Tony nominee Montego Glover and Broadway alum Quentin Earl Darrington will star in Resounding’s upcoming drive-in theatre production Beyond the Veil at Radial Park in NYC. As previously announced, the show will run April 30–May 1 at 8 PM ET.
A ghost thriller by Steve Wargo, the play stars Glover (Memphis, Hamilton) as Rebecca, a spiritualist medium determined to bring justice to the dead, and Darrington (Cats, Once on This Island) as the Narrator, a small-town doctor wracked with grief and beset by spectral visitations.
The cast also features Alyssa Fox as Mother, Siho Ellsmore as Miriam, Mary Jo McConnell as Cora, and John Stimac as Father. Wargo will direct the play, with sound design by Josh Samuels.
Additional productions as part of Resounding’s month-long residency include Treasure Island (May 14–15) starring Rob McClure, and Triassic Parq: The Musical (May 21–23), featuring members of the original Off-Broadway cast. Casting announcements are expected soon for Clu-eth (April 23–24) and The Tempest.
Audiences will be able to take in performances at Radial Park in their own vehicles or at reserved, socially distanced picnic tables; atmospheric projections will be seen on Radial Park's screen. There is also the option of listening remotely via live audio stream.
