Directed by Kim Weild, the cast includes Eric Anderson (South Pacific) as G. Gordon Liddy, Stephen Bogardus (James Joyce's The Dead) as E. Howard Hunt, Philip Hoffman (Into the Woods) as John Mitchell, Lorna Luft (White Christmas) as Dorothy Hunt and Jennifer Foote (Follies) as Sally Harmony.
Room 16, according to press notes, "is a wry, dark, comedic look inside the unlikely friendship between G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt and the events surrounding the Watergate break-in in 1972. With a score spanning American popular musical styles from swing and big band to folk and early '70s rock, Room 16 is a fast-paced and darkly comedic look inside American political history."
Other members of the creative team include music director Vadim Feichtner and production stage manager Katrina Lynn Olson.
Ripley Grier is located at 520 8th Avenue. For more information and to make a reservation, email Room16res@gmail.com.
