Schweizer directs his adaptation of the Norwegian epic that will run through May 22 at Copaken Stage. The production will then transfer to the La Jolla Playhouse, running June 28-July 24.
The cast features Danny Gavigan (Peer Gynt/Buttonmoulder), Birgit Huppuch (Ase/Solveig), Luis Moreno (Peer Gynt/Troll King), Kate Cullen Roberts (Ingrid/Anitra) and Evan Zes (Peer Gynt/Mads Moen).
Designing Peer Gynt are David Zinn (scenic design), Christina Wright (costume design), Darrell Maloney (lighting and projections design) and Ryan Rumery (sound design/composition).
According to KC Rep, "Schweizer’s imaginative interpretation of Peer Gynt is a wild, hilarious and surreal theatrical adventure about a man who dreams, swindles and charms his way through life as he pursues his exhilarating quest for fame and fortune."
