Diversionary Theatre announced complete casting for its production of Birds of a Feather, an LGPT comedy about family by Marc Acito and directed by James Vásquez. Performances begin at Diversionary Theatre (4545 Park Blvd San Diego, CA 92116) on January 31.
The cast includes Steve Gunderson as Roy/Pale Male, Kevin Koppman-Gue as Birdwatcher, Mike Sears as Silo/Lola and Rachael VanWormer as Zookeeper.
Birds of a Feather is a smart and surprisingly human comedy about two bird families - a pair of male penguins at the Central Park Zoo who hatch and adopt a chick and two hawks living and raising their own brood on a Central Park rooftop. Based on the true events that inspired the famously banned children's book, And Tango Makes Three, and which kept all of New York City looking up at a luxury apartment building in rapt fascination, families of every breed - whether in captivity or in their natural habitat, conventional or not, gay or straight - are celebrated in this heart-warming play. Audiences will surely be atwitter with laughter, but really what's new at the zoo is the wildly uplifting exploration of psychology, zoology and what it is that truly defines a family.
The creative team for Diversionary Theatre's production of Birds of a Feather includes Sean Fanning (Scenic Design), Michelle Caron (Lighting Design), Kevin Anthenill (Sound Design), Jeannie Galioto (Costume Design), David Medina (Prop Master), Bret Young(Producer) and John E. Alexander (Executive Director).
Previews begin January 31 with an official opening of February 9. The production is scheduled to run through March 3. Tickets are now available online at www.diversionary.org, by calling619-220-0097 or by visiting 4545 Park Boulevard San Diego, CA 92116. Single ticket prices ranges from $25-51 (Prices are subject to change).
