Premieres NYC has announced the New York premiere production of Los Otros, a one-act musical with a book and lyrics by Tony nominee Ellen Fitzhugh (Grind, Paradise Found) and music by five-time Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party, Giant). Previews will begin August 24, for a limited run through October 8 at A.R.T./New York Theatres-Mezzanine Theatre. Opening night is August 31.
Through a series of intimate moments, two Californians, Lillian and Carlos, explore significant moments in their lives as they discover how they are linked in unexpected ways. Semi-autobiographical, Los Otros captures a universal story of interconnectedness, love, risk, and revelation through the lens of two peoples' lives.
Noah Himmelstein (The Lucky Star; I Am Harvey Milk) will direct the New York premiere, which features musical direction by J. Oconer Navarro (Caroline, or Change). Los Otros made its East Coast premiere in 2017 under Himmelstein’s direction, following a Los Angeles premiere in 2012 under the direction of Graciela Daniele (Ragtime, Once On This Island).
Los Otros will star three-time Tony nominee and Drama Desk winner Carolee Carmello (Parade, Finding Neverland), and Javier Muñoz (In the Heights, Hamilton). Further creative team will be announced at a later date.
