AND NOW… -A Nicholas for Nicholas Nickleby!

We had to interrupt our regularly scheduled blog this week for an exciting announcement. The role of Nicholas Nickleby has been cast! We are thrilled to announce that JUSTIN ADAMS, last seen at PRC as Mercutio, will return to perform in the title role. 

Of his performance in PRC’s Romeo and Juliet, The Independent Weekly’s Kate Dobbs Ariail had this to say:
“Mercutio may be the best role in the play, and Justin Adams displays greater intelligence and humor than you often see and an unexpected delicacy. He swaggers cheerfully in his snug red pants; his barbs and challenges could be jokes.”

While we are still pending the most updated bio from Justin (the agreement was literally settled on Monday), here is the latest one I found online. This is taken from the Alliance’s production of Eurydice last year. Additionally, here’s a photo of Justin from that show along with the show’s title actress, Melinda Helfrich. The photo is by Greg Mooney.
