Hannah Ford Joins White Noise Cast

Hannah Ford has joined the musical cast for White Noise, which will begin a 16-week run at The Royal George Theatre in Chicago, IL

 

 

 

White Noise is produced by Whoopi Golbnerg, Holly Way, Jay Strommen, and Tom Leonardis.

White Noise is a provocative new rock musical that follows a pair of sisters who are discovered by a powerful record producer, and groomed into a well-packaged rock/pop band, which mixes irresistible harmonies with coded rhetoric into chart-blazing hits. Inspired by real life, White Noise fuses today’s headlines and blogs into a cautionary tale that challenges conventional notions of free speech, media and the power of pop culture.

Directed and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo, whose recent Broadway credits include Jersey Boys (2006 Tony Award and 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical), Next to Normal (Pulitzer Prize for Drama), Memphis (2010 Tony Award for Best Musical), The Addams Family; Guys and Dolls and All Shook Up, White Noise features a book by Matte O’Brien and music and lyrics by Robert Morris, Steven Morris and Joe Shane. White Noise was originally conceived by Ryan J. Davis with a story and characters by Joe Drymala.

Producer Whoopi Goldberg comments, “White Noise smacks you in a challenging, emotional and entertaining way. The producing team looks forward to bring this unflinchingly honest new production to Chicago where audiences are sophisticated, aware and open to a musical that will certainly remind them of today’s headlines and might awaken a new awareness of current social issues.”

White Noise had an early developmental production in the 2006 NY Musical Theatre Festival, and then was fully re-developed and went on to a critically-acclaimed and sold-out engagement at New Orleans’ Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre in July 2009.
