The company bills Prelude this way: "Peter and Rita are two young, happy lovers who are getting married. On their wedding day, an old man comes up to kiss the bride. During this kiss, their souls exchange, and the young, beautiful woman Peter just married now houses the soul of an old man, leading to a breathtaking series of events that explores the enduring power of love and the nature of commitment, and asks how well can we ever know the ones we love."
Cassie Beck (The Norman Conquests, A Prayer For My Enemy, The Drunken City) stars as the bride Rita with Brian Sgambati (The Coast of Utopia, Frost/Nixon) as her husband Peter and MacIntyre Dixon (Broadway's Gypsy, Cyrano de Bergerac) as the Old Man. The cast also features Nancy E. Carroll (Present Laughter), Michael Hammond (Long Day's Journey Into Night), Ken Cheeseman (All My Sons), Jason Bowen, Ted Hewlett, Timothy John Smith and Cheryl McMahon. Huntington artistic director Peter DuBois directs.
