Ashanti and Arden Cho shined in stunning metallic dresses and discussed what they loved about their roles in STUCK, a pop musical film set on the New York City subway, riding into theaters on Friday, April 19. Ashanti wore a low-cut metallic silver dress by Escada paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Arden Cho wore a pink metallic dress by Rebecca Taylor paired with clear strap Vince Camuto shoes.
Ashanti, Arden Cho and Michael Berry were joined on the red carpet by Berry's wife, broadway actress Sarah Uriarte Berry and actress Patten Hughes (Heirloom), Broadway actress Jessica Bogart (Rent), author of "The Shadow of Freedom" Tchicaya Missamou and STUCK crew members Mike Witherill (producer), Riley Thomas (Writer & Co-Composer), Tim Young (Executive Music Producer & Co-Composer) and Shannon Lewis (choreographer). STUCK cast member, broadway star Gerard Canonico rushed from his Broadway performance in "Be More Chill" to attend the reception that followed the screening.
Guests enjoyed delicious canapés and an open bar at the stunning Soho Crosby Street Hotel.
STUCK also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Amy Madigan, and Omar Chaparro who were unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts but sent video messages to the cast and crew to show their support.
Through the power of music, six commuters who get stuck together on a New York City subway in STUCK learn about each others very different lives, and, in turn, have a profound effect on one another, becoming a day they will never forget. Connecting across lines of race, culture and class in a way that only situations of circumstance or happenstance can create, this will be a day that none of them will ever forget. STUCK is a timely film that reminds people in our troubled times on the importance of connecting with one another and valuing others.
