Caissie Levy will join the cast of 'Murder Ballad' as the production transfers to the Union Square Theatre.

The acclaimed Manhattan Theatre Club production of Murder Ballad is heading downtown. The new musical, directed Trip Cullman, will play off-Broadway’s Union Square Theatre beginning May 7, with an official opening night set for May 22. The show will play a nine-week limited engagement.

Caissie Levy (replacing Tony winner Karen Olivo, who performed the role in the original production) joins original cast members John Ellison Conlee, Rebecca Naomi Jones and Will Swenson. Conceived by Julia Jordan, with a book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad tells the story of Sara (Levy), an Upper West Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. The new rock musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us.
