Second Stage Theater's 53% Of officially opens Off-Broadway at the McGinn/Cazale Theater June 28, after beginning performances June 14. Performances continue through July 10.
Written by Steph Del Rosso and directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene, the work centers on a group of women in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania preparing for a presidential visit and a group of 20-something white women in Brooklyn gathering to plan a revolution.
“In 2016, 53% of white women voted for our 45th president, a statistic that became an obsession for me," shared Del Rosso in an earlier statement. "This play is my attempt to find a frank, dark, and funny way to talk about white women—the ones who voted for him and the ones who didn't.”
Appearing in the cast are Anna Crivelli, Eden Malyn, Marianna McClellan, Grace Rex, Cathryn Wake, and Ayana Workman.
Greene leads a creative team that includes scenic designer Emmie Finckel, costume designer Lux Haac, lighting designer Mextly Couzin, sound designer and music by Jane Shaw, and dramaturg Christine Scarfuto. The production is cast by Karyn Casl of The Telsey Office.
