Tony winner Duncan Sheik and Tony nominee Kyle Jarrow's Noir began previews at Houston's Alley Theatre June 2. The world premiere of the new musical will officially open June 9 and continue through July 3.
The Broadway alums Christy Altomare (Anastasia, Mamma Mia!) as Scarlet, Adam Kantor (The Band's Visit, Fiddler on the Roof) as The Neighbor, and Morgan Marcell (Hamilton, Moulin Rouge! The Musical!) as The Wife with David Guzman (Hamilton) as The Husband, Clifton Samuels (Follies) as The Boss, and Voltaire Wade-Greene (Hamilton) as The Goon. Sinclair Daniel plays The Kid.
The musical brings the noir film genre to the stage with the story of a heartbroken man turned recluse who finds comfort in his radio until his new neighbors, a couple, move into the apartment next door. Sheik and Jarrow previously collaborated on Whisper House, which ran Off-Broadway earlier this year.
Darko Tresnjak (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder) directs the production, which features choreography by Karla Puno Garcia (tick, tick...BOOM!), scenic design by Alexander Dodge (Anastasia), costume design by Linda Cho (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder), lighting design by Philip Rosenberg, sound design by Dan Moses Schreier (West Side Story), projection design by Aaron Rhyne (Anastasia), fight direction and intimacy coordination by Adam Noble, stage management by Linda Marvel, and assistant stage management by Trey Johnson and Jordan Canon-Kruis. Vocal arrangements are by music director Jason Hart.
