Tonight, I’m off to the benefit opening night performance of the Red Bull Theater’s Off-Broadway production of The Witch of Edmonton, at the Theatre at St. Clement’s, 423 W. 46th St. in New York.

Helmed by Jesse Berger, the new production of this rarely performed Jacobean play by Thomas Dekker, John Ford and William Rowley features Craig Baldwin, Justin Blanchard, André De Shields, Adam W. Green, Christopher Innvar, Carman Lacivita, Christopher McCann, Christina Pumariega, Amanda Quaid, Everett Quinton, Miriam Silverman, Derek Smith, Sam Tsoutsouvas, Raphael Nash Thompson, and Charlayne Woodard.

The Witch of Edmonton rips open the dark underbelly of a small town with humor and pathos, as the lives of its inhabitants intersect in strange and spellbinding ways, and the power of a community for both good and for evil is revealed.

The Witch of Edmonton production team includes set design by Anka Lupes, costume design by Cait O’Connor, lighting design by Peter West, original music by Daniel Levy, sound design by Elizabeth Rhodes, special effects by Jessica Scott, projections by Dan Scully, hair & make-up design by Erin Kennedy Lunsford, choreography by Tracy Bersley, aerial effects by Paul Rubin, and stage violence by Rick Sordelet.
