News   Sam Harris to Star in Reading of Al Jolson Musical Let Me Sing
 
Sam Harris, who received Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for his role in The Life, will star as Al Jolson in an April 15 reading of the new musical Let Me Sing.

The new musical, which features Jolson standards, has a book by Sherman Yellen with new music and lyrics by Will Holt. Matt Lenz directs.

"Al Jolson struts across this sassy, irreverent musical which tells the story of his Prohibition era romance with tap dancer Ruby Keeler, and the rise, fall, and rise again of a legendary entertainer," according to press notes. "Presented as vaudeville, Let Me Sing is an honest, compelling and hugely entertaining musical about a performer and his love affair with a woman he desires and the audience whose love he craves."

Carl Pasbjerg/Alchemy Productions is the general manager. Richard Winkler produces.
