Company member Alexander Strain is among the prestigious DC actors cast in Forum Theatre's revival of the Tony Award-winning Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. In addition to Strain, who plays Louis, the ensemble features Helen Hayes Award-winners Jennifer Mendenhall as Hannah and Nanna Ingvarsson as The Angel, along with Helen Hayes nominees Karl Miller as Prior and Jim Jorgensen as Roy Cohn. Casie Platt as Harper, Daniel Eichner as Joe, and Ro Boddie as Belize round out the cast.
"Everyone at Forum is thrilled to have such an amazing group of actors for this project," artistic director Michael Dove says. "I'm excited they are able to join us over this huge journey of a play, and I think DC audiences will enjoy seeing some of their favorite actors in these great roles."
Other cast members have drawn acclaim for roles throughout DC. Miller was featured in Signature Theatre's The Lieutenant of Inishmore (directed by Jeremy Skidmore), Mendenhall is a Kushner veteran from the Theater J and Woolly Mammoth co-production of Homebody/Kabul and a frequent Skidmore collaborator, and Eichner earned national attention in Washington Shakespeare Company's Macbeth.
Meanwhile, Boddie, a recent graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts, makes his DC debut.
