Irina Brook's Waiting for the Dream to Play La MaMa ETC in November
The piece uses a six person ensemble to play Shakespeare's sparring lovers, warring fairies and would-be actors. The company will feature Jerry Di Giacomo, Hovnatan Avedikian, Gerald Papasian, Christian Pellisier, Augustin Ruhabura and Emmanuel Guillaume.
Brook, daughter of director Peter Brook, debuted her production in 2005 at the outdoors Festival Dedans-Dehors (The Outside-In Festival) in Bretigny-Sur-Orge near Paris, France. It has since toured internationally. The engagement at La MaMa will mark the piece's U.S. premiere.
