Primary Stages and Ensemble Studio Theatre have announced that Tina Benko (Irena's Vow) will join the cast of Informed Consent, a new play by Deborah Zoe Laufer that will play the Duke on 42nd Street from August 4-September 13. Benko will assume the role of Jillian, after the previously announced Annie Parisse had to withdraw from the production due to a scheduling conflict. Liesl Tommy directs the production, which has an opening night set for August 18.
Informed Consent, a new drama about one woman's quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life, is inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country's largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon.
In addition to Benko, the cast includes Pun Bandhu (Wit), Jesse J. Perez (Recent Tragic Events), DeLanna Studi (August: Osage County), and Myra Lucretia Taylor (Nine).
Informed Consent features scenic design by Wilson Chin, costume design by Jacob A. Climer, lighting design by Matthew Richards, original music and sound design by Broken Chord, and projection design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.
