Actress Miriam Shor will reunite with her “Younger” co-star Sutton Foster in the New York City Center Encores! Off-Center’s production of Andrew Lippa’s “The Wild Party.”
Performances will run from July 15 through July 18.
This isn’t Shor’s first time on stage. She originated the role of Yitzhak alongside John Cameron Mitchell in the off-Broadway production of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”
Foster, of course, has spent some time on stage, too -- with 11 Broadway productions and two Tonys (“Thoroughly Modern Millie,” “Anything Goes”) under her belt.
The two “Younger” stars will be joined by Steven Pasquale (“The Bridges of Madison County”), who returns to “The Wild Party” -- and the role of Burrs -- after making his New York stage debut understudying the part in the original Manhattan Theater Club production of the musical. He’s recently been seen in a recurring role on TV’s “The Good Wife.”
Making up the rest of the primary cast of “The Wild Party” are some Broadway heavy-hitters, including Tony nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (“Motown”), Tony nominee John Ellison Conlee (“The Full Monty”), and “Pippin” alum Ciara Renée.
Renée’s making a return to the stage before starring as Hawkgirl in the CW’s newest “Arrow” spin-off, “Legends of Tomorrow.”
And for those bingeing “Orange Is the New Black” this summer, you’ll also see star Kimiko Glenn in the cast.
“The Wild Party” tells the story of a group of friends and lovers in one sinful night in a Manhattan apartment. It’s based on the 1928 Joseph Moncure March narrative poem of the same name. Lippa’s production, starring Idina Menzel, Brian d’Arcy James and Taye Diggs, opened in February 2000 at the MTC, where it played for 54 performances.
Coincidentally, a production of “The Wild Party” based on the same source material opened on Broadway that same season -- though it was written by Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe.
Leigh Silverman, who directed Foster on Broadway in “Violet,” will direct City Center’s “The Wild Party.” “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographer Sonya Tayeh will choreograph.
