Diamond also directs the Manhattan engagement that officially opens Jan. 17, 2009 and will conclude Jan. 31, 2009.
Angela Carolfi and Kristin Ciccone are set to appear in the work, which according to press notes, "begins during an afternoon rehearsal of a fire-breathing, snake handling, come-to-Jesus anti-abortion skit in the basement of a major research hospital. Two women, Nina and Anne, diligently rehearse their parts as Maria from The Sound of Music and Founding Father George Washington. But mysteriously, every day at the same time, the rehearsal is interrupted by Nina's trip to the Treatment Room. Mad scientists Dr. Freud and Dr. Nietzsche enter to observe 'The Treatment' that Anne administers to Nina. On this day however, all hell breaks loose."
Waiting for the Show has lighting design by Juan Merchan and sound design by David Burgess.
