Two performances have been added to the run of Futurity, a coproduction between Soho Rep. and Ars Nova, running at the Connelly Theater from October 6-November 8. Matinee performances on October 25 and November 8 now join the run.

Futurity is a new musical by César Alvarez and the Lisps, directed by Soho Rep. artistic director Sarah Benson. The 13-member cast of actor-musicians includes Alvarez, Andrew R. Butler, Fred Epstein, Eric Farber, Eamon Goodman, Karen Evans Kandel, Kristine Haruna Lee, Jessie Shelton, Kamala Sankaram, Darius Smith, Tanyaradzwa Tawengwa, Storm Thomas, and Sammy Tunis.

The story centers on two people who try to imagine their way out of impossible circumstances. Julian is a Civil War soldier dreaming of a technological utopia. Ada is a mathematical genius thousands of miles away. Together, they're going to invent a machine to end one of the darkest periods in our history.
