Kip Fagan to Direct Brooke Bloom and More in Roundabout Theatre Company's Kingdom Come
The world premiere by Jenny Rachel Weiner will play at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced the director and full casting for the first new play of Roundabout Underground's newly expanded 2016-2017 season. The world-premiere production of Kingdom Come by Jenny Rachel Weiner will be directed by Kip Fagan from October 7-December 18 at the Black Box Theatre at The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, with an opening night on November 2.
The production's cast will feature Brooke Bloom (Layne), Carmen M. Herlihy (Samantha Carlin), Alex Hernandez (Dominick Aquendo), Socorro Santiago (Delores Aquendo), and Stephanie Styles (Suz).
In Kingdom Come, Samantha is lonely and confined to her bed. Layne is shy and too afraid of the world to journey into it. When both women decide that online dating might be the outlet they need, they venture into the wilds of the Internet and find deep connection in each other. The only problem is that they're each pretending to be someone else.
Roundabout Underground is an initiative to showcase new plays that will either give a debut production to an emerging writer or director or allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots. Robyn Goodman serves as Artistic Producer, with Associate Producers Jill Rafson and Josh Fiedler.
