Theatre News: Next to Normal Barcelona, Richard III, Potomac Theatre Project,Romeo and Juliet and Adventures in Vegas

Next to Normal is the first Broadway title to be presented in a disruptive 100% immersive format. The musical that revolutionized musical theater a decade ago, will premiere a new version worldwide as part of the Barcelona Grec Festival in July 2022.

Its authors, Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, have adapted the book into 60 minutes for an immersive space of 2000 square meters with an audience and actors sharing the same space.

 

 

 

British director Simon Pittman will take a completely new approach to the storytelling for this contemporary Pulitzer winner book, with a proposal without set design or props, with surround sound design and 360-degree projections on the walls and floor where the audience will live this story with the cast.

Again, Alice Ripley, who premiered this play on Broadway, will be Diana Goodman. A role both physically and emotionally challenging that at the time led her to win the Tony Award. With her, Andy Mr. Jr., Jade Lauren, Eloi Gomez and Lewis Edgar will complete the live cast. On this occasion, the role of the psychiatrist will be virtual, with the renowned Adam Pascal playing this character.

Shakespeare In The Park brings Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (Slave Play, The Public’s Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and story-telling genius to The Delacorte with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab will open Free Shakespeare in the Park’s 60th Season with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.

The complete cast of Richard III will include Maleni Chaitoo (Ensemble), Wyatt Cirbus(Prince of Wales), Thomas DellaMonica (Understudy Ensemble) , Sanjit De Silva(Buckingham), Sam Duncan (Duke of York), Thaddeus S. Fitzpatrick (Ensemble), Skyler Gallun (Ensemble), Danai Gurira (Richard III), Sarah Nina Hayon (Ensemble), Monique Holt (Duchess of York), Matthew Jeffers (Ensemble), Matt Monaco (Ensemble), Gregg Mozgala (King Edward IV/Richmond (King Henry VII), Joe Mucciolo (Ensemble), Paul Niebanck (George), Xavier Pacheco (Ensemble), Marcus Raye Pérez (Ensemble), Grace Porter (Ensemble), Michael Potts (Lord Stanley), Ariel Shafir (Lord Hastings), Heather Alicia Simms (Queen Elizabeth), N’yomi Stewart (Ensemble), Ali Stroker (Anne), Sharon Washington (Queen Margaret), and Daniel J. Watts (Catesby Ratcliffe).
