Matthew Freeman's Glee Club will return to New York beginning March 3 at the Access Theater Off-Broadway.

After premiering last summer as part of the Antidepressant Festival at The Brick, the Blue Coyote Theater Group will remount the production about a high school glee club. An official opening has been set for March 6, and performances will continue through April 3.

Kyle Ancowitz directs a cast that will feature Bruce Barton, Robert Buckwalter, Steven Burns, David DelGrosso, Carter Jackson, Stephen Speights, Tom Staggs and Matthew Trumbull.

Glee Club, according to press notes, follows "eight misfit members of Romeo, Vermont’s cut-throat Glee Club. They are on the verge of meltdown after their soloist makes the disastrous decision to save his own life. Will they be ready in time for the big recital? And isn’t music the most important thing? Glee Club is a comedy about singing. Singing makes people happy."

The production features the song "The World Will Make You Smile," penned by Stephen Speights. Designing Glee Club are Robert Monaco (set design), Wheeler Kincaid (lighting design) and Jonna McElrath (costume design).

Freeman's plays include The Death of King Arthur, Reasons for Moving, Genesis, 465, The Great Escape, The Americans, The Most Wonderful Love, What To Do To A Girl, The White Swallow and When is a Clock, Trayf, An Interview with the Author and Exposition.
