Michelle Tattenbaum will direct the 7 PM reading at the JCC Manhattan, located at 76th Street and Amsterdam Ave. It is open to the public. Luck! has book and lyrics by Waldropp (When Pigs Fly!) and music by Ross (Little By Little).

In addition to Noll, Andrews, Bahorek and Fraser, the cast will include Ruthie Baker, Tiffan Borelli, Kevin Duda, Michael J. Farina, Angela Grovey, Taylor Louderman, James Moye and Arbender Robinson. Kate J. Cudworth will stage manage.

According to the creators, "In this fractured folk tale, Mazel and Shlimazel, the spirits of Good Luck and Bad Luck, make a bet to determine who is more powerful. Mazel takes a hapless young man under her wing for one year, at the end of which Shlimazel attempts to undo everything she's done—in one second!"

Luck! is presented as part of the JCC's First Look/Deeper Look Musical Theater Series.
