News   Director Greif Moves from Parks' A to Cavedweller at NYTW, April 18-June 1 Busy director Michael Greif continues New York Theatre Workshop's season with Cavedweller. Previews for the Kate Moira Ryan-penned adaptation begin April 18 at the downtown venue for a May 8-June 1 run.

Cavedweller is taken from "Bastard Out of Carolina" novelist Dorothy Allison's sophomore offering with the same title. The play follows a woman's journey home to the children she left following the death of the rock star who took her away from them.

Greif, who originally helmed Rent at NYTW, has directed this season's BETTY RULES as well as Suzan-Lori Parks' Fuckin' A. He heads a creative team that includes Riccardo Hernandez (sets), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), Jennifer Tipton (lighting), Jerry Yager (sound) and Jan Hartley (projections).

The production will feature original music by Stephen Trask and Julia Greenberg. Trask is no stranger to the rock musical genre having collaborated on the Off Broadway hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch with John Cameron Mitchell.

The cast of Cavedweller includes Shannon Burkett, Stevie Ray Dallimore, Carson Elrod, Adriane Lenox, Jenny Maguire, Lynn McCullough, Deirdre O'Connell and Merritt Wever.

Tickets for the production at NYTW, 79 East 4th Street (between Bowery and Second Ave.) are available through Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 online at www.telecharge.com. For more information, visit www.nytw.org.
