As previously reported, Million Dollar Quartet cast members Redd and Mills co-authored the musical that features Pritchard ( Spring Awakening), Halpin ( Dogfight), Burden ( Les Miserables), Sosie Bacon and David Mizzoni.
Redd will direct the developmental lab that will offer public performances Oct. 10 at 4 PM and Oct. 11-12 at 7 PM at New World Stages. The production will have staging by Emily Maltby and musical direction by Adam Podd. Janet Brenner and Michael Coco present the work.
According to the authors, " Fiction in Photographs tells the story of five strangers who find themselves intimately connected when their personal lives are put on public display in a Brooklyn art gallery."
The creative team is hopeful for a 2013 Off-Broadway run. Funding is currently being raised via a Kickstarter campaign. Contributors have the chance to receive a ticket to a preview performance of the musical, as well as invitations to special first-look events with the cast and creative team.

The musical is described as a "delicate balance of wisdom and sentiment...[that] reveals the vivid contrasts between life as it is remembered and life as it happens. Fiction in Photographs, a multimedia theatrical event, is a fresh, sincere and ultimately heartbreaking new musical."
Redd played Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet Off-Broadway, while Mills was seen as Carl Perkins on Broadway and Off. Redd is also the co-author of What's That Smell: The Music Of Jacob Sterling.
