Jazz musician Peter Cincotti ("Metropolis") authored music and lyrics to the musical that has a book by his sister, playwright Pia Cincotti. Jeremy Dobrish ( Rated P, Date of a Lifetime) and Gina Rattan (resident director, Billy Elliott) will direct the July 12-21 run at the Theater at St. Clement's.
The cast includes Federer ( Wicked), Rosenberg ( Mamma Mia!), Ramey ( Thoroughly Modern Millie) and Leviton ("Beverly Hills 90210") as well as Lavon Fisher-Wilson ( Chicago), Amanda Bruton ( Crimes of the Heart), Anthony Festa, Kevin Reed ( The Visit), Michael St. John, Corey Scheys ( Annie) and Daryl Winslow (E vil, Dead The Musical).
Here's how the musical is billed: "It's summer and the temperature's rising when suddenly every beach on the Jersey Shore is threatened with closure: The water is too polluted for swimming! That is until Rob – a small town pool technician – stumbles upon an opportunity that will change his life and save the sea. But when a local handy man's lust for power and revenge threatens Rob's world, the two rivals are thrust into battle to restore the ocean and win the heart of a woman they both love. How Deep Is The Ocean? is a musical comedy about love, lust, and chlorine."
Wendy Seyb ( The Pee-Wee Herman Show, The Toxic Avenger) will choreograph with musical direction by Jason Webb ( Leap Of Faith, Memphis).
