News   Off-Broadway's The Ark Gets a New Noah in Adrian Zmed
Every good ship needs a captain, and Off-Broadway's The Ark has enlisted Adrian Zmed to take on the role of Noah, replacing David Hess a week before the Oct. 14 first preview.

The opening of the Bible-inspired tale at 37 Arts Theatre, 450 W. 37th Street, is Nov. 14.

The Ark has music by Michael McLean and book and lyrics by McLean and Kevin Kelly. Erik Orton and Karen Walter Goodwin are producing, and Ray Roderick (I Love a Piano, The Music Man national tour) directs and choreographs.

"Adrian Zmed will play Noah in this fun, contemporary retelling of the ancient, universal flood story," according to the producers.

Adrian Zmed (Broadway's original Grease and its 1994 revival, TV's "T.J. Hooker," Hollywood's "Bachelor Party" and "Grease 2") knows from rudders: He was Noah (as well as Adam) in Steven Schwartz's Children of Eden at Paper Mill Playhouse.

The cast of The Ark also includes Annie Golden (The Full Monty, Hair), Marie-France Arcilla, D.B Bonds (The Last Five Years, Les Miserables), Justin Brill (All Shook Up, Mamma Mia!), Julie Foldesi (Little Women), Janeece Aisha Freeman, Jacquelyn Piro (Under The Bridge, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon), Chuck Ragsdale and Rob Sutton (We Will Rock You). Tickets are $66.25. Performances are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 7 PM, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM, with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the box office at (212) 560-8912, by calling Ticketmaster (212) 307-4100 or going to For more information, visit
