Highlights From Rupert Holmes' Secondhand Lions in Seattle

The world-premiere staging of Secondhand Lions features Tony Award nominees Gregg Edelman (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, City of Angels) and Mark Jacoby (Ragtime, Sweeney Todd ) as eccentric uncles who are entrusted with their 14-year-old nephew (A Christmas Story, The Musical's Johnny Rabe) for a summer. Based on the 2003 movie starring Michael Caine and Robert Duval, the book is by Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Curtains) with a score by First Date songwriters Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary. Scott Schwartz directs the musical which runs run through Oct. 6 at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre. Read the Playbill story.
