Theatre 167 presents the world premiere of a new play by Tony nominee Tina Howe; Singing Beach begins previews July 22 prior to an official opening July 30 at HERE Mainstage (HERE Arts Center, 145 Sixth Avenue).
Directed by Ari Laura Kreith, the limited engagement will continue through August 12. Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:30 PM and Sundays at 4 PM.
The cast comprises Erin Beirnard, Devin Haqq, Jackson Demott Hill, John P. Keller, Tuck Milligan, Elodie Morss, and Naren Weiss.
An Obie winner, Tony nominee, and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, Howe is best known for her plays Museum, The Art of Dining, Pride’s Crossing, Painting Churches, and Costal Disturbances, which introduced Tim Daly and Annette Bening to Broadway audiences. In Singing Beach—Howe's first full-length play in eight years—a Category 4 hurricane is approaching Singing Beach, while the Sleeper clan is struggling with storms of its own. The drama, according to production notes, deals with “climate change, aging, and the power of imagination to change the world.”
The production also features scenic design by Jen Price Fick, lighting design by Matthew Fick, costume design by Caroline Spitzer, and prop design by Kelly Pooler. Working Artist Theatre is the associate producer.
Tickets, priced $30, are available from Ovationtix or by phone at (866) 811-4111.
