Golden, whose Broadway credits also include Xanadu, The Full Monty, Hair and On the Town, leads a cast that features Georgia Cohen (12th Night), Daniel K. Isaac (Lost Tribe ), Jens Rasmussen (I Came To Look for You on Tuesday), Kiley Lotz and Angeliea Stark.

In Collier's play, the girls' mission to dig their way to China ultimately fails but sets them on an entirely new adventure. According to press notes, "not paying attention in geography class can take you in a different direction, and when a Tokyo businessman crawls out of the earth, the girls get a glimpse of an exotic world way beyond the town’s borders. This irreverent, mythic and magical play explores the isolation and terror the Australian landscape provokes with its strange inhabitants and dangerous beasts."

The production features scenic design by Gabriel Hainer Evansohn, lighting design by Burke Brown, costume design by Moria Sine Clinton, sound design by Elisheba Ittoop and Becca Pickett as stage manager.

59E59 Theaters is located at 59 East 59th St., between Park and Madison Aves., New York. Tickets can be purchased online at 59e59.org or by calling (212) 279-4200.
