Directed by Barry Harman, performances will continue through Oct. 12. The cast will be headed by Jack Noseworthy as photojournalist Russell Price with Tony nominee John Herrera, James DePaiva, Jodi Stevens, Isabel Santiago, Patrick Murney, Caesar Samayoa, Gina Naomi Baez, Enrique Cruz DeJesus, Juan Torres-Falcon, Melvin Bell, Roger DeWitt, Phil Hernandez, Ioana Alfonso and Jessica Diaz.

Under Fire was penned by Barry Harman (book and lyrics) and Grant Sturiale (music). The new musical, based upon the 1983 motion picture of the same title, is described as such: "The seemingly peaceful South American country of El Mirador in truth struggles under the bloody heel of a ruthless dictator Tacho; who conceals the unrest with a smoke screen of prosperity and stability. Russell Price, a young American photojournalist, is swept up in the passionate culture of a world in turmoil and is confronted with a decision that will stir his passion, challenge his personal beliefs and professional ideals as he searches for the 'One Picture' that will define his career and the future of a country."

The production will feature choreography by Jonathan Cerullo, set and costumes by Merope Vachliotis, fight choreography by Ron Peritti, sound design by John Petrafesa and video design by B. Jeffrey Madoff.

Show times are Sept. 30 at 8 PM, Oct. 1 at 1 PM, Oct. 4 at 8 PM, Oct. 9 at 9 PM, Oct. 10 at 1 PM and Oct. 12 at 5 PM.

The Theater at St. Clement's is located at 423 West 46th Street. Tickets, priced $20, can be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or (866) 811-4111.
