Inclusivity Statement: The hilarious and twisted Ride The Cyclone has quickly become a cult favorite amongst musical theatre aficionados, because it so beautifully focuses on the philosophical questions surrounding the human condition and the human experience – What brings us together? What do we crave the most? What are our hopes/dreams? What makes a life well-lived? This piece focuses on six multifaceted human beings who are each grappling with their diverse identities and the legacies they leave behind. Because the writers of this piece prioritized the characters’ journeys of self-discovery over determining their physical characteristics, this show allows for diverse and inclusive casting.
