Casting has been announced for the New York Musical Theater Festival production of Jonathan Brielle’s Himself and Nora, which is billed as "a musical tale of one of the greatest romances of the 20th century."
Performances play the Theater at St. Clements, 423 West 46th Street, beginning July 9.
Directed by Michael Bush, the cast will feature Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys) as Himself, literary genius James Joyce; and Jessica Burrows (Doctor Zhivago) as the devoted chambermaid Nora with J.B. Wing, David Arthur and Brian Sills.
"In this bawdy and funny, uplifting, and melodic new musical," press notes state, "Himself and Nora sings the story of one of the great love affairs of the time. A love which resulted in their exile from their beloved Ireland, the condemnation of the Catholic church, and ultimately some of the greatest writing of the 20th century."
The creative team also includes musical director James Sampliner, choreographer Kelli Barclay, associate musical director Nathan Dame, set designer Michael V. Moore, lighting designer Cat Tate Starmer, costume designer Sara Jean Tosetti and sound designer Brad Berridge. The production manager is Jameson Croasdale.
Show times are July 9 and 11 at 8 PM, July 14 at 9 PM, July 15 at 3 PM, July 16 at 5 PM and July 19 at 1 PM.
