Asolo Repertory Theatre's Eureka Day opens May 13, following previews which began May 11 at FSU Center for the Performing Arts' Cook Theatre. The show will run through June 4.
Written by Jonathan Spector and directed by Bianca LaVerne Jones, the comedy follows an illness spreading at Eureka Day School that is on the merge of becoming an epidemic. The synopsis teases interpersonal conflicts between members of the community. It poses the question: When does "us" become "them?" The show will host multiple talkback experiences, following Tuesday performances May 17, 24, and 31.
The cast comprises Paul Slade Smith as Don, Anne Bowles as Suzanne, Jasmine Bracey as Carina, Celia Mei Rubin as Meiko, Chris Amos as Eli, and Trezure Coles as Winter. Understudies include Jessica Eckenrod, Zoë Kim, Sharon Pearlman, Jordan Rich, and Mikhail Roberts.
The creative team includes scenic design by Riw Rakkulchon; costume design by Devario D. Simmons; lighting design by James E. Lawlor III; sound design by Matthew Parker; projection design by Paul Deziel; and hair, wig and makeup design by Michelle Hart.
Celine Rosenthal is the associate artistic director, Lauren Erica Jackson is the directing fellow, Kristin Loughry is the stage manager, and Nia Sciarretta as production stage manager.
