"Angel of Arkansas" Industry Presentation

Nic recently took part in an Industry Presentation of the new musical Angel of Arkansas, with a book, music, and lyrics by Richard Oberacker and a book and lyrics by Robert Taylor. Directed by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman, the presentation took place February 23 at Perelman Performing Arts Center. The new work centers on a real-life single mother who became an advocate, activist, and caregiver to AIDS patients in conservative Arkansas in the '80s.

The cast starred Kerry Butler as Ruth Coker Burks, with an ensemble company featuring Andy Mientus, Mauricio Martínez, Josh Strickland, Dudney Joseph Jr, Nic Rouleau, James Harkness, Sam Simahk, Jacob Keith Watson, Shavey Brown, Joel Waggoner, Bud Weber, Nicholas Rodriguez, and John Michaelangelo Kraus.

The creative team included music director Annbritt duChateau, vocal designer Ann Marie Milazzo, sound designer John Shivers, and score supervisor Jacob Fjeldheim. Live Wire Theatrical is serving as general manager.
