About the project:
Concrete Temple Theatre is casting a performer to join and participate in the development and performance of “The Waitress & The Robber,” a new play with songs. The play explores themes of technological isolation and aging in a dystopian society. Actors will be asked to sing, wear masks, and move and be part of a company with actors from Korea. You can learn more about Concrete Temple Theatre at: http://concretetempletheatre.com/new/.
It is an eleven member cast. All performers are part of the ensemble, and the ensemble dominates the action. Ensemble members than all have character roles in the play.
The Waitress & The Robber will have its world premiere in NYC. The hope is that the production will then travel to Seoul, S. Korea and other locations.
