News   PTP/NYC Returns to New York With Serious Money and Monster
 
PTP/NYC, which has staged politically-minded theatre in New York the past several summers, will return with a revival of Caryl Churchill's Serious Money and Neal Bell's "Frankenstein"-inspired work Monster.

Formerly known as the Potomac Theatre Project, PTP/NYC will offer the two plays in repertory from July 3-29 at Atlantic Stage 2. The productions mark the company's 6th summer season in New York.

PTP co-artistic director Cheryl Faraone will stage Serious Money, which officially opens July 10. It features music and lyrics by Ian Dury, Micky Gallagher and Chas Jankel.

The cast includes David Barlow, Megan Byrne, Alex Draper, James O. Dunn, Tara Giordano, Brent Langdon, Jeanne LaSala Taylor, Mathew Nakitare, Aubrey Dube, Gillian Durkee, Alicia Evancho, Charles Giardina, Meghan Leathers, Molly O’Keefe and Lucy Van Atta.

Here's how it's billed: "In a scathing satire set in the trading pits and boardrooms of London's financial district, acclaimed English playwright Caryl Churchill tackles the insider trading, corporate raiding and leveraged buyouts of the late '80s. Churchill's acidly funny, cocaine-fueled ride examines the abuses of power, greed and sexual politics that continue to resonate with the current global financial crisis."

PTP co-artistic director Jim Petosa will direct Monster, Bell's stage adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," which will officially open July 9. The cast includes Ken Cheeseman, Christo Grabowski, Paula Langton, Joe Varca, Noah Berman, Britian Seibert and John Zdrojeski. "Monster takes a disturbing yet poignant look at one man’s obsession with creating life, and the destructive after-effects of abandoning his creation," according to PTP/NYC.
