I am thrilled to directly share casting details for our first Underground production of the season, Jenny Rachel Weiner’s Kingdom Come. Please join me in welcoming Brooke Bloom (Layne), Carmen M. Herlihy (Samantha Carlin), Alex Hernandez (Dominick Aquendo), Socorro Santiago (Delores Aquendo), and Stephanie Styles (Suz) to the Roundabout stage. The cast will be joining us under the direction of Kip Fagan, a fantastic director with credits at Playwrights Horizons, Woolly Mammoth, Williamstown, and Primary Stages to his name. He has directed plays by the likes of Sheila Callaghan, Heidi Schreck, Jesse Eisenberg, and Christopher Durang, and will be making his Roundabout debut as a director with Kingdom Come – though he assisted Mark Brokaw on our 2005 production of The Constant Wife.
All of our actors, too, are making their Roundabout debuts, though you’ve likely seen them before. Brooke was recently nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her performance in Cloud Nine at Atlantic Theatre Company and received another nomination (and an Obie Award) for her performance in Page 73’s You Got Older. Carmen has appeared at Clubbed Thumb, Classic Stage, and Second Stage, and was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for her performance in crooked at the Women’s Project. Alex’s New York credits include Peter and the Starcatcher at New World Stages and Richard III for the Public’s Mobile Unit. Socorro has appeared on Broadway in The Bacchae and is a regular at top-tier off-Broadway and regional theatres. And Stephanie comes to us from the National Tour of Newsies. I look forward to seeing this wonderful cast bring yet another exceptional Underground production to life.
Preview performances for Kingdom Come will begin on Friday, October 7, 2016, with an Opening Night set for Wednesday, November 2nd. For tickets and more information, please visit our website.
