ATC artistic director David Ira Goldstein will direct the musical that has music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and a Tony-nominated book by Hunter Bell. [title of show] will run through Feb. 13, 2010, prior to playing Phoenix, AZ, Feb. 18-March 7, 2010. The cast will feature Stanley Bahorek (Spelling Bee, Inventing Avi) as Hunter, Sal Sabella (Kristina, Phantom of the Opera) as Jeff, Lauren Lebowitz (Footloose) as Susan and Kelly McCormick (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) as Heidi.
According to ATC, "[title of show] is a dizzy, unpredictable, and uproarious tongue-in-cheek musical about show business and making one's dreams come true. Follow Jeff, Hunter, Heidi and Susan as they negotiate a musical theatre obstacle course of finding backers, casting singers, and making it to Broadway."
Patricia Wilcox will choreograph the production that has musical direction by Christopher McGovern, scenic design by John Ezell, costume design by Kish Finnegan, lighting design by Michael Gilliam and sound design by Abe Jacob.
The Tony-nominated little-musical-that-could premiered Off-Broadway in 2006 and made the move uptown to Broadway's Lyceum Theatre for a brief run in 2008. A cast album preserves the score.
