News   "Harry Potter" Actor to Lead Cast in Sheila Callaghan Premiere at Cherry Lane
 
"Harry Potter" actor Christian Coulson is set to star in the Off-Broadway Premiere of Everything You Touch by award-winning playwright Sheila Callaghan, presented by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

The cast also features Tonya Glanz from "The Good Wife," Miriam Silverman (You Got Older), Robbie Tann (4000 Miles), Nina Ordman (Chicago), Allegra Rose Edwards, Chelsea Fryer and Lisa Kitchens.

Directed by award-winning director Jessica Kubzansky, performances will run Jan. 28-March 29 at Cherry Lane Theatre.

Everything You Touch lends a sharp but comical eye to the fashion industry and according to Rattlestick, is a "viciously funny look at the struggle to find an identity that’s more than skin deep."

"Victor (played by Coulson) is a ruthless 1970’s fashion designer at the top of his game. Esme is his glamorous protégé and muse who is pushed aside when an ordinary Southern woman inspires Victor to make his artistry accessible to the masses. A generation later, a woman grappling with a healthy dose of self-loathing must wrestle her own family demons to find her way back through the world of fashion that won’t give her size a second look."

The creative team includes set design by Francois-Pierre Couture; costume design by Jenny Foldenauer; lighting design by Jeremy Pivnick; property design by John Burton: video design by Adam Flemming; and sound design is by John Zalewski. Everything You Touch was commissioned by True Love Productions. The New York Premiere is jointly presented by Rattlestick, True Love Productions and The Theatre @ Boston Court.

Sheila Callaghan's plays have been produced and developed at numerous Off-Broadway theatres including Soho Rep, Playwrights Horizons, The Lark and The Flea among others.
