David Van Asselt’s A Fable celebrates its opening night on May 22. Under the direction of Daniel Talbott, the play will run through June 28 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
A Fable takes into question how each choice we make can drastically change our ending. The adventure of Jonny, an idealist spurred on by love to right a long-forgotten wrong, A Fable follow his encounters with a whole cast of characters—colorful and corrupt, lucky and ill-fated—as they each grope their way through a landscape of nationwide strife and corporate greed.
The cast includes Edward Carnevale, Liza Fernandez, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Maxwell Hamilton, Jerry Matz, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Eileen Rivera, Pamela Shaw, Samantha Soule, Alok Tewari, Sanford Wilson and Gordon Joseph Weiss. The play features music by Elizabeth Swados, sets by John McDermott, costumes by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Joel Moritz, projection design by Kaitlyn Pietras and sound design by Janie Bullard.
