News   Casting Announced for Domitrovich Play at Off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre
 
Following an acclaimed run at Theater for the New City last year, Michael Domitrovich's Artfuckers, a play about artists and East Village gentrification, will begin previews at the DR2 Theatre in Union Square Feb. 8.

Directed by Eduardo Machado, the production will officially open Feb. 19 at 7 PM. The cast will feature Nicole LaLiberte (as Bella, a downtown "It-girl" and the daughter of a famous artist), Will Janowitz (as Owen, Bella's boyfriend, an obsessive contemporary art-star), Asher Grodman (as Trevor, a hot, newly successful electronic musician and Bella's latest conquest), Jessica Kaye (as Bella's sister Maggie, a tough as nails publicist) and Tuomas Hiltunen (as Max, a wunderkind designer whose fashion show brings the group together).

Artfuckers, according to press notes, "follows a group of hot, creative twentysomethings who are collaborating on their friend's debut showing at New York Fashion week. Using sex, status and New York City street smarts, the characters live in a world where everything is allowed and nothing is questioned… as long as it's in the name of art."

The design team includes Maruti Evans (set design), Margaret Moy (costume design), Ken Hypes (sound design) and Chris Kateff (video design).

Machado, primarily known as a playwright, is the author of over 40 plays, including The Cook, Havana Is Waiting, A Burning Beach, The Floating Island Plays, Once Removed and Stevie Wants to Play the Blues. Following a ten-year stint as the Head of Playwriting at Columbia University from 1997-2007, Machado is now on staff at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Domitrovich is the author of Dirtfag, Caregivers and Goatgod, all of which were presented in Sticky@Galapagos in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He is co-author of Machado's food memoir, "Tastes Like Cuba: An Exile's Hunger for Home." Show times are Tuesday-Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 5 and 9 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets, priced $25-$65, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. The DR2 Theatre is located in Manhattan at 103 East 15th Street.
