About this show

Receiving its World Premiere, Myth America invites audiences to take a tour through the eyes and voices of Americans from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds as they live out their American dreams and myths - both accomplished and crushed, with expectations exceeded and unfulfilled. From the Old West to Ike's 1950s and continuing through the 21st century, this ensemble-driven piece examines the vast range of America's Melting Pot and our conflicting views and values. Icons, idols and symbols are examined and explored - running the gamut from baseball (The Great American Pastime), to Marilyn Monroe, to the modern family unit and even the acquisition of the perfect vacuum. Playwrights: Arthur Kopit, Theresa Rebeck, Israel Horovitz, Rachel Axler, Ian Cohen, Brian Dykstra, Jason Grote, Matthew Paul Olmos, Julien Schwab, Saviana Stanescu, and Lloyd Suh Directors: Nicholas Cotz and Adam Fitzgerald Cast: Sean-Michael Bowles, Darian Dauchan*, Vivia Font*, Rich Fromm*, Ann Hu*, Kenneth Maharaj*, Rob Maitner*, Margo Brooke Pellmar*, Lori Prince*, James Saito* and Stewart Steinberg* (*) denotes member of Actors Equity Association Design Team: Rebecca Lord (sets), Kathleen Leary (costumes), Martin Vreeland (lighting), Christopher Rummel (sound)
