The LAByrinth Theater Company's world premiere of Cusi Cram's Radiance, which was scheduled to begin Off-Broadway previews Nov. 1 at the Bank Street Theater, will now start performances Nov. 7 as lower Manhattan remains without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
The production will open as scheduled on Nov. 16. Patrons who purchased tickets for the cancelled performances should call the box office at (212) 513-1080 to exchange for a future date, according to the Labyrinth.
The Off-Broadway run reunites Ana Reeder (Hedda Gabler, Top Girls, Sight Unseen) and Kohl Sudduth (Take Me Out), who performed in a one-night-only reading of the play for Rising Phoenix Repertory in June. Suzanne Agins staged that production and returns to helm the Labyrinth engagement.
Completing the cast are Kelly AuCoin (Julius Caesar) and Aarom Roman Weiner (A Steady Rain).
Inspired by true events, here's how Radiance is characterized: "In 1955, Captain Robert Lewis walks into a bar off Hollywood Boulevard, looking to escape his guilt, his shame — and a tenacious television producer from 'This is Your Life.' What he finds instead is a mysterious woman, whose familiar face conjures visions of his dark past and a moment in time that irrevocably changed the world."
The design team includes David Meyer (scenic design), Emily Pepper (costume design), Nick Francone (lighting design) and Daniel Kluger (sound design).
