Directed by Daniella Topol, the Off-Broadway production will officially open June 13 at 7 PM. Performances continue through June 29.

The cast includes Drew McVety, Kate Nowlin and Henry Stram.

"When a father’s love of music clashes with his daughter’s passion for basketball, modernist composer Charles Ives is the perfect referee," according to press notes. "Charles Ives Take Me Home is a comedic and poignant story of dissonance, defense, and devotion."

The production manager is Eugenia Furneaux; the production stage manager is Kate Croasdale; and the assistant production manager is Alling Langin.
