The Roundabout Underground cast of Kingdom Come by Jenny Rachel Weiner met the press at their rehearsal studio on October 16. The production, directed by Kip Fagan, will run October 7-December 18 at the Black Box Theatre at The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, with an opening night on November 2.
The production's cast will feature Crystal Finn (Layne), Carmen M. Herlihy (Samantha Carlin), Alex Hernandez (Dominick Aquendo), Socorro Santiago (Delores Aquendo), and Stephanie Styles (Suz).
In Kingdom Come, Samantha is lonely and confined to her bed. Layne is shy and too afraid of the world to journey into it. When both women decide that online dating might be the outlet they need, they venture into the wilds of the Internet and find deep connection in each other. The only problem is that they’re each pretending to be someone else.
Roundabout Underground is an initiative to showcase new plays that will either give a debut production to an emerging writer or director or allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots. Robyn Goodman serves as artistic producer, with associate producers Jill Rafson and Josh Fiedler.
