NEWS AND UPDATES
May 29th - June 16th, 2019
Erica will be making her Theatre By The Sea debut this summer, originating the roles of Madame Mnemosyne and the Hysterical Woman in John McMahon and Jay Jeffries' new musical LOVE AND OTHER FABLES!
LOVE AND OTHER FABLES is a new, completely original "Screwball Romantic Musical Comedy"- a love letter to the Golden Age of Broadway. In this madcap imagining of his life, we watch the then-unknown Aesop create his eternal fables, woo the headstrong girl of his dreams, defend King Croesus and his wealth by untangling the mind-boggling conundrums of The King of Egypt and ultimately become the unlikeliest hero of the greatest fable of all. There are mistaken identities, love and hate at first sight, declarations of war, death and taxes, international imbroglios, tap-dancing Greek soldiers, one very impatient Egyptian and, of course, a wedding.
This production will be directed by Jay Binder and choreographed by Parker Esse.
