News   Broadway Regulars Join West Coast Premiere of David Ives' The Metromaniacs
San Diego's Old Globe Theatre has announced the complete cast for the West Coast premiere of David Ives' The Metromaniacs, an adaptation of Alexis Piron's classic French farce. The staging, which features Broadway vet Adam LeFevre (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), is helmed by Michael Kahn and presented in association with Shakespeare Theatre Company.

The cast also includes Benjamin Cole, Christian Conn (Desire Under the Elms), Cary Donaldson (Mrs. Warren's Profession), Michael Goldstrom, Peter Kybart (Awake and Sing!), Amelia Pedlow, Connor Sullivan and Dina Thomas.

Performances of The Metromaniacs are set to begin Jan. 30, 2016 and are scheduled to run through March 30. An official opening night is scheduled for Feb. 4.

"In 18th Century Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people like Damis have gone métromanie—crazy for poetry," states a description on the Old Globe's website. "Damis has a serious case of verse-mania, so much so that he falls in love with his favorite poetess, not knowing that his idol is actually a middle-aged gentleman writing under a pen name! Soon we’re off and running in a breathless series of complications, plot twists, and mistaken identities."

The creative team includes James Noone (scenic design), Murell Horton (costume design), Mark McCullough (lighting design), Matt Tierney (sound design), Adam Wernick (original music), Laura Stanczyk, CSA (casting director), Carter C. Wooddell (additional casting), and Jess Slocum (production stage manager).

Performances will take place at the Old Globe's Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in San Diego. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased by visiting
