Lolita Foster of Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) and Broadway veteran Count Stovall lead a multi-ethnic production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Obie winner and Tony Nominee, Johanna Day, directs.

NEW YORK CITY - Casting is now complete for Quick Silver Theater Company (QST) and Classics in Color’s (CIC) co-production of PROOF. Broadway veteran Count Stovall will play Robert. Lolita Foster (OITNB) will play Catherine. Nafeesa Monroe, co-producer of PROOF, will play Claire. Alejandro Rodriguez, QST core company member, will play Hal. Johanna Day – OBIE winner and Tony nominated for role in Broadway's PROOF - will make her directorial debut with this production.

QST intends to reveal a new perspective of this Pulitzer Prize winning play. Without altering the text in any way and casting PROOF with actors of color, a conversation is generated that speaks to the issues of gender and racial privilege in global mathematics programs.

Catherine, a young woman relegated to caring for her father who suffers from mental illness, doubts her own sanity when faced with questions surrounding a mathematical proof discovered in her possession. Has she inherited her father’s mathematical genius as well as his mental instability? All is brought to light in this sexy and intriguing mathematical journey.

The all-female creative team includes costume designer Karen Perry, lighting designer Jennifer Reiser set designer Perrine Villemur and sound designer Iman Hinton.

Founded by Nefessa Monroe, Classics in Color is a theatre company committed to representing all colors on stage, especially in the classics. Through its work the company hopes to demystify the classics and create accessible theatre to which we all can relate. CIC wants all people to be able to see themselves on stage; to feel included.

The mission of Quick Silver Theater Company is to produce theater that invigorates, educates and generates conversations. QST will cast its productions with actors that reflect the community at large. In doing so, the playwright’s work will, in turn, connect with a much larger and more diverse audience. Quick Silver Theater Company was founded by Tyrone Mitchell Henderson and Lizan Mitchell. It is an ensemble company of thirteen theater artists based in the NYC Metro area.

For more information about the QST and CIC production of PROOF, contact Tyrone Henderson at (646) 505-8385 or info@quicksilvertheater.com. Or visit the websites of either theater company: www.quicksilvertheater.com and www.classicsincolor.com.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode.
