Following the briefly-extended run of Adam Baum and the Jew Movie, Off-Broadway's Blue Light Theatre Company will turn to a very different ethnicity. Jessica Goldberg's The Hologram Theory, a thriller about a woman who travels from her home in Trinidad to New York City to find and bury her brother. Pulled into a society of rich folk, club kids and the media in Manhattan, she uncovers the mysteries of her brother's world.
Directed by Ruben Polendo, Hologram is set to start previews March 17 and open March 27 for a run through April 9, according to a spokesperson at the Springer/Chicoine press office. As with Adam Baum, the show will play at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, former home of Second Stage Theatre and Blue Light's year-long residence for the season. As of Feb. 18, casting is imminently expected for Goldberg's play.
Blue Light's fourth presentation is expected to be a large-cast classic in the tradition of the troupe's revivals of The Seagull, Waiting for Lefty and Golden Boy.
