MetroStage Season to Include Natascia Diaz In Jacques Brel...
The season will open with Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, starring Natascia Diaz (who appeared in the 2006 Off-Broadway production), as well as Bobby Smith, Bayla Whitten, and Sam Ludwig. The production, running August 30-October 21, will be directed by Serge Seiden with choreography by Matt Gardiner.
Next is Kathy Feininger's A Broadway Christmas Carol, a cross between the Dickens story and Broadway show tune parodies, running November 15-December 23 under the direction of Michael Sharp.
Running January 24-March 17 is Thomas W. Jones II's and William Knowles Ladies Swing the Blues, a 1955-set musical that explores the music, mythologies, and backstage stories of the 1940s and 1950s jazz scene.
The season concludes with Michael Hollinger's Ghost-Writer, directed by John Vreeke and running April 18-May 26. In the work, a novelist dies mid-sentence, but a typist continues to take dictation, and no one knows where the words are coming from.
