      UglyRhino announces casting for their produtions of The Awakening and GLAMDROMEDA, which will take place this August at The Brooklyn Lyceum. UglyRhino’s 2012 micro-season places these mainstages plays at the heart of a larger artistic celebration, providing a variety of events on any given evening. What results is a social experience you can’t find in your traditional theater setting. The third annual micro-season will focus on music, surrounding the two entirely new musical plays developed by the UglyRhino team, with live bands, two free curated cocktails, and a DJ after party following Friday night performances. Both The Awakening and GLAMDROMEDA explore the unifying themes of personal, sexual and creative awakenings through unique musical compositions.

       

      The Awakening, an original play with songs adapted by Bryce Norbitz and Nicole Rosner from the classic novella by Kate Chopin, will feature Michael Bernstein (Nevin Porter in UglyRhino’s Centralia), Leighton Bryan (MFA in acting from NYU, BA from Brown University, and Summer Intensive at RADA), Eric Gravez (NYC debut), Austin Hohnke (Steve Martin’s WASP at Playwrights Horizons), Meghan E. Jones (Annie in The Real Thing with T. Schreiber), Kelsey Landon (Get Gone with The Glass Bandits), Jennifer McVey (Knives and Spoons Go On The Right with 3Roads Productions), Craig Mungavin (Cato at The Flea), Katie Tuminelly (Measure for Measure with The Public Theater),  Harrision Unger (Batz at The Brick/Joe’s Pub). The production will be directed by UglyRhino co-Artistic Director Nicole Rosner with Lighting Design by Catharine DiGirolamo, Original Music by Gisela Fulla-Silvestre, Choreography by Megan Kendzior, Costume Design by Oril Nativ, and Set Design by Kathryn Lieber.

       

      GLAMDROMEDA, a glam rock theatrical experience with Book by Bryce Norbitz, Music by Ben Bonnema, and Lyrics by Christopher Staskel with Additional Lyrics by Zayre Ferrer, will feature Fernando Contreras (Pipeline Theatre Company), Brett Robinson (She Kills Monsters at The Flea), and Steven Schmidt (National Tour of Cabaret). The production will be directed by UglyRhino co-Artistic Director Danny Sharron with Costume Design by Angela Harner, Lighting Design by Mike Inwood, and Set Design by Amy Rubin.

       

      UglyRhino’s 2012 Micro-Season will run August 15-31 at The Brooklyn Lyceum (227 4th Avenue at Union Street, Brooklyn), Wednesday through Friday at 8pm. Tickets ($18 including all the evenings events; $15 for all performances August 15, 16, & 17) are available online at  www.uglyrhinonyc.comAll ticket purchases will include two free curated cocktails. UglyRhino’s 2012 Micro-Season is proudly sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company.

       

      UGLYRHINO is a new way to experience theater. Expanding on our high quality productions, we integrate dynamic arts programming ranging from emerging musicians to warehouse parties. UglyRhino curates affordable evenings with a social atmosphere that capture the inimitable spirit of Brooklyn.

       

      “If you’ve always thought theater performances needed more of a party vibe, your day has come.” New York Press

       

      “Regardless of the evening’s fare, be prepared for a night of theater unlike any other.” Metro 

       

      THE BROOKLYN LYCEUM is a producing arts venue and cultural center on the edge of Gowanus. Originally opened in 1910 as an indoor bathing facility, it now plays host to a range of theater, music, dance, markets and community activities. The Lyceum programs small and large artistic works, working with both local and travelling professional groups, and has an array of activities throughout the year, including our large markets and conventions, zumba classes, a drop down batting cage and weekly jazz. The Lyceum Café is open every day, serving Intelligentsia coffee and fresh house-baked goods, including our famously addictive blueberry muffins and Emmet’s homemade bread.
