This original production sends modern-day New York City to hell. As Dante, a foreigner, makes his way across a bizarro urban landscape with the help of his hipster guide Virgil, he finds that not everything is as it seems. Over the course of 24 hours, Dante and Virgil encounter dozens of the peculiar creatures that populate this nightmarish city and eventually come face to face with Lucifer herself.
INFERNO is rewarding for fans of the classic poem and new-comers alike. Whole scenes and characters are transplanted directly to the stage with a unique, very American twist. Like Dante's original, it is a political satire that calls out specific, recognizable individuals and assigns them a grotesque punishment in their own circle of hell.
Moran believes the classic is a perfect fit for our modern-day political, religious and social turmoil. “What if what is already bad became worse?” Moran said. “As we get deeper into hell, the images become more and more grotesque and disturbing—yet funny. We hope that you laugh and then go home and have a few nightmares.”
INFERNO stars Robbie Baum, Danielle Devine, Sarah Knittel, Whit Leyenberger, Kamelle Mills, Clint Okayama, Nicole Roberts, Christina Stone, Terence Stone and Marchelle Thurman playing over 50 characters. The creative team includes Executive Producer Nathan Zebedeo, Producer Katie Chambers, Set/Props Designer Ali Goldaper, Lighting Desigern Taylor Tobin, Costume Designer Erin Frumet, Sound Designer Anthony Jones, and Graphic Designer Miranda Leiggi.
