News   PHOTO CALL: Roundabout Revives Streamers Off-Broadway
Director Scott Ellis is currently rehearsing with his cast for the upcoming Roundabout Theatre Company staging of David Rabe's Streamers.

Previews begin Oct. 17 toward a Nov. 11 opening at Off-Broadway's Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The ensemble cast includes Hale Appleman, Larry Clarke, Ato Essandoh, Brad Fleischer, Charlie Hewson, John Sharian and J.D. Williams.

In Streamers, as press notes reveal, "four young soldiers fresh from boot camp wait anxiously in 1965 Virginia, watching the Vietnam conflict escalate. As they struggle to make sense of their new life in the army, tensions rise over race, sexuality, and class, culminating in an explosive act that changes them forever. Streamers is an unflinching exploration of the turmoil and confusion facing young men threatened by forces beyond their control."

Here is a first look at the cast in rehearsal:
