Directed by Robert Ribar, the production will explore "unrequited lust and sexual taboos through a darkly comic queer aesthetic." Performances will continue through Oct. 16.
The cast will be headed by Davi Santos in the title role with Danny Baird, Daniel DeStefano, Francisco Huergo, John C. Hume, Frankie LaPace, Nick Moore, Eugene Michael Santiago and Ian Schulz.
The play, according to press notes, "follows Salome, the spoiled step-daughter of Herod, ruler of Judea, and her quest to obtain the affections of a feared prophet by any means necessary, including her infamous Dance of the Seven Veils."
The production also features set design by Jason Sherwood, costume design by Danielle Mahoney, lighting design by William Noguchi, original music by Ryan Marino and choreography by Fuerza Bruta cast member Ben Hobbs.
