Casting Set for Roberto Bolaño's Distant Star at Abrons Arts Center
The work is presented by Caborca.
Casting is set for Abrons Arts Center's production of Roberto Bolaño's Distant Star, adapted by Javier Antonio González and directed by Shira Milikowsky. Running September 14-October 1, the work is presented by Caborca.
The year is 1973. In Chile, a group of young poets meet to write, argue, critique, and flirt. Days later, the government collapses and the president is shot. Amid the brutality, one poet rises to fame as a skywriting daredevil — and, possibly, as a killer.
The ensemble cast includes David Skeist, Anne Gridley, Luis Moreno, Laura Butler Rivera, Jon Froehlich, Tania Molina, and Yaremis Félix.
The creative team includes Jian Jung (sets), Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew (lights), Sarah Cubbage (costumes), Bozkurt "Bozzy" Karasu (sound), and Kyoung H. Park (dramaturgy).
