Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Cake See Rebecca Hall in Animal on Opening Night
The Atlantic Theater Company production of Clare Lizzimore's Animal, starring Rebecca Hall, celebrated its opening night on June 6. Gaye Taylor Upchurch directs the production at Atlantic Stage 2, which runs through July 2. Joining Hall in the company are Kristin Griffith, Greg Keller, David Pegram, Morgan Spector, and Fina Strazza.
Animal is described as follows: "Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career. So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is there something in the walls…? Her husband thinks she needs time; her psychiatrist suggests positive thinking. But then the visions start. A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival."
The production includes scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Sarah J. Holden, lighting design by Bradley King, sound design by Stowe Nelson, and original music by Daniel Kluger.
