"Lives of the Saints marks our seventh production of David Ives' work," Primary Stages artistic director Andrew Leynse said in a statement. "This collection of short plays, including three new pieces, is a mixture of humor, intellect, and farce and is a transformative step in Mr. Ives' mastery of the one-act form. We are thrilled to be working again with David and his long-time collaborator, director John Rando."
The production will feature scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Anita Yavich, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design and original music by John Gromada, wig design by Tom Watson and casting by Calleri Casting.
