Wilson Jermaine Heredia Joins FringeNYC Line-Up
As previously announced, Wicked's Kristy Cates and Spamalot's Steven Stafford will appear in For the Love of Christ. Jenna Coker Jones and Dan Amboyer aree also featured in this musical that uses the onset of the AIDS crisis to satirize people's penchants for extremes, from religious mania to gay drama.
His Greatness, by Daniel MacIvor, examines two days in the last years of the life of playwright Tennessee Williams. This U.S. premiere will be directed by Tom Gualtieri and feature Peter Goldfarb, Dan Domingues, and Michael Busillo.
Mac Rogers (whose Universal Robots is nominated for two IT awards this year) returns to FringeNYC with Viral, about a woman who googles "painless suicide" and finds the people who will help her end her life -- if she will let them film it. The production fatures Rebecca Comtois, Kent Meister, Jonathan Pereira, Amy Lynn Stewart, and Matthew Trumbull.
Casting changes have also been announced for certain productions, including the revised version of the musical How Now, Dow Jones. Jefferson Award nominee Cristen Paige has replaced Sarah Litzsinger, who has withdrawn from the production due to a scheduling conflict.
Additionally, Jay Sefton will present The Most Mediocre Story Never Told; Geraldine Librandi, Quentin Mare and Margot White will star in The Crow Mill; and Patti Allison will head the cast of Graveyard Shift.www.fringenyc.org.
