Perseverance Theatre continues Anchorage season with 'Bigfoot'

Perseverance Theatre will continue its second season of plays in Anchorage with “Bigfoot and Other Lost Souls,” opening Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. The show, which runs through Feb. 3, had its world premiere in Juneau, opening on May 4, 2012.

This season’s Anchorage plays began with “Of Mice and Men,” which ran Oct. 26 through Nov. 4, and will close with Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” scheduled for April 12-21.

Perseverance began performing a season of plays in Anchorage last year as a resident company in the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, an expansion that reflects its mission to create professional theater by and for Alaskans.

“Bigfoot” features music and lyrics by Tony-award winning composer Mark Hollmann, who won a Tony Award for the music and lyrics for Broadway’s “Urinetown: The Musical” and developed “Yeast Nation” with Greg Kotis. Directed by New York artist Elizabeth Lucas, this production features Anchorage actor Eric Cover and, returning from New York City, UAA graduate Luke Bartholomew, making his Perseverance debut. Other actors include Ryan Curley, Jerry Demmert, Patricia Hull, Heidi Poet, Erika Rothchild, and Rick Silaj, Rachel Landon and Enrique Bravo. The design team includes Art Rotch (lighting design), Akiko Nishijima Rotch (set design), Rory Stitt (sound design) and Christina Rumery (costume design), and music direction by Steven Gross and Rob Cohen.
