Singer-songwriter Mills and author Redd, penned the five-actor, one-act musical that is described as a "delicate balance of wisdom and sentiment...[that] reveals the vivid contrasts between life as it is remembered and life as it happens. Fiction in Photographs, a multimedia theatrical event, is a fresh, sincere and ultimately heartbreaking new musical."
Philip Katz/Broadway Theatrical and Amanda Rehbein produce the musical, which is aiming for a commercial run later this season. Redd played Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet Off-Broadway, while Mills was seen as Carl Perkins on Broadway and Off. Redd is also the co-author of What's That Smell: The Music Of Jacob Sterling.
The 3 PM reading, which Redd will also direct, will include Cole Burden (Les Miserables, Applause), singer-songwriter Adam Day, Alysha Deslorieux (Sister Act), David Mizzoni and Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening).
