Atlantic Theater Company celebrated its new musical The Bedwetter May 23, the original date of its official opening. The production, which began previews April 30, will now officially open June 7 at the Linda Gross Theater. The recently extended run will continue through June 26.
The Bedwetter is based on comedian and Emmy winner Sarah Silverman's bestselling memoir of the same name about Sarah, a funny 10-year-old with a secret that's not so secret if you read the title. The stage adaptation features a book by Drama Desk winner Joshua Harmon and Silverman, with lyrics by Silverman and Emmy winner Adam Schlesinger, who also composed the music.
Featured in the cast are Caissie Levy (Caroline, or Change, Frozen) as Beth Ann, Tony winner Bebe Neuwirth (Chicago) as Nana, Ashley Blanchet (Waitress) as Miss New Hampshire, Rick Crom (HBO’s Divorce) as Dr. Grimm/Dr. Riley, Zoe Glick (Frozen) as Sarah, Darren Goldstein (The Little Foxes) as Donald, and Ellyn Marie Marsh (The Rose Tattoo) as Mrs. Dembo. Making Off-Broadway debuts are Charlotte MacLeod as Abby, Charlotte Elizabeth Curtis as Ally, Margot Weintraub as Amy, and Emily Zimmerman as Laura.
The company is rounded out by understudies Elizabeth Ward Land, Lauren Marcus, George Merrick, Charlie Tassone, and Annabelle Wachtel.
Lucille Lortel winner Anne Kauffman is at the helm, working alongside choreographer Byron Easley, creative consultant David Yazbek (The Band's Visit), scenic designer Laura Jellinek, costume designer Kaye Voice, lighting designer Japhy Weideman, sound designer Kai Harada, projection designer Lucy Mackinnon, music director Henry Aronson, music supervisor and coordinator Dean Sharenow, hair and wig designer Tom Watson, and production stage manager Richard A.
