Matt Luminello: Nick Jonas... after his impressive turn as Finch in How to Succeed he would be well suited for the role of Prince Topher. His voice would fit the Rodgers and Hammerstein score well.
Nick Jonas, who succeeded Criss after his stint in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, has also been seen on Broadway in Annie Get Your Gun, Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables. He is also known as one-third of the pop boy band The Jonas Brothers.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
