Jennifer Brown Stone and David S. Stone's new romantic comedy The Diorama begins previews May 28 prior to an official opening May 30 at Theatre Row's Lion Theatre.

Directed by David S. Stone, performances continue through June 14. 

The cast includes Alberto Bonilla (The Laramie Project, Raft of the Medusa), Hunter Canning (War Horse, The Late Christopher Bean), Bob Greenberg (A Modest Suggestion, The Jazz Singer), Melissa Macleod Herion (The Little Dog Laughed) and Susan Louise O'Connor (Blithe Spirit, See Bob Run).

"The Diorama is a new offbeat romantic comedy about love, igloos and the fine line between artistry and insanity," press notes state. "When her artist sister Cecily invades her NYC apartment, Wall Street lawyer Janey gets more than she bargained for when Cecily begins constructing a life size igloo. While the two sisters seek a sense of belonging — either in a relationship or a safe place to call home — they are haunted by the tragedies of the past. Along the way they teach each other about life, love and happiness."

The creative team comprises Wendy Seyb (choreographer), Jen Varbalow (scenic designer), Sidney Shannon (costume designer), Joe Doran (lighting designer), Nick Simone (sound designer), Kate Mulhauser (props master), Eric Parness (artistic consultant), Emily Hamburger (stage manager) and Rachel Reiner (general manager).



The Lion Theatre is located at 410 West 42nd Street. Visit DioramaThePlay.com for more information.
