Other World, a new musical from [title of show] co-creators Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen, will receive a developmental lab this winter, according to an Equity casting notice.
Gabriel Barre will direct the lab, which features a book by Bell and music and lyrics by Bowen and Ann McNamee. The presentation is set for February 15 and 16.
The creative team also includes choreographer Tanemahuta Gray, fight director Danielle O’Dea, and musical supervisor Mary-Mitchell Campbell. Alchemy Production Group is the general manager with casting by Duncan Stewart, CSA and Paul Hardt of Stewart/Whitley.
[title of show]—the musical that, according to a fan-favorite song in the show, would rather be nine people's favorite thing than 100 people's ninth favorite thing—premiered at the Musical Theatre Festival in 2004 before playing the Vineyard Theatre in 2006 and a subsequent Broadway transfer—featuring the entire original cast (Bowen and Bell as well as co-stars Susan Blackwell and Heidi Blickenstaff).
Bell earned a Tony nomination for the book of the musical, about two guys writing a musical—about two guys writing a musical.
The four stars of [title of show] also collaborated on Now. Here. This., which premiered at the Vineyard.
