Performances begin May 18 for Presto Change-O, Joel Waggoner and Eric Price's new musical about three generations of magicians living under one roof. Helmed by Marc Bruni of Broadway's Beautiful The Carole King Musical with choreography by Chris Bailey, the world-premiere production features real magic.

Presto Change-O is set to officially open May 25 for an engagement scheduled to play through June 11.

The cast features Tony winner Michael Rupert (Falsettos, On The Town), Tony nominee Jarrod Spector (Beautiful The Carole King Musical), Jenni Barber (Wicked), Tony nominee Barbara Walsh (Company), Lenny Wolpe (The Drowsy Chaperone, Wicked) and Bob Walton (42nd Street).

“This new musical tells the story of three generations of magicians who find themselves under one roof for the first time in years,” state BSC production notes. “When the grandfather patriarch starts causing real magic to happen, they must confront their past mistakes and re-examine what it means to be a family.”

The creative team includes Joseph Wartnerchaney (illusion designer), Vadim Feichtner (music director), Derek McLane (set designer), Alejo Vietti (costume designer), Ken Billington (lighting designer), Brad Berridge (sound designer), Michael Andrew Rodgers (production stage manager) and Heather Klein (assistant stage manager).
