faith is tested. At turns heartrending and funny, the show tells a love story that audiences have never seen before.
The show's playwright, Craig Lucas, also directs the production, which features Marianna Bassham as Astrid, Nancy E. Carroll as Carla, Tad Cooley as Farhad, Steven Goldstein as Ash, Russell Harvard as Knox, Dee Nelson as Pleasant, Gameela Wright as Mariama, Joey Caverly as Shadow Interpreter/Ash, Amelia Hensley as Shadow Interpreter/Pleasant/Mariama, Monique Holt as Shadow Interpreter/Astrid/Carla, and Christopher Robinson as Shadow Interpreter/Farhad/Knox.
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (set and costume design), Mark Barton (lighting design), Daniel Kluger (sound design and original music), Lucy Mackinnon (projection design), Sabrina Dennison (director of artistic sign language), and Ted Hewlett (fight choreography).
Performances will run through June 26.
