Mary Faber Joins David Cale in Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky
The show, which has book and lyrics by Cale and a score by Cale and Jonathan Kreisberg, tells the story of Floyd, a former Country & Western star, who joins up with a 20-year-old free spirit with an electrifying voice. Cale's other work includes Lillian, for which he received an Obie Award, A Likely Story, and Deep in a Dream of You. Kreisberg, who will also be the show's music director and orchestrator, has played with many of the world's great jazz musicians. He can be found on Wednesday nights at La Lanterna in Greenwich Village.
The show's creative team includes David Korins (sets), Anne Kennedy (costumes), Chris Lee (lighting), and Ken Travis (sound). Calarco's directing credits include Shakespeare's R&J, and three works by Julia Jordan: Boy, Sarah, Plain and Tall, and Summer of the Swans.
