News   Waterwell Will Be Looking for Mr. Goodbar Free in East River Park Presentations
 
The world premiere of Goodbar, a new play with music that brings to life the 1970's novel and film "Looking for Mr. Goodbar," will be presented free in Manhattan's East River Park beginning Aug. 20.

New York theatrical troupe Waterwell and the rock band Bambï are collaborating on the work that is offered as part of the City Parks Foundation SummerStage series. Performances will take place at 8 PM through Aug. 22. Arian Moayed will direct.

Hanna Cheek, Cara Jeiven, Jimmie Marlowe, Tobi Parks and Kevin Townley will inhabit the play, which will "explore the timeless themes of sexuality, independence and persona as seen refracted through a disco ball. Join Bambï and Waterwell as they take on this dark classic, celebrating New York in all its grim glamour."

Goodbar will have scenic design by Nick Benacerraf, lighting design by Adam Frank, costume design by Erik Bergrin and video design by Adam Koch. Robert Signom, III will serve as stage manager.

Judith Rossner penned the 1975 novel, inspired by real events, about a New York City schoolteacher with a dangerous sexual appetite. Diane Keaton starred in the 1978 film.
