After the Fair Benefit Concert, With Jenn Gambatese, Louis Hobson, Anastasia Barzee, Walter Charles, Postponed
By Michael Gioia
After the Fair, the concert version of the award-winning musical set for Jan. 30, has been postponed due to scheduling difficulties. A date for March or April 2012 will be announced at a later time.
The radio/concert version of After the Fair was to be held at the Society for Ethical Culture to benefit WBAI-Pacifica Radio and Mainstreet Musicals.
Directed by Gabriel Barre (Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party) with musical direction by David Evans, the cast was scheduled to include Anastasia Barzee (Urinetown, Jekyll & Hyde), Walter Charles (Anything Goes, La Cage Aux Folles), Jenn Gambatese (All Shook Up, Tarzan) and Louis Hobson (Next to Normal, Bonnie and Clyde).
Based on a short story by Thomas Hardy, with book and lyrics by Stephen Cole and music by Matthew Ward, After the Fair made its premiere at the Lyric Stage in Dallas, TX, and won five Dallas Theatre League Awards including Best New Play or Musical and Best Musical Production. In 1999, After the Fair made its Off-Broadway debut at the York Theatre Company. The show was also seen at the King's Head Theatre in London.
