Does the face a young man shows to his adoptive parents and teachers hide who he truly is? Find out when the world premiere of JC Lee's Luce, about an all-star high school student with a damaging secret, begins performances at Lincoln Center Theater’s Claire Tow Theater on October 5. Directed by May Adrales, Luce will officially open on October 21, and will run through November 17 at the off-Broadway theater.
Starring Marin Hinkle, Neal Huff, Okieriete Onaodowan, Olivia Oguma and Sharon Washington, Luce tells the story of Amy (Hinkle) and Peter (Huff), who think they've adopted the perfect son in Luce (Onaodowan). But when a teacher makes an alarming discovery during a locker search at the school, Amy and Peter are forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted years ago from a war-torn African country.
The creative team for Luce includes scenic design by Timothy R. Mackabee, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff. LCT3 is a programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists as well as developing new audiences.
