Check out new production photos of the New York premiere of Evanston Salt Costs Climbing by Will Arbery (Corsicana, Heroes of the Fourth Turning). Previews began October 26 at The Pershing Square Signature Center in the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre where the show will officially open November 14.
Set in Evanston, Illinois where winters keep getting worse, Evanston Salt Costs Climbing follows salt truck drivers Peter and Basil who battle ice and snow and pass the time with jokes and stories. Their boss Maiworm has noble visions of new green technology that would make their jobs obsolete, but there may be a more terrifying warning calling out from under the roads.
Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined, Mary Seacole), Jeb Kreager (Mare of Easttown, Heroes of the Fourth Turning), Ken Leung (Industry, Lost), and Rachel Sachnoff (Evanston Salt Costs Climbing at White Heron Theatre) star under the direction of Danya Taymor.
The production features scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Sarafina Bush, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, sound design by Mikaal Sulaiman, voice and text coaching by Gigi Buffington, and casting by Judy Henderson.
The production stage manager is Rachel Denise April, and the assistant stage manager is Stephen Varnado.
