Faced with the hopeless devastation of the black plague in 1300s France, a desperate monk hits upon his sacred crusade: Let them die laughing! That is, in a nutshell, the plot of Peter Barnes' utterly brilliant 1978 play, Red Noses, first produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1985. This Olivier winner is now set in modern day NYC with contemporary music.
The production stars Michael Abourizk, Galia Backal, Margaret Baker, Jessica Bathurst, Diana Benigno, Colin Buckingham, Felicia Castaldo, Christina Cornevin, Anouk Dutruit, Ava Eades, Milton Elliott*, Michael Gnat*, Dane Guiffre, James Harter*, Coutrney Knysch, Fenton Li, Nicholas Linnehan, Lisa Locascio, Karen McFarlane, Alexander Nero, Alana Osborn-Lief, Christina Pagan*, Elana Storms, Guy Ventoliere*, and Perri Yaniv*.
