Somewhere in Time features music by Doug Katsaros and lyrics by Amanda Yesnowitz with a book by Ken Davenport. Casting will be announced at a later date (Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour starred in the film).
In Somewhere in Time, press notes state, "young playwright Richard Collier has an encounter with a mysterious old woman on the opening night of his earliest success; she entreats him, to his bewilderment, to 'come back to me.' Several years later, with his life and career in disarray, he seeks quiet and contemplation and checks in to a storied hotel from his youth. But his stay at the hotel turns into the journey of a lifetime as he unravels history—and time—to discover a powerful but perhaps impossible love."
“I’m proud that Portland Center Stage has earned a reputation as a theater committed to, and excelling in, the production of new work,” added artistic director Chris Coleman. “We have also cultivated an audience for great musicals, so when the opportunity arose to become part of launching this exciting world premiere musical, we knew it would be a terrific addition to our 25th Anniversary Season.”
The design team includes Alexander Dodge on sets, and Portland Center Stage resident costume designer Jeff Cone. Additional designers will be announced.
