Part of the 2011 New Works Readings and Concerts Series, which is overseen by artistic director John Simpkins, the reading will feature the talents of Michael Winther (33 Variations, Songs from an Unmade Bed) and Farah Alvin (Nine, The Marvelous Wonderettes). Jeremy Dobrish directs.
Loving Leo has book and lyrics by Sara Cooper and music by Zach Redler. The musical, according to press notes, concerns a "childless middle-aged couple (Lena and David) [who have] lived comfortably in their one-bedroom apartment in the Bronx for their entire marriage. But after the death of Lena's mother, the couple takes in Lena's distant stepfather Leo, and suddenly the little cracks in their marriage become huge, gaping holes.”
Admission is $5, and no advance reservation is necessary. For more information on the TriArts summer readings and concert series or its mainstage productions and other events, visit www.triarts.net or call (860) 364-SHOW (7469).
