‘Coram’ gets cast

Brit play opens on May 2

Jan Maxwell (“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”), Bill Camp (“Heartbreak House”) and Dashiell Eaves (“The Lieutenant of Inishmore”) are among the gigantic 40-person cast of U.K. import “Coram Boy,” opening at the Imperial May 2.

“Boy” won rapturous reviews at the National Theater in London and is currently playing on the West End. Show will be the latest National product to move to Broadway under the auspices of Boyett Ostar Prods.; the most recent teamup between the two orgs was “The History Boys,” which won six Tonys last year.

Adapted from Jamila Gavin’s young adult novel by Helen Edmundson, play follows two boys — one rescued from an African slave ship and one the abandoned heir to a fortune — in grim 18th century London. Melly Still directs the production, which includes an onstage choir.
