Ars Nova announced two new additions to not only the cast of its world premiere production of the new immersive theater work KPOP, but its performance schedule as well.

Deborah S. Craig (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and Vanessa Kai will join what is described as "a high-octane immersive event that gives you a backstage pass to a K-pop music factory." Julia Abueva, Cathy Ang, Katie Lee Hill, Joomin Hwang, Jinwoo Jung, Jiho Kang, Deborah Kim, Susannah Kim, Ashley Park (Sunday in the Park With George), Sun Hye Park, James Saito, James Seol (Small Mouth Sounds), David Shih, Jason Tam (If/Then), John Yi, and Ebony Williams had been previously announced.

Also, Ars Nova has added two additional Saturday matinee performances, on September 16 and September 30 at 3pm, to its run at A.R.T./New York Theatres from September 5-October 7.

KPOP is presented in association with Ma-Yi Theater and Woodshed Collective. The music and lyrics are written by Helen Park and Max Vernon, and the book is by Jason Kim. Teddy Bergman directs. The creative team includes Jennifer Weber (choreography) and Woodshed Collective (immersive design).
