Ayn Rand’s IDEAL receives NY premiere at Americas Off Broadway at 59E59 Theaters.The world’s most famous actress is accused of murder. Six devoted fans are challenged to stand by their idol in her time of greatest need. How much will they sacrifice to protect the ideal they profess to love?

IDEAL was written in 1934, during a time of great professional turmoil in Rand’s life. At the time, her novel We the Living was rejected by a succession of publishers for being "too intellectual" and too opposed to Soviet Russia; her play Night of January 16th had not yet found a producer; and Miss Rand's meager savings were running out. IDEAL was written originally as a novelette and then extensively revised and turned into a stage play.

The cast of IDEAL includes Liz Aldefer, Jessie Barr, Ted Caine, Bill Griffin, Sean Ireland, Lee Kasper, Emily Marrow, Cara Massey, Dan Pfau, Kim Rosen, Ariana Seigel, Carly Walsh and Andrew Young. Produced by Karina Martins and Drew Vanderburg in association with FGP NYC, INC.
