Ciara Renée, Damon Daunno, More Join Lauren Patten in THE LONELY FEW at Geffen Playhouse
The full cast for the world premiere of The Lonely Few at Geffen Playhouse has been revealed. Joining Tony winner Lauren Patten as Lila will be Damon Daunno as Dylan, Ciara Renée as Amy, Joshua Close as Adam, Helen J Shen as JJ, and Thomas Silcott as Paul.
The musical follows Lila as she tries getting by in her Kentucky hometown—scanning groceries at the Save-A-Lot, caring for her erratic brother, and living for Friday nights, when she plays a gig with her band called The Lonely Few. Her routine gets upended, however, when a touring musician named Amy passes through town and offers the opportunity of a lifetime.
Performances begin February 28 at the Geffen’s Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater with an opening night set for March 9. In addition, the theatre will be turned into “Paul’s Joint,” a Kentucky-themed dive bar, offering audiences table seating, couches, and barstools, along with traditional theater seats.
The Lonely Few features a book by Sundown playwright Rachel Bonds and music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak (A Crossing). Trip Cullman (The Rose Tattoo) and Ellenore Scott (Funny Girl choreographer) co-direct.
Serving on the creative team are scenic designer Sibyl Wickersheimer, costume designer Samantha C. Jones, lighting designer Adam Honoré, sound designer Nick Kourtides, intimacy director Sasha Nicolle Smith, dialect and voice Coach Tré Cotten, dramaturg Phaedra Michelle Scott, production stage manager Talia Krispel, and assistant stage managers Lauren Buangan and Julian Olive. The music team features music supervisor Bryan Perri and music director Myrna Conn, with orchestrations by Bryan Perri and Zoe Sarnak. Casting is by Beth Lipari and Phyllis Schuringa.
The Lonely Few is produced in association with FourthWall Theatrical. For more information and tickets, click here.
