Gary Griffin directs the musical that was penned by Michael Friedman (music and lyrics), John Dempsey and Rinne Groff (book and lyrics). Choreography is by Sergio Trujillo. Keenan-Bolger is joined onstage by John Dossett, Julia Murney, Mary Faber, Josh Breckenridge, Juliana Ashley Hansen, Curtis Holbrook, Van Hughes, Jason Michael Snow, Morgan Weed, Aaron Tveit, Emily Walton and Daniel Zaitchik.
"In Saved, good girl Mary (Keenan-Bolger) and her domineering best friend Hilary Faye (Faber) are starting their senior year at the top of the social food chain at American Eagle Christian High School — that is, until Mary's boyfriend (Tveit) tells her he thinks he's gay," as show notes reveal. "When Jesus appears in a vision, and Mary heeds his message 'to do everything she can to help him,' her good deeds are met with dire consequences, and Mary is forced to question everything she's ever believed. Through it all, she finds faith in unexpected places and learns what it truly means to be saved."
Here is a first glimpse at the new musical:
