Directed by Nick Brennan with musical direction by Ferdy Tumakaka, the 7 PM reading will feature the talents of Chris Hoch (La Cage Aux Folles, Shrek), Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones, Xanadu), Kristy Cates (Wicked), Christopher Kale Jones (Jersey Boys), Jenna Coker-Jones (Little Shop of Horrors) and Miles Aubrey (Jersey Boys).
There's Something I Need to Tell You features book and lyrics by Robert Stroizer and music and lyrics by Barbara Hustedt.
The musical, according to press notes, "follows six Manhattan singles on their adventures to find the perfect mate, or at least the perfect person to spend the night with. Well fortified by a couple of drinks, Barry (Chris Hoch) is dragging his feet en route to discussing living together with a longtime girlfriend, and he pauses in front of a Broadway theater to eye an attractive woman who’s clearly meeting someone else (Patti Murin). He takes it upon himself to become that 'someone else' and will play the role for as long as he can. Once Barry has set his wacky plan in motion the complications in this modern-day Midsummer Night's Dream just keep multiplying as the six New York singles doggedly look for—or look to avoid—love."
