Full Casting Announced for Head of Passes
Alana Arenas, Kyle Beltran, and more join Phylicia Rashad at the Mark Taper Forum in Center Theatre Group's production of Tarell Alvin McCraney's play.
Joining the previously announced Phylicia Rashad are Alana Arenas, Francois Battiste, Kyle Beltran, J. Bernard Calloway, James Carpenter, John Earl Jelks, and Jacqueline Williams. Tina Landau directs the production, as she did with the play's New York premiere at the Public Theater last year, in which Rashad and some of the cast members of this Center Theatre Group production also starred.
In McCraney's play, "family and friends are gathering to celebrate Shelah's (Rashad) birthday under the leaky roof of her home at the mouth of the Mississippi River. But an unwanted birthday party and unrelenting rains are only the first challenges in this contemporary parable inspired by the Book of Job in which unexpected events turn the reunion into the ultimate test of faith and love."
