Oscar Winner Alexander Dinelaris to Direct New York Premiere of Halcyon Days
The off-Broadway debut of Steven Dietz's historical play is produced by Oberon Theatre Ensemble.
Oberon Theatre Ensemble will present the New York premiere of Halcyon Days, a play written by Steven Dietz (Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure) and directed by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, On Your Feet!). Performances will run March 4-25 in the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theatre at the A.R.T./New York Theatres. Opening night is set for March 8.
The production is described as follows: "What did it mean to 'go viral' before social media? Halcyon Days is a shrewd satire exploring what it took to get America behind the 1983 invasion of the western hemisphere's smallest country, Grenada. This eye-opening exploration of the D.C. 'spin machine' is a brutally witty and thought provoking behind-the-scenes look at America's first public relations war."
The cast includes Rand Guerrero (Betrayal), Ralph Guzzo (The Count of Monte Cristo), William Laney (The Drawer Boy), Chris McFarland (Of Mice and Men), Hannah Jane McMurray (Dirty Dancing National Tour), Sarah O'Sullivan (Banshee), Tom Paolino (Everyone's Carol), and Gameela Wright (She's Gotta Have It).
The creative team will feature scenic design by Rebecca Lord-Surrat, costume design by Amy Sutton, lighting design by Greg MacPherson, sound design by Nick Moore, and projection design by Nathan W. Scheuer.
