The world premiere of Randy Newman's new musical Harps and Angels, with Katey Sagal, Michael McKean, Adriane Lenox and more, opened at the Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum Nov. 21.
Directed by Tony winner Jerry Zaks, the cast also features Storm Large, Ryder Bach and Matthew Saldivar.
Harps and Angels was conceived by Jack Viertel and features music and lyrics by Randy Newman and musical staging by Warren Carlyle. "Randy Newman’s witty, complex, bittersweet and often satirical songbook is at the heart of this new work, which creates a compelling, honest and humorous commentary on what it is like to be born, grow up, fall in love, and live and die in America," according to press notes.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
