TONIGHT at 7:30 PM, The Rainbow Theatre Project presents the final installment of their inaugural season — a concert reading of the much-touted Off Broadway musical YANK! by brothers David and Joseph Zellnik. Co-directed by Factory 449 Producing Artistic Director Rick Hammerly and the Director of Artistic Programming at Ford’s Theatre, Patrick Pearson, with Musical direction and accompaniment by Adam Wiggins, YANK! plays at Source in D.C.
Hammerly and Pearson hand-picked some of the best up-and-coming talent from the D.C. musical theatre scene for the cast, including performers who have recently been seen on onstage at Signature Theatre, Ford’s Theatre Society, Arena Stage, Olney Theatre Center and Keegan Theatre.
YANK! features Christian Montgomery (Stu), Paul Scanlan (Mitch), Robert Mintz (Artie), Vaughn Irving (Tennessee), Kurt Boehm (Czechowski), Joshua Dick (Professor), Lou Steele (Rotelli), Aaron Bliden (Cohen), Chris Sizemore (Sarge/Scarlett), Rick Westerkamp (Melanie), Ryan Patrick Welsh (India), and Maria Egler (Louise/all females).
All of The Rainbow Theatre Project’s inaugural season readings are free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served at Source, located at 1835 14th Street, NW in Washington, D.C.
