The Crusade of Connor Stephens, the latest show to play the Jerry Orbach Theatre in midtown’s The Theatre Center, will be live-streamed August 3.
Viewers must register to stream the 8 PM performance by visiting Crusade2017.com/Livestream.
Written by Dewey Moss, the new play chronicles the story of a Texas family following a school shooting. According to press notes, “In the midst of widespread media attention, their story becomes an allegory for the national debate over religion, tolerance, LGBT issues, and the seedlings of hate. With humor and resilience, they will discover the brutal universal truths that define the American family in the 21st century.”
The cast features James Kiberd (All My Children, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Ben Curtis (Take Me Out, Buried Child), Julie Campbell (Beautiful Thing, King Lear), Kathleen Huber (An Ideal Husband), Kathryn Leask (The Exonerated), Jacques Mitchell (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Clifton Samuels (Follies), and Alec Shaw (How to Transcend a Happy Marriage).
Directed by author Moss, the production features scenic design by James Noone, costume design by Teresa Snider-Stein, lighting design by Zach Blane, and sound design by David Lawson.
Same-day registration is $3.99, which includes subsequent post-show viewings.
