Soho Rep. Adds Second Extension for Is God Is
Taibi Magar directs the play by Aleshea Harris.
Soho Repertory Theatre announced a second extension for its currently running world premiere of Aleshea Harris's Is God Is. Originally scheduled to run through March 11, it will now play through March 31.
The work is described as "a modern myth that follows twin sisters as they sojourn from the Dirty South to the California desert to exact righteous revenge." Taibi Magar (Underground Railroad Game) will direct the production.
The cast includes Teagle F. Bougere, Anthony Cason, Nehassaiu deGannes, Jessica Frances Dukes, Caleb Eberhardt, Alfie Fuller, Michael Genet, and Dame-Jasmine Hughes. The creative team includes Adam Rigg (set design), Montana Levi Blanco (costume design), Cookie Jordan (hair and wig design), Matthew Richards (lighting design), Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste (sound design), Samantha Shoffner (props design), J. David Brimmer (fight director), Danielle Teague-Daniels (production stage manager), and Genevieve Ortiz (assistant stage manager).
Is God Is is Soho Rep.'s first production at its reopened lower Manhattan storefront at 46 Walker Street. The company previously had to close the theater in September 2016 and finish the rest of its 2016-17 season at different venues while the space was being renovated.
