Pasadena Playhouse Announces casting for Sanctuary City
Pasadena Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Danny Feldman announced the Los Angeles premiere of Sanctuary City by Pulitzer Prize-winner Martyna Majok (Cost of Living). Performances are scheduled from September 14 through October 9. Tickets are on sale now, starting at $35 at pasadenaplayhouse.org.
The production stars Ana Nicolle Chavez (Apple TV +'s Truth Be Told) as "G," and Miles Fowler (HBO'sWinning Time) as "B." The production will be directed by Zi Alikahn, with scenic design by Chika Shimizu and lighting design by Solomon Weisbard.
Sanctuary City is the provocative, unforgettable story of two life-long friends, their tenuous grip on living in America, and persevering through whatever comes their way with wit and grit. Profoundly human and undeniably universal, it begs the question: how much do we owe to one another?
Recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award and Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Theater Development Grant, Sanctuary City "makes for a compelling contemporary drama that has enigmatic characters, rising intensity, vigorous argumentation, timely themes, and an underlying sense of humor and compassion." (amNY). In addition to the Los Angeles premiere of Sanctuary City, Majok's Pulitzer Prize-winning Cost of Living will open on Broadway this fall.
