Gomez, Burke and Shamos Cast in Creature Off-Broadway

News   Gomez, Burke and Shamos Cast in Creature Off-Broadway Drama Desk nominee Leigh Silverman will stage playwright Heidi Schreck's Creature Off-Broadway at the Ohio Theatre beginning Oct. 27.

Page 73 Productions and New Georges will present the New York playwrighting debut of actress and playwright Schreck. Creature will officially open Nov. 2 and run through Nov. 21.

Silverman (Well, Coraline, Retributionists) will direct a cast that features Sofia Jean Gomez (Arabian Nights) as Margery, Marylouise Burke (Savannah Disputation, Kimberly Akimbo) as Juliana of Norwich, Jeremy Shamos (Gutenberg! The Musical!) as Father Thomas, Darren Goldstein (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as John, Tricia Rodley as Nurse and Will Rogers as Asmodeus/Jacob.

"In 1401, a gorgeous young beer-brewer named Margery Kempe sets about trying to become a saint. Seduced by a vision of Jesus Christ in robes of purple — her favorite color — she battles her family, the church, and an intense appetite for earthly pleasures in an improbable bid for salvation. In Creature, contemporary and medieval imaginations collide; it's a very funny, a little bit scary new play about faith and its messengers," according to press notes.

Designing Creature are Rachel Hauck (set design), Matt Frey (lighting design) Theresa Squire (costume design) and Katie Down (sound design).

For tickets, phone (866) 811-4111. The Ohio Theatre is located at 66 Wooster Street.
