News   Rent Tony Winner Wilson Jermaine Heredia Cast in New Comedy Tales from the Tunnel
Tony Award winner Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Rent's original Angel) will be part of the cast of Tales from the Tunnel, a new comedy about true NYC subway experiences co-written and co-directed by Troy Diana and James Valletti.

Rat King LLC, Adam Blanshay and Stephenie Overton in association with Brierpatch Productions will produce the new play, which is scheduled to begin performances July 10 at the 45 Bleecker Street Theatre with an official opening July 25 at 7 PM.

The cast will also include Farah Bala, Geri Brown, Carla Corvo, Brandon Jones, Vayu O'Donnell, Sam Rosenberg and Maria Silverman.

Tales from the Tunnel, according to press notes, "tracks the hilarious, outrageous and over the top true experiences that happen to all of us on the subway. From wackos and hook-ups to culture differences and that sly pinch, Tales from the Tunnel is a funny ride that tells quintessential New York stories. Experience the 'did that just really happen?' situations that most New Yorkers Facebook about as soon as they get off the train – provided that they don't get stuck in the closing doors."

The production will feature set design by Brad Zizmor, sound design by Jess Bauer and lighting design by Paul Miller with original music by Jason Diana.

Performances are Saturdays at 4 PM and Sundays at 7 PM. Tickets are $51.50 and can be purchased at, by calling (212) 239-6200 or by calling the 45 Bleecker Box Office at (212) 260-8250. Visit for more information.
