Details about the readings follow:
May 6 at 7 PM Analog & Vinyl Music & lyrics by Paul Gordon Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt Music direction by Jodie Moore
"Harrison is obsessed with LP’s from the sixties, the superior quality of analog and trying to keep his vintage record store from going under. Rodeo Girl, a quirky Silverlake hipster, is obsessed with Harrison but he barely notices. That is, until a mysterious customer makes them a devilish offer they can’t refuse."
May 8 at 3 PM License to Marry Book, lyrics & music by Seymour Barab Directed by Dorothy Danner Music direction by James Besser
The cast includes Millinee Barrister, David Barron, Frank Basile, Josh Kohl, Michael Marcotte, Melissa Parks, Alexandra Pappas, Mark Womack and Lars Woodhul.
"License to Marry takes place on the day of Helena and Ramon's wedding, Mayor Vega receives the news that he is to be elevated to a post in the king's cabinet. It is his reward for having conducted the town's affairs without a single error. On this festive day, however, an error comes to light of monumental dimensions. Ramon, expecting Helena to be his bride, is married to her mother, Minerva, instead. What complicates matters is that it is to everyone's advantage to keep this misfortune from coming to the attention of the king's courier. To add to the complexities of the situation, Minerva's husband, having been given up for dead, returns and demand's his conjugal rights."
May 13 at 7 PM Mr. Confidential Book and lyrics by Samuel Bernstein (based on his award-winning book) Music by David Snyder Directed by Stephen Nacahmie
"Based on a true story. The story of the man who created 'Confidential Magazine' in the 1950s, Mr. Confidential is fast, fluid and sexy—a touch of burlesque mixed with the modern joy and peril of idol worship. It’s a giddy, vibrant show, set in New York and Hollywood at their most glamorous and dangerous. But look beyond the tabloid scandals, beneath the whipped cream and diamonds, and you find something truly shocking: Heart, family, and innocence. Go figure."
