The Old Globe has announced the cast and creative team for the world premiere of A Room with a View, a new musical based on the novel by E.M. Forster with book by Marc Acito, music and lyrics by Jeffrey Stock and additional lyrics by Acito. Scott Schwartz directs and music direction is by Boko Suzuki. The musical will run March 2 – April 8.
A Room with a View blends a gorgeous score with the timeless story that inspired the Academy Award-winning film. Amid the golden sunlight and violet-covered hills of Tuscany, sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch meets freethinking George Emerson and for the first time glimpses a world of longing and passion she had never imagined. Upon her return to her corseted Edwardian life, Lucy must decide whether to yield to convention or give up everything she has ever known.
The cast features Ephie Aardema as Lucy Honeychurch, Kyle Harris as George Emerson and Will Reynolds as Cecil Vyse. Aardema played Chava in the National Tour of Fiddler on the Roof and starred as Edwina in the Off Broadway production of Dear Edwina. Harris recently starred as Tony in the National Tour of West Side Story. Reynolds was last seen at the Globe as Frank Churchill in Jane Austen’s Emma – A Musical Romantic Comedy. Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba returns to the Globe to play Charlotte Bartlett, the overbearing chaperone of Lucy Honeychurch.
Also included in the cast are Glenn Seven Allen (Italiano, Albert), Etai BenShlomo (Freddy Honeychurch), Gina Ferrall (Miss Lavish, Mrs. Honeychurch), Jacquelynne Fontaine (Ragazza, Minnie), Edward Staudenmayer (Mr. Beeber) and Kurt Zischke (Mr. Emerson).
The creative team includes Heidi Ettinger (scenic design), Judith Dolan (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), Jon Weston (sound design), Bruce Coughlin (orchestrator), Michael Jenkinson (musical staging), Jan Gist (dialect coach), Tara Rubin Casting (casting) and Anjee Nero (stage manager).
Post-show forums led by the Globe’s creative staff will be held on Tuesday, March 13 and 20 and Wednesday, March 28 where you can discuss the play with members of the cast and crew. The Old Globe is located in San Diego’s Balboa Park at 1363 Old Globe Way. Click Here for tickets and more information.
