Randy Harrison (Queer as Folk) is replacing the previously announced Preston Sadleir in off-Broadway’s Atomic. Sadleir will instead appear in the upcoming revival of Titanic. Atomic, a new musical by Danny Ginges, Gregory Bonsignore and Philip Foxman will play from June 26 through August 16 at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row. Opening night is set for July 13.
Directed by Damien Gray, Atomic blasts open the doors of the Manhattan Project, a Government funded program of top scientists with the task of creating the world’s first Atomic Bomb. Leo Szilard is the mastermind behind atomic power, but his heart has reservations. Ethics, scientific progress, and true love are tested as Leo discovers exactly what he’s capable of when someone believes in him.
The cast will also include Euan Morton, Jeremy Kushnier, Sara Gettelfinger, David Abeles, Alexis Fishman, Jonathan Hammond, James David Larson, Preston Sadlier and Grace Stockdale.
