Adam Kantor (The Band's Visit) and Emily Walton (Come From Away) will star as Harry and Louise, respectively, in the upcoming Off-Broadway premiere of Darling Grenadine at Roundabout Underground. The new musical by Daniel Zaitchik is a bittersweet Manhattan story about charismatic songwriter Harry and clever chorus girl Louise, Harry's brother Paul, and his beloved dog.
Rounding out the cast will be Jay Armstrong Johnson as Paul, Matt Dallal as Man, Aury Krebs as Woman, and Mike Nappi as The Street Musician.
