JJJ Productions in association with Culture Project and Aaron Grant Theatrical, Inc. will present the world premiere of The Anthem, an original musical inspired by the Ayn Rand novella "Anthem," beginning May 20 Off-Broadway at Culture Project's Lynn Redgrave Theatre.
The Anthem has a book by Gary Morgenstein, music by Jonnie Rockwell and lyrics by Erik Ransom.
The new musical, which will feature an expansive aerial and circus environment, is described as such: "'Hunger Games' meets Ayn Rand in a far off future (several centuries after the early 1980s) in a social media gone mad world, where individuality is illegal. Prometheus (Jason Gotay) abandons everything to confront the State -- controlled by the overlord of evil efficiency, Tiberius (Randy Jones). With a forbidden copy of Ayn's Rand's ancient tome in hand, can Prometheus overthrow the system?"
The production will also feature music direction by Michael Gayle, music coordination by Mike Lunoe, scenic design by Robert Kovach, lighting design by Kryssy Wright, costumes co-designed by Kae Burke, sound design by Sean Hagerty, additional musical staging and choreography by Danielle Fusco, additional aerial choreography by Brian Ferree, aeriel rigging design by Joshua Sherer and props and projections by Ellie Engstrom. The stage managers are Jane Pole and Nicole Kuker. Casting is by Daryl Eisenberg Casting.
Performances are scheduled for Thursday-Saturday at 8 PM, Monday and Tuesday at 7 PM and matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM.
