First Look at Martha Clarke and Alfred Uhry's Angel Reapers
Clarke also directs and choreographs the work.
Signature Theatre has released photos from its currently running production of Martha Clarke and Alfred Uhry's Angel Reapers. Clarke also directs and choreographs the work, which runs from February 2-March 13, with opening night set for February 22 at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Featuring traditional Shaker songs and a stunning mix of modern dance and actual Shaker movements, Angel Reapers captures the soul of the Shakers, an early American religious sect, which sought to connect with God through ecstatic ritual and strict celibacy. While the congregants strive desperately to maintain divine purity, the needs of the flesh threaten to take hold.
The cast is made up of Sophie Bortolussi, Nicholas Bruder, Asli Bulbul, Lindsey Dietz Marchant, Ingrid Kapteyn, Rico Lebron, Gabrielle Malone, Sally Murphy, Matthew Oaks, Andrew Robinson, and Yon Tande.
