The New Group met with the press to introduce the cast of All the Fine Boys, a new play from writer and director Erica Schmidt, featuring Abigail Breslin, Isabelle Fuhrman, Joe Tippett and Alex Wolff.
Theater Pizzazz’ Mark Ryan (MR) Anderson was present to meet the cast.
Previews begin February 14 in advance of Official Opening Night on Wednesday, March 1. A limited Off-Broadway engagement plays through March 26 at The Pershing Square Signature Center (Ford Foundation Studio Theatre, 480 West 42nd Street).
Fourteen-year-old best friends Jenny (Abigail Breslin) and Emily (Isabelle Fuhrman) are hungry for knowledge and experience, and in suburban South Carolina in the late ’80s, experience is readily found with older boys. Emily chooses her senior crush from the high school play (Alex Wolff), and Jenny, a man she’s seen at her family’s church (Joe Tippett). With parallel stories that take tricky and terrifying turns, Erica Schmidt’s All the Fine Boys dives deep into the fascinations and complications of sexual awakening and the first painful gasps of adulthood.
This production features Scenic Design by Amy Rubin, Costume Design by Tom Broecker, Lighting Design by Jeff Croiter and Sound Design by Bart Fasbender. Production Stage Manager is Jillian M. Oliver. Casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA.
