Kansas City Actors Theatre has announced the cast for of Conor McPherson’s “St. Nicholas” running March 11 to 29 at the Buffalo Room in Westport.
The production features Victor Raider-Wexler with direction by Dennis Hennessy, Artistic Director of the New Theatre.
A harrowing, booze-soaked, barroom tale of theatre, obsession, and the supernatural. Conor McPherson’s “St. Nicholas” finds a washed-up theatre critic regaling the audience with the odyssey of his highs, his dregs, and how his infatuation and addiction drove him to the very limit of the supernatural and his soul.
“McPherson offers us paths to redemption in unexpected ways,” says Raider-Wexler. “Redemption, sexual obsession, and vampires… all that, and a look-you-in-the-eye format, with the considerable support of KCAT. Who would not be thrilled at the opportunity?”
“We encourage our members to bring passion projects to the table and this is a passion project for Victor,” says Artistic Chair John Rensenhouse. “As a bonus, we are thrilled that this show can be performed in a non-traditional setting, much like our notable productions in the past at the Muehlebach Funeral Home, Webster House and the World War l Museum. This is going to be great fun for our audiences.”
