A June/July release is expected. The new musical features book and lyrics by Stephen Cole and music by David Krane, based on an actual adventure.

Phillip George (Forbidden Broadway) directed with choreography by Bob Richard (Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!) and musical direction by David Caldwell (Children of Eden). The five-member cast comprised James Beaman (Spamalot, national tour) as Michael, Keith Gerchak (Finding Nemo, The Musical) as Jeffrey, Bill Nolte (La Cage aux Folles) as Mansour, Sarah Stiles (Avenue Q) as Nazirah and Bruce Warren (The Wizard of Oz) as Farid.

The Road to Qatar!, according to the York, is a "new true musical comedy about two American musical theatre writers commissioned to write a larger-than-life Broadway-style musical for the Emir of Qatar. Surprises abound as the self-professed 'short Jewish writers' soon find themselves traveling the globe in their own version of a madcap Bob Hope/Bing Crosby adventure."

The creative team also included Michael Bottari & Ronald Case  (set, costume and puppet design), Martin Vreeland (lights) and Chris Kateff (projections). 

The musical was produced by special arrangement with Paul Burchett in association with Coltrane, LLC.
