News Across the River: World Premiere of Miranda from Stormville at IRT Theater

Random Access Theatre opens its 2019 season with the World Premiere of Miranda from Stormville by Adam Bertocci. The production, a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, runs March 14 – 24 at the IRT Theater in the West Village. Artistic Director and co-founder, Jennifer Sandella directs. Bertocci’s previous productions include the highly acclaimed, Two Gentlemen of Lebowski (published by Simon & Schuster). Miranda from Stormville is part of IRT’s 3B Development Series. 

In small town New Jersey, somewhere off the Garden State Parkway, a great storm is raging. But inside their little house, Miranda Milano watches the once magical energy drain from her Pops eyes. Their dormant life is shocked awake by the arrival of two young men, stranded by car trouble, who cause a shift in the fabric of the family’s life. But is their random arrival actually random at all? 

Miranda from Stormville asks: how do we escape circumstances we can’t avoid? How do we continue on when hope is lost? Just miles outside New York City, Miranda’s rural America may as well be a stranded island: is she destined to only experience life through the books she constantly devours? Or does her ailing father, with his self-professed powers, and a caretaker with a flair for the dramatic have bigger plans in store?

The cast features Anna Cain (The Coward/FringeNYC), Brendan Cataldo (All My Love, Kate/Fresh Fruit Festival, Wild Project), James A Pierce III (ANASTASIA, The Lion King/Broadway), Mackenzie Menter (Romeo and Juliet/Hudson Shakespeare Company), Gabe Templin (Drunk Texts/Random Access Theatre), and Richard Wayne (The Pajama Game/ Boston Conservatory).

The creative team includes set design by Roni Sipp, sound design by Tony Lepore, and stage management by Addison Herndon. Victoria Teague serves as dramaturg, marketing director and producing associate, Mike Gregorek new media director and producing associate.
