Taylor Richardson Will Step in for Julia Garner in Upcoming Smokefall Off-Broadway
Broadway alum Taylor Richardson will now enter the womb where it happens off-Broadway. The Annie alum has joined the cast of Smokefall, replacing Julia Garner, whose schedule has shifted on two projects to which she has been long-committed. Performances will still begin on February 4 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, with opening night set for February 22. The MCC production stars Zachary Quinto, Robin Tunney, Brian Hutchison and Jon DeVries.
Richardson made her Broadway debut as Duffy in the 2012 revival of Annie and later took on the title role. Her additional credits include A Christmas Memory off-Broadway and A Most Violent Year, Annie and the upcoming Easy Living and Jack of the Red Hearts on screen.
Written by Noah Haidle, Smokefall combines magical realism and vaudeville while introducing audiences to two prenatal philosophy-swapping Twins, a dirt-eating Beauty (Richardson), a Father and Footnote (Quinto), who acts as the show’s guide.
