Keen Company Announces 2018-19 Season
In addition to Adam Gwon's Ordinary Days, the company will present the New York premiere of Chisa Hutchinson's Surely Goodness and Mercy.
Keen Company artistic director Jonathan Silverstein has announced his company's 2018-19 season, its 19th.
First up, as previously announced, is the first New York revival of Adam Gwon's musical Ordinary Days, directed by Silverstein. It will begin a limited engagement Tuesday, October 2, and run through November 17, with opening night set for Wednesday, October 17. Set in New York City, Ordinary Days follows four different characters and explores how their lives are mysteriously interconnected. Gwon's musical premiered in 2009 as part of the Roundabout Underground series.
Following that will be the New York premiere of Chisa Hutchinson's Surely Goodness and Mercy, directed by Jessi D. Hill, running February 27, 2019-April 14, 2019, with opening night set for Wednesday, March 13, 2019. According to a press release, the play "tells the story of a Bible-toting boy with a photographic memory who befriends the cantankerous old lunch lady. Against all odds, Tino and Bernadette help each other through the mess of growing up and growing old."
Casting and creative teams for both shows will be announced later.
