SCARLETT DREAMS By S. Asher Gelman To Open At Greenwich House Theatre
Midnight Theatricals announced that Scarlett Dreams will be having its world premiere this spring. Previews begin on April 3rd, 2024 and opening night is set for Monday, April 15th, 2024 at Greenwich House Theatre.
The new play is written and directed by S. Asher Gelman. Gelman is probably best known for his play, Afterglow, which opened Off-Broadway in 2017 and became a sleeper hit, extending multiple times. A new production of Afterglow is currently playing a return engagement at Southwark Playhouse in London, where it completes its run on February 10th.
In Scarlett Dreams, siblings Milo and Liza have created RealFit, a fitness and wellness app designed for the OmniVision, a new Virtual Reality headset from OmniCorp. They bring in Milo’s husband, Kevin, to beta test the app prior to its launch. As Kevin engages with the app, he starts forming a connection with Scarlett, his virtual trainer. This development leads to an exploration of the intersections between technology and personal relationships, questioning how digital interactions impact human connections and shape our perception of reality.
The cast will feature Brittany Bellizeare as Liza, Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Kevin, Caroline Lelloucheas Scarlett, and Borris Anthony York as Milo.
The design team includes Christopher Swader and Justin Swader as c0-set designers, Emily Rebholz as costume designer, Jamie Roderick as lighting designer, Brian Pacelli as projection designer, Alex Mackyol as sound designer. Jeff Markowitz will serve as Production Stage Manager. Casting is by Hart Casting.
Scarlett Dreams is produced by Midnight Theatricals and Stefano Milici. Evan Bernardin Productions serves as general manager.
