Directed by Stephen Nachamie, Naughty/Nice will feature Alexandra Frohlinger (Soul Doctor), Timatha Kasten, Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), George Salazar (Godspell), Emily Bindiger (Hair, Shenandoah), Dennis Deal, Carolee Goodgold and Jim Vincent.
Presented as the first of the new Producer Circle Company productions, the reading will benefit the New York Center for Children.
"Naughty/Nice is a new and very grown-up musical by BMI Workshop writers Gerald Stockstill (music) and Kenneth Jones (lyrics) designed as an affectionate throwback to the Greenwich Village musical revues for the 1950’s and 1960’s that were lean, mean, spare, satiric and sharply funny," press notes state. "The musical is comprised of letters to Santa Clause with adult perspectives; once described as a 'South Park' meets Avenue Q meets Spelling Bee meets A Charlie Brown Christmas meets the traditional Rankin/Bass Christmas special."
The reading will feature musical direction by David Gardos and sound design by Kurt Bradley. Alexis M. Qualls is the stage manager.
