The world premiere of Craving for Travel, starring Michele Ragusa and Thom Sesma, officially opens Jan. 22, following previews that began Jan. 9 at the Peter J. Sharp Theater.
Greg Edwards (Neurosis: A New Musical, Taking the Plunge) and Andy Sandberg's (Shida, The Last Smoker in America) play continues through Feb 9.
Directed by Sandberg, Craving for Travel features Ragusa (Young Frankenstein, Disaster!) and Sesma (The Lion King, The Times They Are A-Changin') playing 30 characters, including rival travel agents (and former spouses) vying for their industry's most prestigious honor: The Globel Prize.
"With their reputations on the line, travel agents Joanne and Gary will tackle any request, no matter how impossible, and any client, no matter how unreasonable," press notes state. "Full of overzealous travelers, overbooked flights, and hoteliers who are just over it, Craving for Travel reminds us why we travel — and everything that can happen when we do."
Commissioned and produced by travel agent Jim Strong, Craving for Travel's creative team includes Charlie Corcoran (set design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Tony nominee Michael McDonald (costume design) and Bart Fasbender and Dave Sanderson (sound design). Pamela Edington is the production stage manager, and Andrew Jones is the general manager.
