WILD ROOT FIRST LOOK WITH SUPPORT FROM LA MAMA & MARK HEIDEL

LA GALLERIA @ LA MAMA, NEW YORK, NY

"Michael Menzies has led the picaresque life many of us only dream of and he sets

it down with such wit and grace it's hard

to know which to envy more, his wealth of once-in-a-lifetime experiences or

his skill with a pen." - Christopher Lloyd,

Emmy-winning executive producer/writer, Modern Family & Frasier

Wild Root Co launches the developmental journey of Michael Menzies'  DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL with support from La MaMa and Mark Heidel with a staged "first look" staged reading of Menzies' new play based on his published memoir of the same name.  

 

Lured by film legend Marlene Dietrich and theatre icon Noel Coward and driven by a vivid imagination, a young man sets sail from rural New Zealand to New York by way of London, Paris and Berlin on the search of a lifetime.

 

The cast of DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL will feature Tony Award-nominee David Garrison (Broadway's THE VISIT, TITANIC, “Married With Children”), Ellen Foley (Broadway's INTO THE WOODS, "Night Court"), Sean Hudock ("Private Romeo"). The actors are appearing courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.

 

Multiple Barrymore Award-winner Charles Abbott will direct the workshop.

 

Presentations will take place at La Galleria @ La MaMa on Wednesday May 11, 2016 at 11:00 am.
