Full casting has been announced for Oberon Theatre Ensemble’s world premiere of American Rapture: The Lonely Soul of a Crowded Nation, to be presented at the Beckett Theater at Theatre Row, February 14-March 1. Alex Dinelaris directs.

This evening of short plays pairs William Saroyan’s Hello Out There with original works by Dinelaris, to explore the unique mixture of loneliness and hope, which make up the American Experience.

The cast will include Jane Cortney, Max Darwin, Brad Fryman, Vince Gatton, William Laney, Dianna Martin, Donovan Patton, Laura Siner, Christine Verleny, and Stewart Walker. The production features scenic design by Kathryn Veillette and lighting design by Jessica Hinkle.

Dinelaris was nominated for a Lucille Lortel (Best Musical) and two Drama Desk Awards (book & lyrics) for his work on the musical, Zanna Don’t. His plays also include Red Dog Howls and Still Life.
