News   Musical Reading About Devil's Take On the Bible Will Star Jackie Burns and Billy Elliot Tony Winner
 
Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot star Trent Kowalik and If/Then's Jackie Burns will take part in private New York City presentations of the new musical Lucifer by writers Michael Mott and Mike Squillante.

Mott (Where the Sky Ends, Faustus) and singer/songwriter Mike Squillante (NBC's "The Voice") are collaborating on the score with book writer Corey Skaggs ("Mob Wife"). The musical is depicted as "the story of the Bible according to the Devil."

Kowalik, one of the three original young stars to win a joint Tony Award for Billy Elliot, will play Gabe with Burns (If/Then, Wicked) as Lucy. The cast will also include T. Oliver Reid (Sister Act, Peter Pan Live!) as Raff, Mitchell Jarvis (Rock of Ages, The UnCivil War) as Jay, Angela Billman (The Summerland Project) as Pam and Charlie Brady (South Pacific) as Mike.

Presentations are set for October.

Here's how the creators bill the musical: "With the looming deadline quickly approaching, The Boss assesses that a crucial element is missing. One particularly cunning angel comes up with a game-changing solution: humans. Betrayal and obsession take hold leading this angel down an iconic path to their own personal Hell."

Gregg Wiggans will direct the project that is produced by Jesse Murphy ("The Summerland Project," "Delinquent") for TopRat Productions. The show has orchestrations by Kim Scharnberg. James Raby is executive producer.
