Sarah Cameron Sunde (Night Sings Its Songs) directs and translates Fosse's work, which will officially open at the 45th Street Theatre Sept. 7. The limited engagement plays through Sept. 27.
Sa Ka La, according to press notes, "takes place in a moment of crisis within a family when some of its members know a piece of bad news while the others have yet to hear about it. A mother has fallen victim to a stroke, on her 60th birthday, and it takes her three grown children, Nora, Hilde, and Ola completely by surprise. Meanwhile, the rest of the family can't be reached as they wait for her party to begin. Sa Ka La is not a Norwegian phrase. It's some of the unformed words the Mother makes after suffering her stroke."
The company includes Noel Joseph Allain, Jacqueline Antaramian (Pride's Crossing), Mike Caban, Anna Gutto, Frank Harts (A Raisin in the Sun), Marielle Heller, Birgit Huppuch, Kathryn Kates and Raymond McAnally (God's Ear).
Designing Sa Ka La are Jo Winiarski (scenic design), Jennifer Caprio (costume design), Paul Hudson (lighting design) and David Margolin Lawson (sound design).
Tickets for Sa Ka La, priced $18, are available by phoning (212) 239-6200 or by visiting Telecharge.
