This Beautiful Future, which previously enjoyed a sold out run at Theaterlab, will return Off-Broadway later this year. The Rita Kalnejais play will appear at the Cherry Lane Theater September 10–October 30. Get a look at the upcoming production in rehearsals below.
Francesca Carpanini (All My Sons), Angelina Fiordellisi, and Tony nominee Austin Pendleton (The Little Foxes, The Minutes) will return to the production, and will be joined by Uly Schlesinger (HBO Max's Genera+ion) in his New York stage debut. Jack Serio will again direct.
The work, which made its world premiere in 2017 at London's The Yard, is set in the middle of World War II as two teenagers take shelter from a divided world. Elodie is French and 17. Otto, a German soldier, is 16. Safe from the debris outside, they meet secretly for one night, fall in love, and fall through time.
The creative team for This Beautiful Future includes Frank J. Oliva (scenic design), Stacey Derosier (lighting design), Ricky Reynoso (costume design), Christopher Darbassie (sound design), Lacey Erb (projection designer), Ashley-Rose Galligan (production stage manager), Ryan Kane (assistant stage manager), Taylor Williams (casting), and Mott/Fischer Productions (general management).
