OOHRAH! Reports for Duty at Atlantic Stage Two Debut

http://www.broadway.com/buzz/oohrah-reports-duty-atlantic-stage/

Jennifer Mudge stars in the world premiere of Bekah Brunstetter’s play OOHRAH!, presented by the Atlantic Theater Company (Neil Pepe, Artistic Director; Jeffory Lawson, Managing Director).  Directed by Evan Cabnet, OOHRAH! also features Cassie Beck, Sami Gayle, Darren Goldstein, J.R. Horne, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe and Maximilian Osinski.

Jennifer Mudge recently appeared on Broadway in Roundabout’s The Philanthropist.  She’s also performed on Broadway in Reckless and Off-Broadway in Dutchman (Cherry Lane, ’07 Drama Desk Nom.); Fault Lines (Naked Angels), Geometry of Fire and The Pavilion (Rattlestick); and The Stendhal Syndrome (Primary Stages). Her regional work includes turns at the Geffen Playhouse (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Williamstown, Arena, Bay Street, CATF, Trinity Rep, and New York Stage & Film.

In Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to one of the South’s largest military bases, practically everybody has somebody “Over There.” Sara is relieved when her husband Ron returns home from an uneventful tour in Iraq, but he’s finding it difficult to settle back into the domestic bliss that is “home improvement” and “Rachael Ray’s 30-minute meals.” Sara’s sister Abby has set herself up for an uneventful life with a civilian fiancé who’s more interested in PlayStation than the battlefield. But when a hot, mysterious Marine walks into their lives, all bets on stability are off.

The design team for OOHRAH! features scenic designer Lee Savage, costume designer Jessica Wegener, lighting designer Tyler Micoleau, and sound designer The Broken Chord Collective.

ATLANTIC STAGE 2 is located at 330 West 16th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues).  Tickets are $45 and available by calling Ticket Central at 212-279-4200 (ticketcentral.com).
