Craig Ramsay, Matt Loehr, Brian Childers and Mark Price Set for Reading of New Musical Kiss From Alexander

Dennis Grimaldi Productions will present industry readings of the new musical fantasy A Kiss From Alexander May 21 at Shetler Studios in Manhattan.

Denis Jones will direct the 1 PM and 4 PM readings, which will feature the talents of Craig Ramsay, Matt Loehr, Brian Childers, Mark Price, Barry Busby, Travis Nesbitt, Tony Niedenbach and Cedric Lieba.

A Kiss From Alexander has book and lyrics by Stephan de Ghelder and music by Brad Simmons. Thomas Recktenwald is stage manager.

The show is described as "an Off-Off-Broadway musical featuring the historical Alexander the Great as an over-the-top, gay party boy gets back to him in the afterlife. Not amused, he returns to earth - as a temporary mortal - to right the wrongs created by attractive director/writer Nick Matthews. When boy meets demigod things are never what they seem in this romantic musical fantasy set in New York's contemporary theatre scene."

A Kiss From Alexander, which premiered at Chicago's Bailiwick Theatre directed by David Zak, received a Jeff nomination for Best New Musical, 2005.

An Off-Broadway production is planned. To RSVP or for more information, contact, (212) 861-2906.
