It’s great to finally have NY Theater coming back to life since the Corona virus pandemic, at least Off-Broadway (Broadway will re-open Sept.16)
From the grapevine, lots of male nudity in this play. Unbelievable that this is the first fully staged performance of this play in NYC!
Lillies is one of the first indoor theater productions as the theater industry is trying to come back to life. Let us support this play!
Lilies features an all-male cast of 11 actors. Grant Hale as Jean Bilodeau; Florimond Le Goupil-Maier as Count Vallier De Tilly; Bill Morton as Countess Marie-Laure de Tilly; Drew Paton as Father St. Michael and Baron De Hue; and J.P. Ross as Lydie Anne De Rozier. Joining the cast for the Lilies Off-Broadway premiere are J.J. Miller as Simon 1952/Timothee Doucet; Hartley Parker as Simon Ducet 1912; Devon Savage as Student/Baroness De Hue; Marc Verzatt as Bishop Bilodeau; and Grant Evan and Max Richards in the ensemble.
From the press release:
Set against a backdrop of revenge, obsession, and love, Lilies tells the story of Simon Doucet, recently released from prison after serving a 30-year sentence for a crime he did not commit. He arranges a private meeting with his former school friend, Jean Bilodeau, now a powerful Bishop. Simon and his friends, all former prison inmates, revisit the harrowing events that occurred during their final year at St. Sebastian’s school for boys.
