PHOTO CALL: Rock Musical Revolution, Starring Cady Huffman and Kate Shindle, Opens Off-Broadway

Revolution in the Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter — a new musical with book, music and lyrics by Ívar Páll Jónsson, based on a story by Ívar and Gunnlaugur Jónsson — officially opened August 13 at the Minetta Lane Theatre.

Directed by Bergur Ingólfsson, with choreography by Lee Proud and music direction by Stefán Örn Gunnlaugsson, the production began previews Off-Broadway July 31.

The cast is headed by Tony winner Cady Huffman and Kate Shindle with Michael Biren, Patrick Boll, Zach Cossman, Karli Dinardo, Rick Faugno, Danielle Kelsey, Graydon Long, Brad Nacht, Marrick Smith and Jesse Wildman.

Revolution, according to press notes, is a "surreal and philosophical story of a small and somewhat naïve nation located in the elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson and their desire for greatness. Roiled by passion and great ambition, what will this once-idyllic community find... riches, ruin or redemption? The answers in this 'Horton Hears a Who'-like world can be found rocking the stage at the Minetta Lane Theatre." Here's a look at opening night:
