Theatre Nova opens world premiere “Doctor Moloch” July 12

Show Announcement July 04, 2024

Theatre NOVA, Ann Arbor’s resident nonprofit professional theatre, announces the world  premiere of  Doctor Moloch by Carla Milarch. The production runs July 12- August 4, 2024.

It’s 2029, and tech startup VitalAI is about to launch the first humanoid robot doctor, capable of personalized medicines and single-cell cancer detection. There’s only one problem: the good doctor has no empathy. When actress Serena Blaise arrives to teach him how to “be human,” she gets much more than she bargained for.

The play is directed by Briana O’Neal, and features Shelby Bradley, Louie Chen, and Artun Kircali. The production and design team includes scenic designer Paul Taylor, lighting designer Jeff Alder, costume designer Marley Boone, sound designer Kennikki Jones-Jones, assistant director Mady Thetard, and properties designer/ stage manager Carolyn Pierce.

Theatre NOVA is located at 410 W Huron St, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Performances are on  Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.


General admission tickets for plays are $28. Theatre NOVA continues to make theatre accessible by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for those who need them. The general public may purchase tickets, memberships, flex passes, and subscriptions online at  www.TheatreNOVA.org. Tickets may also be purchased in person one hour before each performance. Seating in the theatre will begin 30 minutes before each performance.
