Flea Theater Extends Adam Rapp's Wolf in the River
The Flea Theater has extended the New York premiere of Adam Rapp's Wolf in the River through May 16. Directed by the playwright, the production features the Bats, the Flea's resident acting company.
In Wolf in the River, Rapp explores love and neglect, the challenges of poverty, the dangerous cost of shiftlessness, the simple notion of leaving a place behind, and the value of a girl. The production will take a three-week hiatus following the April 4 performance and will return on April 28 with a new pair of cast members in leading roles, Olivia Jampol and Kristin Friedlander. They replace Jack Ellis and Xanthe Paige, who opened the show.
The company also includes William Apps, Maki Borden, Alexandra Curran, Karen Eilbacher, Jack Horton Gilbert, John Paul Harkins, Artem Kreimer, Derek Christopher Murphy, Mike Swift, Kate Thulin, and Casey Wortmann.
The creative team includes Arnulfo Maldonado (scenic design), Masha Tsimring (lighting design), Michael Hili and Hallie Elizabeth Newton (costume design), Brendan Connelly (sound design), Zach Serafin (props design), J. David Brimmer (fight choreography), Sarah East Johnson (aerial consultant), and Anne Cecelia Haney (assistant director).
