John Feltch and Mary Rasmussen star as father and daughter in the Alley Theatre production of Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice, which opens in Houston Feb. 4.

Alley Theatre artistic director Gregory Boyd directs the production, which began performances Jan. 30 and runs through March 1 on the Neuhaus Stage.

Rasmussen stars in the title role with Feltch as her father. The cast also includes David Rainey as Nasty Interesting Man/Lord of the Underworld and Jay Sullivan as Orpheus with Justin Doran, Philip Lehl and Melissa Pritchett.

Press notes for Ruhl's exploration of the Orpheus myth state: "On the day Eurydice is to marry her true love Orpheus, a misstep sends her to the surreal depths of the Underworld, where she has a surprising reunion and ultimately must decide whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living."

Designing the production are Hugh Landwehr (scenic design), Alejo Vietti (costume design), Rui Rita (lighting design), Josh Schmidt (original music and sound design) and Krissy Richmond (choreography).

A Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Clean House, Ruhl has penned Dead Man's Cell Phone, Melancholy Play, Late: a Cowboy Song, Orlando, Demeter in the City and Passion Play: A Cycle. Tickets are available by visiting or by phoning (713) 220-5700.
