News   PHOTO CALL: Morton Is Caligula for Musical Readings in NYC
 
Euan Morton starred in the title role in readings of the new musical Caligula at New World Stages in Manhattan.

Chris Presley directed the invite-only presentations of the work that features a book and score by Eric Svejcar. Musical direction was by David Andrews Rogers. Morton appeared in a cast that also featured Autumn Hurlbert, Matt Bogart and Anastasia Barzee.

Caligula "is placed in an ancient rock-and-roll theatre somewhere between the years 41 and 1973 (or perhaps both simultaneously)," as press notes read. "This particular ancient theatre just happens to somehow have electricity, a bitchin' sound system, a light show, a rock band, and costumes more in the world of Ziggy Stardust than Julius Caesar. History's most notorious tyrant takes the audience on a musical journey of murder, sensuality, heartbreak, world domination, immortality, and absurdly unmitigated ego."

Here are photos from the Caligula reading:
