What People Are Saying
"I’m quite excited to get behind Cissel’s new play MUST,” says Mr. Willis. “It looks at Billy the Kid through a unique eye. It’s a character study, with the exhilarating landscape of New Mexico as a backdrop.” Director Gabriel Vega Weissman elaborates that “MUST is a play about human nature, mortality, fate and purpose. I think Charles has written a play that speaks to some of our deepest fears. He navigates this story of Billy the Kid one of American history’s most notorious figures, with gestures to Cormac McCarthy, playwrights such as Shepard, Beckett and Lorca and the feeling of a classic western like High Noon or The Searchers. The play is matched with an extraordinary cast and design team. We can’t wait to bring it to New York audiences.”
Mr. Fred Zollo (Tony-award winning producer of Once, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?, Private Lives, Angels in America) assisted in the development of MUST. “Charles is a striking new voice in the American theater,” he said.
