Rob Ashford Will Direct Harriet Harris, Christopher Sieber, John Dossett, Adrienne Warren in Reading of New Musical Wilshire
By Andrew Gans
Tony Award winner Rob Ashford, currently represented on Broadway with the revival of Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, will direct industry readings of the new musical comedy Wilshire April 4-5 at Chelsea Studios.
The readings will feature the talents of Rob Bartlett, Ray Bokhour, John Dossett, Rebecca Faulkenberry, Harriet Harris, Richard Poe, Justin Matthew Sargent, Christopher Sieber and Adrienne Warren.
Wilshire features a book by Bobby Goldman, widow of James Goldman, and music and lyrics by Drew Brody.
The musical is described as an "original story about life, death, and everyone in between. An ambitious developer has turned an old age home into a hip hotel in the heart of modern-day West Hollywood, but an egotistical rock god, his scheming agent, a vegan waitress and, of course, the ghosts of the former residents all threaten to ruin the grand opening of Wilshire."
Performances are scheduled for April 4 at 3 PM and April 5 at 11 AM.
Chelsea Studios - Studio 503 is located at 151 West 26th St., between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. For inquiries email WilshireRSVP@fstheatrical.com.
