The three other Jordan works that will see the New York stage this season will be Summer of the Swans (Lucille Lortel Theatre), Tatiana in Color (The Culture Project) and Boy (Primary Stages.) Jordan's play Tatiana In Color was published in "Women Playwrights, The Best Plays of 1997." Other works by the up-and-comer include libretto work on The Mice (with Neil Benjamin and Batboy's Larry O'Keefe) — which appeared as part of Prince Music Theatre's production of 3hree — and Sarah Plain and Tall with the same songwriting team.
St. Scarlet features a cast that includes Michael Chernus, Rosemarie Dewitt, Sasha Eden and Ivan Martin. The design team includes Eric Flatmo (sets), Joshua Bradford (lighting), Sarah Beers (costumes) and Eric Shim (sound).
Director Messina has helmed productions of Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against and Keith Reddin's Throwing Smoke. He currently appears in the cast of Salome: The Reading on Broadway opposite Al Pacino.
