Transport Group will present the New York premiere of the new musical The Memory Show beginning April 16 at The Duke on 42nd Street.
Directed by Joe Calarco, the production will officially open April 30 at 7 PM. The two-hander will co-star Broadway's Catherine Cox and Leslie Kritzer.
The Memory Show, which has book and lyrics by Sara Cooper and music by Zach Redler, is described as such: "Showing up is half the battle...and then there's the other half. When a daughter comes home to care for her aging mother, memory is only one land mine in the new musical The Memory Show. Conflicting versions of the past collide in this honest and darkly funny portrait of a mother, a daughter, and their inescapable relationship."
The production will also have set design by Brian Prather, costume design by Kathryn Rohe, lighting design by Chris Lee, sound design by Walter Trarbach, music direction by Vadim Feitchner and orchestrations by Lynn Shankel. The stage manager is Theresa Flanagan.
Show times will be Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM. Performances will continue through May 18.
