Ryan Scott Oliver's Darling, A Sexy Retelling of Peter Pan, Will Get Developmental Lab This Summer | Playbill

News Ryan Scott Oliver's Darling, A Sexy Retelling of Peter Pan, Will Get Developmental Lab This Summer A developmental lab of Ryan Scott Oliver's Darling, a dark and sexy retelling of Peter Pan, will be held this summer.

According to an Equity casting notice, WalkRunFly Productions will produce the lab, which is scheduled for June 10-July 1.

Michael Cassara will cast the lab, which is auditioning in New York City April 16. Robert Longbottom will direct with choreography by Greg Graham.

Darling was conceived by Brett Ryback.

Set in 1900s Boston, Darling "follows sixteen year old Darling as she encounters a boy named Peter, who offers the opportunity to run away with him. She takes it and finds herself swept into a seedy underground of jazz, sex, lost rentboys, and a mysterious white powder called Dust."

A private reading, also produced by WalkRunFly (led by producers Warren Adams and Brandon Victor Dixon), was held this January. It starred Jason Gotay and Ephie Aardema and was directed by Longbottom. Darling was featured on the "Bound for Broadway" episode of NBC's "The Apprentice" in 2010; in 2012, it was given a private workshop and developmental production as a collaboration between Retrop Production and RareWorks Theatre Company, in association with Sh-K-Boom Records, at Emerson College. In 2013, Darling received The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company New Musical Award.

Oliver is the winner of a Larson Grant, Rodgers Award, Lortel Award nomination, ASCAP Harold Adamson Award and New Musicals Awards from Weston Playhouse and Pace University. His muscials include 35mm: A Musical Exhibition, Mrs. Sharp, Out of My Head and We Foxes, among others.

His Jasper in Deadland begins performances this month at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre. Read more about the production here.
