Directed by Dan Wackerman, the production — at the Bank Street Theatre — will officially open July 2 for a limited engagement currently scheduled to run through July 28. The cast features Peter J. Coriaty, Matthew DeCapua, Susan Greenhill, Lena Kaminsky, David Lavine, Geany Masai, Allan Mirchin, Steve Sterner, Caroline Tamas, Michael Tommer, Darcy Yellin and Josh Philip Weinstein. Set in 1910 Morning Star, according to press notes, "tells the story of the hopes and struggles of an immigrant Jewish family on the Lower East Side of New York. Becky Felderman, a widow, has brought her four children to America so they might have a better life than they would in Russia. Their fortunes are shaped by the momentous events happening around them: the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, World War I and the Great Depression."
The design team comprises Joe Spirito (sets), Jeffrey E. Salzberg (lighting) and Gail Cooper-Hecht (costumes).
Show times are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. There will be a special performance Monday, July 2 at 7 PM. Tickets, priced $20, are available by calling (212) 868-4444 or by visiting www.smarttix.com.
The Bank Street Theatre is located in Manhattan at 155 Bank Street.
