May 31, 2007

The York Theatre Company's Developmental Reading Series will continue June 5 with a reading of Plastic! The Musical.

The musical, which was the a recipient of a 2006 Daryl Roth Award, will feature the talents of Jerry Dixon, Matt Hinkley, Nancy Johnston, Scott Robertson, Lorinda Lisitza, Lance Rubin, Jason F. Williams and HelÚne Yorke. John Simpkins will direct the 3 PM presentation.

Plastic! The Musical features book and lyrics by Robert Maddock and music by Joe Iconis and Reza Jacobs. The musical, according to press notes, "is the greatest, funniest and most shocking love story between a one-armed janitor and a buxom starlet named Tallulah Bombolino. Together they defy a vicious world of scathing perverts and gross tyrants. The songs are fireball pop anthems and the story is a kiss and a blow to the head. Scaredy-cats beware: this show involves, ill-disposed underwear models, a magic 8-ball, tiramisu and a bloody hatchet."

The York Theatre Company is located in Manhattan at 54th Street just east of Lexington Avenue.

Reservations for the free reading may be made by emailing Jlandsman@yorktheatre.org or by calling (212) 935-5824, ext. 24.
