Tony winner Duncan Sheik and Tony nominee Kyle Jarrow's Noir officially opens June 9 in its world premiere run at Houston, Texas' Alley Theatre. The new musical, which began previews June 2, is set to run through July 3.
Featured in the cast are Broadway alums Christy Altomare (Anastasia, Mamma Mia!) as Scarlet, Adam Kantor (The Band's Visit, Fiddler on the Roof) as The Neighbor, and Morgan Marcell (Hamilton, Moulin Rouge! The Musical!) as The Wife. Joining them are additional Broadway veterans David Guzman (Hamilton) as The Husband, Clifton Samuels (Follies) as The Boss, and Voltaire Wade-Greene (Hamilton) as The Goon. Sinclair Daniel plays The Kid.
Noir follows a heartbroken and reclusive man who finds comfort in his radio until his new neighbors, a couple, move into the apartment next door. The lives of the three become entangled in a dangerous way as his eavesdropping turns from entertainment to obsession, bringing the noir film genre to the stage.
