Asolo Rep Announces Casting for the World Premiere Musical KNOXVILLE

Arts & Culture

Asolo Repertory Theatre proudly announces full casting for the world premiere of the new musical KNOXVILLE. The project reunites Frank Galati, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the Tony Award ® -winning creative team behind Broadway’s Ragtime. Galati, an Asolo Rep Associate Artist, also directs the production. KNOXVILLE began previews on April 15, opens on April 23, and runs through May 11, in the Mertz Theatre, located in the FSU Center for the Performing Arts. The world premiere of KNOXVILLE is made possible by a generous grant from The Roy CockrumFoundation.

Based on James Agee’s autobiographical, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Death in the Family, the story begins as Agee struggles to write his greatest work – about the event that touched his young life and the effect it had on his mother, his town and his own future. A powerful illumination of the forces that shape who we are, KNOXVILLE is a universal coming-of-age story about family, faith and love –and about the boy who will grow up to write it. With a sweeping musical score and an extraordinary creative team and cast, this moving and innovative world premiere is a must-see event.
