Montego Glover and Company Preview MCC's All the Natalie Portmans
The new play is written by C.A. Johnson.
The cast of C.A. Johnson's All the Natalie Portmans met the press on January 15 at the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, where the production will begin performances February 6. Kate Whoriskey directs.
All the Natalie Portmans is a fantastical new coming-of-age comedy. Sixteen-year-old Keyonna and her older brother Samuel live on the brink of eviction while dreaming of a better tomorrow. Too smart, "too gay," and too lonely to fit in, Keyonna escapes into a world of rom-coms, red carpets, and all the iconic characters played by her muse, Natalie Portman. But when "all the Natalie Portmans" start talking back to her, Keyonna finally has to face her off-screen drama in this imaginative new play that reminds us to embrace life on the ground while still reaching for the stars.
The cast includes Joshua Boone, Tony nominee Montego Glover, Elise Kibler, Renika Williams, and Kara Young.
The creative team includes scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, and sound design by Sinan Refik Zafar.
