News   PHOTO CALL: Elizabeth Stanley, Alan Campbell, Max Von Essen and Cast of Hello Again Meet the Press
 
Elizabeth Stanley, Alan Campbell, Max Von Essen and the cast of Transport Group's new Off-Broadway production of LaChiusa's Hello Again met with the press on the first day of rehearsal on Feb. 1.

The full company includes Tony nominee Alan Campbell, Blake Daniel, Jonathan Hammond, Rachel Bay Jones, Nikka Graff Lanzarone, Robert Lenzi, Alexandra Silber, Elizabeth Stanley, Tony nominee Bob Stillman and Max Von Essen.

 

Here's a look at the cast:

This first major New York revival of the 1993 musical that follows the sexual encounters of various lovers will be directed by TG artistic director Jack Cummings III (TG's The Audience and The Boys in the Band). Performances begin March 4, with an opening of March 20, at 52 Mercer Street. The production runs through April 3.

Hello Again has words and music by LaChiusa, and is suggested by Arthur Schnitzler's 1900 Vienna-set play La Ronde, which shows the connections made between ten related couples. Lincoln Center Theater produced the musical Off-Broadway in 1994; a cast album preserves the score.
