Tickets are now on sale for the 1930s-set Zelda at the Oasis, a bio play about legendary starlet Zelda Fitzgerald. Directed by Andy Sandberg, the new drama by P.H. Lin stars Gardner Reed as Zelda and Edwin Cahill (Sweeney Todd) as Bar Man. Zelda at the Oasis begins performances November 16 at off-Broadway’s St. Luke’s Theatre. Opening night is set for December 4.
In Zelda at the Oasis, Zelda (Reed) escapes to The Club Oasis, a New York City bar, to drink alone. When she begins to chat with the bartender (Cahill), an aspiring musician who plays the piano, an unexpected friendship blossoms. As Zelda tells stories to the man, he begins to transform into characters from her past. Throughout the evening, Zelda struggles to come to terms with her desire to escape her husband's (The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald) shadow and be recognized for her own artistic merit.
Zelda at the Oasis features set design by Colin McGurk, costume design by Dustin Cross, lighting design by Grant Yaeger and sound design by Daniel Melnick.
