Adriane Lenox, Shoshana Bean, Rachel York, Emily Skinner, Kate Wetherhead, Patricia Kilgarriff and James Lloyd Reynolds will take part in the workshop, which will be directed by Schele Williams. Barbara Anselmi will be the production's musical director, and arrangements will be supplied by Jim Abbott. Piece, according to production notes, concerns Katherine Mathews, who, "upon returning to her childhood home following the passing of her mother . . . finds herself clinging to the memories of her past; watching conversations she’s had with her mother at the ages of 17, 26 and 35. In a soaring musical full of unexpected recollections, Katherine pieces together the patterns of a life filled with promise and compromise, third strikes and second chances, and always, a mother’s unconditional love."
Piece features music and lyrics by Scott Alan and a book by Tara Smith. The musical was recently part of Theatreworks' New Works Theatre Festival in Palo Alto, CA.
The creative team for the November performances includes Jeff Croiter (lighting design) and Rob Bissinger (set design) with Paul J. Smith as the stage manager.
