Neal Huff, Marin Hinkle and Okieriete Onaodowan star in the LCT3 world premiere of JC Lee's Luce, which officially opens October 21 at the Claire Tow Theater. Directed by May Adrales, Luce, about an all-star high school student with a dangerous secret, will play a limited engagement through November 17 at the off-Broadway theater.
In addition to Huff, Hinkle and Onaodowan, the cast of Luce features 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.
