If you’re looking for a little summer romance with a twist, we’ve got our eyes on a new play opening at the Cherry Lane Theatre. What happens four weeks after a one-night stand? That’s the question tackled by Phoenix, a new play by Scott Organ starring Julia Stiles and James Wirt. A story that travels across 4,000 miles, the play showcases two people tackling the ideas of love and compulsion, forcing them consider a whole new world of possibility, though not one free of difficulty and loss.
The creative team includes direction by Jennifer DeLia, scenic design by Caite Hevner Kemp, costume design by Amit Gajwani, lighting design by Oona Curley, sound design by Janie Bullard and scenic art by Burton Machen.
