The new musical Noir by Tony winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, American Psycho) and Tony nominee Kyle Jarrow (The SpongeBob Musical) will make its world premiere at Houston, Texas' Alley Theatre June 2, before officially opening June 9. The new work is set to run through July 3.
The musical brings the noir film genre to the stage with the story of a heartbroken man turned recluse 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. See the new image below.
Starring in the production 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. Other Broadway veterans to be featured in the cast are David Guzman (Hamilton) as The Husband, Clifton Samuels (Follies) as The Boss, Voltaire Wade-Greene (Hamilton) as The Goon, and Sinclair Daniel as The Kid.
Sheik and Jarrow, who previously collaborated on Off-Broadway's Whisper House, are joined on the creative team by director Darko Tresnjak and choreographer Karla Puno Garcia.
Also included will be scenic designer Alexander Dodge, costume designer Linda Cho, lighting designer Ben Stanton, sound designer Dan Moses Schreier, projection designer Aaron Rhyne, fight director and intimacy coordinator Adam Noble, stage manager Linda Marvel, and assistant stage managers Trey Johnson and Jordan Canon-Kruis. Vocal arrangements will be by music director Jason Hart.
