Directors Jessi D. Hill, Sarah Rasmussen, Mia Rovegno and Nicole A. Watson stage the piece that has been developed over the past year-and-a-half. It is based on a quote by late La Mama founder Ellen Stewart, who said, "We play for the Gods and in return, they play for us."
We Play for the Gods began previews June 1 for a run through June 23 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
Joining Golden (Xanadu, Assassins) and Rolfsud (The Coast of Utopia) are Amber Gray, Alexandra Henrikson and Irene Sofia Lucio (Wit).
