A blizzard strands guests at a not-so-cozy guest house in the new musical, Bed No Breakfast, getting its world premiere in January 2008 by The Kitchen Theatre Company in Ithaca, NY.

This is the latest (and fourth) collaboration of lyricist-librettist Rachel Lampert and composer Larry Pressgrove (known as musical director of the cult hit [title of show]).

KTC artistic director Lampert directs the work at KTC's 73-seat home. Performances play Jan. 17-Feb. 10, 2008. Official opening is Jan. 19.

According to KTC, "In Bed No Breakfast, six people are waylaid by a blizzard in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and seek shelter at the UP B&B — a bed and breakfast probably not found on the list of best cozy and quaint places to stay. The owner would prefer no guests at all and was certainly not expecting so many this particular night. And what a group it is! Compounding the lack of camaraderie of the group is the lack of comforts of the inn. How long can strangers wait out a storm outside before a storm erupts inside?"

The cast features Brett Bossard, Jessica Carr, Jessica Flood, Dan Kiely, Tony Simionea and Erica Steinhagen.

The show is the latest musical by the creative team of Lampert (book & lyrics) and Pressgrove (music). Their previous musicals are Tony and the Soprano, Comfort Food and The Angle of the Sun. Richard Montgomery is the music director. The creative team also includes scenic designer Steve TenEyck, lighting designer Brian Prather, costume designer Hannah Kochman and stage manager Stephen A. Wagner.
