Dominic Fumusa to Join Polly Noonan, T. Ryder Smith, et al. in Sarah Ruhl's Passion Play
The cast also includes Hale Appleman, Brendan Averett, Polly Noonan, Daniel Pearce, Alex Podulke, Keith Reddin, Godfrey L. Simmons Jr., T. Ryder Smith, Kate Turnbull, and Nicole Wiesner.
Inspired by the historic festivals where everyday citizens came together to elevate their communities by staging the life and death of Christ, Passion Play transports audiences first to 16th century England, where Queen Elizabeth threatens to shut down a small town's production; then to Nazi Germany, where Adolf Hitler's arrival at the famous Oberammergau Passion Play influences the lives of its cast and finally to Spearfish, South Dakota in 1984, as a local production becomes a campaign stop for a famous actor-turned-President running for re-election.
The creative team will include Allen Moyer (scenic design), Gabriel Berry (costume design), David Weiner (lighting design), David Van Tieghem (sound design), and David Anzuelo (fight direction).
