OBIE-winning theater company Hoi Polloi collaborates with venerable actress Lelia Goldoni, a pairing that began after Goldoni saw Hoi Polloi’s stage adaptation of John Cassavetes’ Shadows, the 1959 film that made her a fundamental figure in the birth of American independent cinema. The production includes Footfalls, Rockaby and the radio play Cascando, with scenic design by OBIE-winner Mimi Lien, costume design by Oana Botez, lighting design by Yi Zhao and music by Steven Leffue.
