Jennifer Blood, Jillian Gottlieb, Sydney James Harcourt and A.J. Shively lead the cast of the Prospect Theater Company's Off-Broadway premiere of Unlock'd, the Richard Rodgers Award-winning musical by rising theatrical composers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor. Performances begin June 16, prior to an official opening June 27, at The Duke on 42nd Street.
Here's how it's billed: "Clarissa is tired of living in the shadow of her flirtatious sister Belinda, the most adored woman in 18th century England. Wits sharpened and scissors in hand, Clarissa sets out to cut Belinda — and her glorious locks of hair — down to size... and to find a man of her own! Through an innovative score featuring electric guitar alongside harpsichord and strings, four star-crossed lovers and the mischievous spirits that surround them are each unwittingly 'unlocked' to their true feelings and identities."
The cast features Blood (Cole Porter's Nymph Errant, Yeast Nation), Gottlieb (The Awesome 80s Prom), Harcourt (The Lion King, American Idiot), Shively (La Cage aux Folles, February House), Maria Couch (Iron Curtain), Chris Gunn (The New Hopeville Comics), Adam Daveline, Catherine LeFrere (Once Upon a Time in New Jersey), Lukas Poost, Chandler Reeves, Emily Rogers and Hansel Tan (Rites of Passage).
