News   The Singularity with Taymor Collaborator Kris Pierce to Play the Flea Theatre Downtown theatre The Flea will stage Crystal Jackson's dark comedy The Singularity, presented by San Francisco's Virago Theatre Company. The creative team now features sound designer Kris Pierce, whose credits include Steve Martin's Broadway bound musical Bright Star and Julie Taymor's critically acclaimed A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Directed by Amy Fowkes, performances of the New York premiere will run July 29 through Aug. 15. Fowkes directs a cast that includes Laura Lundy-Paine, Dan Fagan and Michael Vega, returning to the Flea following last year's Arousal and The Lover. The Singularity is billed as a "lunatic comedy" set in a dystopian future. Lundy-Paine stars as Astrid, "a victim of the futuristic bureaucracy who desperately wants a baby but is on her last egg. Informed that her insurance has expired and with only 30 hours remaining, she races to have the procedure in an underground former veterinary clinic reeking of cabbage."

With sound design by Pierce, the creative team also includes set design by Mikel Glass.

The Flea Theater is located at 41 White Street, Manhattan. For more information and to purchase tickets visit TheFlea; ViragoTheatre or OvationTix.
