Broadway director Robert Longbottom (Side Show, The Scarlet Pimpernel) will stage Triangle, which plays this week July 26-29 at the Waterford, Connecticut venue's Rose Barn Theater.
The musical writer-composer teams of the two musicals (from more than 100 submissions) selected work for two weeks, developing their respective works with actors, directors and dramaturgs, before they are presented in readings.
Featuring a book by Joshua V. Scher, music by Curtis Moore and lyrics by Thomas Mizer, the musical finds that "the present resurrects the past and the past rescues the present in two New York stories — one set in 1911 and the other in 2001." Dale Rieling is music director.
Colin Hanlon, Stephen Bienskie, Heather Ayers, Jodie Langel, Wayne Wilcox, Megan McGinnis, Alicia Irving and David Brummel comprise the cast of Triangle.
