Theater J presents the world premiere of David in Shadow and Light, by Yehuda Hyman and Daniel Hoffman. Directed by Nick Olcott, this production will be presented in the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater at the Washington DC JCC, May 6-June 22.

David in Shadow and Light is a modern musical retelling of the biblical tale of King David, who rose from boy shepherd to superstar ruler to aging king. This re-envisioning is framed by two characters, the Archangel Metatron and Adam, who according to ancient midrashic legend, find infant David and are compelled to watch his life.

The cast will feature Matt Pearson as King David, and will also include Norman Aronovic, Matthew Anderson, Carolyn Agan, Will Gartshore, Donna Migliaccio, Larry Redmond, and Bobby Smith, Russell Sunday, and Peggy Yates.

The creative team will also include Colin Bills (lighting design), Peter DiMuro & Shula Strassfeld (choreography), George Fulginiti-Shakar (musical director), Daniel Hoffman (composer), and Misha Kaufman (set design).
