Chilina Kennedy and Cast of This Ain't No Disco Begin Rehearsals
Director Darko Tresnjak (Anastasia) and the company of Stephen Trask and Peter Yanowitz's This Ain't No Disco have begun rehearsals ahead of performances starting June 29 at the Atlantic Theater Company. Opening night is set for July 24. See photos from the rehearsal room in the gallery below.
Featuring a book by Trask, Yanowitz, and Rick Elice, and score by Trask and Yanowitz, This Ain't No Disco stars Krystina Alabado, Will Connolly, Eddie Cooper, Tony d'Alelio, Lulu Fall, Hannah Florence, Antwayn Hopper, Chilina Kennedy, Peter LaPrade, John-Michael Lyles, Krystal Mackie, Trevor McQueen, Nicole Medoro, Ian Paget, Theo Stockman, Samantha Marie Ware, and Antonio Watson.
Set against the grit, the garbage strikes, and the graffiti of 1979 New York City, This Ain't No Disco tells the story of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club. In their uptown/downtown quest for revelry and kinship, every decision is fateful in a city where one's fate can turn on a dime bag.
This Ain't No Disco will feature scenic design by Jason Sherwood, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Emily Lazar, projection design by Aaron Rhyne, and musical direction by Darius Smith.
