City: New York City

Additional Notes:
The August Strindberg Rep transports "Miss Julie" to an antebellum Louisiana plantation. The landowner's daughter Julie has just broken off her engagement. It's Mardi Gras; she and the master's black butler John dance and drink at her insistence. Hearing the roughneck field hands coming, they hide in his room while these rowdies vandalize the house in a never-before performed ballet sequence devised by Strindberg! Julie and John have had sex and plan to flee for New Orleans, take a steamer and open a hotel in Jamaica. She steals her father's cash box to pay for the trip, but their plan is thwarted when John's fiancee Christine the cook announces that she will tell the stable boy on her way to church not to let any horses out until the Master is back! ------------------------------------------------------ Starring Ivette Dumeng as Julie and Audelco Award winners Reginald L. Wilson* as John and Eboni Flowers* as Christine; Allison MacDonald, Brian Binion and Lloyd Ah'Mir Boyd III dance Ja' Malik's choreography. Adapted by Edgar Chisholm, designed by Miriam Crowe, Marisa Ferrara, Donna Miskend, Andy Evan Cohen and Lance Harkins, translated and directed by Robert Greer. ------------------------------------------------------ *These actors and stage manager(s) are appearing courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.

Hayes was arrested at the Istanbul airport in 1970 with two kilos of hashish taped to his body. The Turkish High Court sentenced him to life in prison. Five years later, Billy escaped from Imrali Island prison in the dead of night - rowing 17 miles across the open sea in a raging storm. On his return to the US, Hayes wrote MIDNIGHT EXPRESS. Published in 18 languages, the book was an instant best-seller. When the iconic film was released in 1978, Billy Hayes became a mythical figure, a cultural anti-hero known around the world.
