Full Casting Revealed for World Premiere of Dead Outlaw, New Musical From Creators of The Band's Visit
The Audible Theater production will be released globally as an Audible Original.
Full casting has been revealed for Audible Theater's world premiere of Dead Outlaw, a new musical by the original creative team of the Tony Award-winning The Band's Visit. It will play Audible's Minetta Lane Theatre February 28—April 7. The production marks Audible Theater's first-ever commissioned musical, and the work will eventually be released globally as an Audible Original.
Dead Outlaw features music and lyrics by Tony Award winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit) and Erik Della Penna, a book by Tony Award winner Itamar Moses (The Band’s Visit), and direction by Tony Award winner David Cromer (The Band’s Visit, Prayer for the French Republic). It follows Elmer McCurdy—an ambitious, turn-of-the-20th-century outlaw whose death ended a life of failed crime and alcoholism and began a brilliant career as a mummified side-show attraction that travelled the USA for decades. Yazbek and Penna have collaborated on 14 news songs, with Moses providing the book. The project is the brainchild of Yazbek, who reportedly has been fascinated with the story for three decades.
The cast will include Jeb Brown, Eddie Cooper, Andrew Durand, Dashiell Eaves, Julia Knitel, Ken Marks, Trent Saunders, and Thom Sesma. Understudies include Emily Fink, Austin Ku, George Merrick, and Max Sangerman.
The production will feature movement direction by Ani Taj, music supervision by Dean Sharenow, scenic design by Arnulfo Maldonado, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Heather Gilbert, sound design by Kai Harada and Josh Millican, soundscape composition by Isabella Curry, music direction by Rebekah Bruce, casting by Tara Rubin Casting‘s Peter Van Dam, properties by Faye Armon-Troncoso, and orchestrations by Erik Della Penna, Dean Sharenow, and David Yazbek. Cynthia Cahill serves as production stage manager, with technical supervision by Hudson Theatrical Associates’ Sean Gorski. Baseline Theatrical’s Jonathan Whitton provides general management.
