Rehearsals are underway for Daniel and Patrick Lazour's new musical We Live in Cairo at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. The production, directed by Taibi Magar, is set to begin performances May 14 for a run that will continue through June 16.
Inspired by the young Egyptians who took to the streets to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, We Live in Cairo follows six revolutionary students armed with laptops and cameras, guitars and spray cans as they come of age in a contemporary Cairo.
The production stars Sharif Afifi, Abubakr Ali, Waseem Alzer, Layan Elwazani, Jakeim Hart, Dana Omar, Gil Perez-Abraham, and Parisa Shamir.
