The show will resurface Aug. 3 at the new MMAC — pronounced "Mack" — Theatre at 248 W. 60th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and 11th Avenue.

The current cast features "American Idol" veteran Sanjaya Malakar along with Remy Zaken, Julia Bray, Andrew Cristi, Linda Gabler, Kimiko Glenn, Mykal Kilgore and Morgan Smith.

The show, with music and lyrics by Gary Kupper and book by Kupper and Rose Caiola, opened on Oct. 1, 2010. Buddy Crutchfield directs, with choreography by Gail Pennington Crutchfield. The children's book is by actress-writer Julianne Moore.

MMAC Theatre is a brand-new Off-Broadway venue that will launch as part of the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center (MMAC). Steps away from Lincoln Center, the new 199-seat theatre "will bring great entertainment to the Upper West Side."
