Jennifer Lim and More Set for Roundabout Underground's Usual Girls
Roundabout Underground will also present Something Clean by Selina Fillinger this season.
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced casting for its world premiere of Usual Girls by Ming Peiffer, part of its 2018-19 Roundabout Underground season. Tyne Rafaeli directs the production, which runs October 11-December 9.
Usual Girls is described as follows: "How do girls grow up? Quickly, painfully, wondrously. On an elementary school playground, a boy threatens to tell on the girls for swearing — unless one of them kisses him. But just before lips can touch, Kyeoung tackles the boy to the ground. The victory is short-lived. Over the coming years, Kyeoung's stories get stranger, funnier, more harrowing, and more familiar. This hilarious, explicit, gut-punch of a play bursts with playwright Ming Peiffer's bold, explosive voice."
The production will feature Abby Corrigan as Anna, Ali Rose Dachis as Marina/Older Girl #3, Midori Francis as Kyeoung, Karl Kenzler as Father, Jennifer Lim as Woman, Sarah Pidgeon as Sasha/Older Girl 2/KKG Sister, Ryann Redmond as Older Girl/KKG Sister, Nicole Rodenburg as Lindsay, and Raviv Ullman as Rory. The creative team includes Arnulfo Maldonado (sets), Jen Schriever (lighting), and Ásta Hostetter (costumes).
Roundabout Underground will also present Something Clean by Selina Fillinger, directed by Margot Bordelon, as the second part of its season. The new drama follows Charlotte, a wife and mother who'll try anything to put her family back together in the aftermath of a sex crime. It will run in April 2019.
