Terence Archie, Desmin Borges, Michael T. Weiss, et al. Set for The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity logo
Terence Archie
Terence Archie will play the title role in Kristoffer Diaz's The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, which will begin previews on April 27 at Second Stage Theatre in anticipation of an official opening on May 20. Edward Torres will direct the production.

The piece is about a middle rank pro-wrestler who may have discovered his ticket to the big time: a charismatic, trash-talking Indian kid from Brooklyn whom he recruits as the perfect foil to the All-American champion, Chad Deity. But when their rivalry is used to exploit racial stereotypes in the name of ratings, all three men find themselves fighting for much more than the championship title.

Archie recently appeared in Ragtime on Broadway and was seen in Camelot with the New York Philharmonic. The company will also feature Usman Ally (Vigneshwar Paduar aka "VP"), Desmin Borges (Macedonio Guerra aka "The Mace"), Christian Litke ("Billy Heartland"), and Michael T. Weiss (Everett K. Olson aka "E.K.O.").

The creative team will include Brian Sidney Bembridge (scenic design), Christine Pascual (costume design), Jesse Klug (lighting desing), Mikhail Fiskel (sound design), and Peter Nigrini (projection design).
