”Wolf Play” Announces Full Cast for Off-Broadway Return
MCC Theater, in collaboration with Ma-Yi Theater Company, has announced the complete cast of the off-Broadway return of Hansol Jung’s Wolf Play, which will begin previews January 26, 2023, ahead of an official opening night February 14. The run is scheduled through March 5.
The story of a Korean boy who is adopted by one American family, and then “re-homed” to another family through an Internet forum, Wolf Play made its New York debut at Soho Rep last season in what TheaterMania’s review called “this season’s most heartwarming (and heart-wrenching) family comedy.” The review also praised the “furious improvisation” of director Dustin Wills’s staging.
Nicole Villamil (Robin), Esco Jouléy (Ash), and Mitchell Winter (Wolf) will reprise their roles in this return engagement. They are joined by newcomers Christopher Bannow (Peter) and Brian Quijada (Ryan).
Wolf Play will reunite the Soho Rep production’s design team and feature scenic design by You-Shin Chen, costume design by Enver Chakartash, lighting design by Barbara Samuels, sound design by Kate Marvin, puppet design by Amanda Villalobos, and properties by Patricia Marjorie. Hannah “Rock” Roccisano is the fight director and Kasson Marroquin is the production stage manager.
