Roundabout Theatre Company has announced full casting for the world-premiere of Amy and the Orphans, by Roundabout Underground alumna Lindsey Ferrentino.
Directed by eight-time Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis, the cast will feature Vanessa Aspillaga, Mark Blum, Diane Davis, Josh McDermitt and Debra Monk, alongside the previously announced Jamie Brewer as Amy.
Amy and the Orphans will begin previews Off-Broadway on 1 February, 2018, ahead of an official opening night on 1 March, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This will be a limited engagement through 22 April, 2018.
The play centres around Amy, a woman with Down syndrome who helps her family deal with their father’s death.
Together, they careen down the Great American Long Island Expressway, navigating strip malls, traffic jams and some serious (and not-so-serious) family drama.
An unexpected turn reveals the moment that changed their lives…and the fact that Amy may be the only one who knows her own mind.
The creative team includes Rachel Hauck (Scenic Design), Alejo Vietti (Costume Design), Kenneth Posner (Lighting Design) and John Gromada (Sound and Original Compositions).
