John Lawler stages the production that officially opened Oct. 14 at the Zephyr Theatre. The work played an extended Off-Broadway engagement at Soho Rep in 2005 under the direction of Daniel Aukin.
The cast features Wallace Bruce, Bobby Campo, Bryan T. Donovan, Alana Dietze, Liz Fenning, Christopher Fields and Jarrett Worley.
According to the Echo, "Everything Will Be Different, A Brief History of Helen of Troy tells the story of teenaged Charlotte, whose beautiful mother is dead. In the midst of her own grief and her father’s unwillingness to cope, she turns to the story of Helen of Troy for comfort, convinced that beauty, desire and fame can help her bring her mother back and punish the world that took her away in the first place. Charlotte finds herself searching in fantasy for what she cannot find in reality, and she ends up destroying the life and dreams of perhaps the only friend she ever really had. In the depths of pain, she comes to discover an unexpected grace."
