Abingdon Theatre Company will present the off-Broadway premiere of Robin & Me: My Little Spark of Madness, written and performed by Dave Droxler. Directed by Chad Austin, performances will run April 15-May 14, with an official opening on April 20 at Theatre Row.
The production is described as follows: "Dave's got a lot on his mind. And the only person who can help him unpack it all is his imaginary friend and real life idol: Robin Williams. Robin & Me: My Little Spark of Madness is an autobiographical play that follows Dave as he becomes multiple characters and whimsically relives hilarious and difficult life moments, including the times when his father dropped the ball and Robin stepped in to get him through it. But how long will it take before Dave learns how to do it without Robin's help?"
The creative team will include Dawn Chiang (lighting design), Yi-Hsuan (Ant) Ma (set design), and Deb Gaouette (props design), with Allison Hohman serving as stage managee and Hannah Sgambellone serving as production manager.
