The 7 PM performances will feature the music direction of Jeff Cubeta. Cubeta and Christopher Denny will provide arrangements.

Cast of Thousands will include selections from Is There Life After High School?, Working and Three Postcards, as well as new material from Actor, Lawyer, Indian Chief and contemporary favorites including "Flight" and "Life on Earth."

According to press notes, the show "weaves a rich tapestry of song, as Gillett enacts the lives of the thousands of people with whom we interact every day, but may never come to know. Now, 15 years after it was first performed, Gillett returns to the material that inspired his first songbook collaboration, in an evening that explores not only songs from the original production, but also new material written by Carnelia in the intervening years."

Don't Tell Mama is located at 343 West 46th Street. There is a $20 music charge and a two-drink minimum (cash only). For reservations, call (212) 757-0788 after 4 PM or visit donttellmama.com.
