The cast of the 3 PM reading features Laura Marie Duncan (South Pacific), Autumn Hurlbert (Legally Blonde), Anika Larsen (Avenue Q), David Larsen (Billy Elliot), Rob Richardson (A Tale of Two Cities), Laura Shoop (Fiddler on the Roof) and Don Stephenson (The Producers).
Based on the short story "Me and the Girls" by Noël Coward, Exit Music features music by James Merillat, lyrics by Dick Pasqual and a book by Pasqual and Merillat.
"In the years before World War II," press notes state, "a fictional song-and-dance troupe, 'George Banks and the Bombshells,' toured throughout Western Europe. George reflects upon his time with the group and with his one long-term lover while staying at a hospice in the Alps. Based on one of the only Coward stories to feature an openly gay protagonist, Exit Music examines the complicated life of a performer in this witty and heartfelt original musical."
