The private reading will take place March 27 at Pearl Studios in New York. The cast also includes Eric William Morris (Mamma Mia!), Liz Larsen (A Most Happy Fella), John Hillner (La Cage Aux Folles), Jessica Boevers (A Funny Thing Happened…), Alma Cuervo, Joy Franz and Allen Read.

Davie will play Jenny Wilson, a shy Manhattan gal who is invited on to a television quiz show along with married school teacher and Korea vet, Brian Stanley. Sponsored by a large cigarette company, the popular show provides everyday, regular folks the possibility of winning $100,000. According to press notes, "The musical chronicles their initial enchantment with the show and the fame bestowed upon them until... they find out all is not as it seems to be. While comically satirizing America in the 50’s with lavish production numbers and commercial jingles, Galactic Cigarettes Presents: It’s Your World also poses a Faustian moral dilemma: How far will decent, hardworking, honest people go to win a piece of the American Dream?"

The book and lyrics are written by Paul Eiseman and the music is composed by Adam B. Levowitz. Musical direction is by Fred Lassen and casting by Cindi Rush Casting.
