Hilsabeck, Fisher and Barnhardt to Read I Love You, Madame President for NYMF

News   Hilsabeck, Fisher and Barnhardt to Read I Love You, Madame President for NYMF Hillary Clinton may be out of the current race to the White House, but the first female President of the United States will take to the stage in the New York Musical Theatre Festival's reading of I Love You, Madame President Sept. 26.

Part of NYMF's Developmental series, the 1 and 4:30 PM readings will be held at the 45th Street Theatre. Matthew Hamel directs.

Featuring music and lyrics by Phyllis Lynd and a book by Phyllis Lynd and Martha Kearns, Madame President has additional dialogue by Soir Aniroc and Scott Tobin.

Rick Hilsabeck (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Kate Fisher (Les Misérabes) and Scott Barnhardt (Big River) will lead a cast that also features Jerry Coyle (Room Service), Ric Ryder (Blood Brothers), Christine Rowan and Elizabeth Polito (Beauty and the Beast).

Press notes for the NYMF presentation read: "Judith Carlin is the first female President of the United States. Her husband Dan is the first First Gentleman. Will the first Firsts persevere through thick and thin, sickness and health, Oval Office incest and garbage-slinging gubernatorials? See how the votes add up in this new musical comedy that takes a good hard look at the ins and outs of politics - in and out of the bedroom."
