PHOTO CALL: Tony Nominee Metwally Tells Off-Broadway of the Beast on
The Moon at Opening
By Morgan Allen

Actor Omar Metwally, Tony nominated last year for his performance in
the short-lived Sixteen Wounded, stars with Louis Zorich in the
Off-Broadway premiere of the award-winning play Beast on The Moon,
which celebrated its opening night on April 27.

Richard Kalinoski's play about the Armenian genocide has been seen
around the world and in several languages before landing at New York
City's Century Center for the Performing Arts.

At left, Metwally is seen with Tony Award winner Donna Murphy, and
director Larry Moss and Kalinoski are seen at the opening night party
for Beast on The Moon at Candela Restaurant on East 16th in downtown
Manhattan. Below, the cast gives their opening night curtain call at
