Broadway World is reporting that The Extinction of Fireflies, James Andrew Walsh’s new comedy starring WOW faves Michael Urie (Ugly Betty,” Buyer & Cellar, Torch Song) and Drew Droege (Bright Colors and Bold Patters and of course those Chloë Savigny videos) is now in production on location at the playwright/director’s Shelter Island, Rhode Island home, where the play is set. Also in the cast: Olivier Award winner Tracie Bennett (End of the Rainbow, Follies) and Kario Marcel (Chicago Fire, Broad City).
The Extinction of Fireflies is set over Labor Day Weekend in coastal New England, when James (Drew Droege), a self-imagined playwright, invites longtime friend, legendary TV diva Charlotte Christian (Tracie Bennett), and occasionally-working actor Jay (Michael Urie) to read his latest dramatic effort, The Extinction of Fireflies. When Jay brings along his new (and younger) lover Callisto (Kario Marcel), the feedback is spectacular.
