Singer-songwriter Mills and author Redd, penned the five-actor, one-act musical that is described as a "delicate balance of wisdom and sentiment...[that] reveals the vivid contrasts between life as it is remembered and life as it happens. Fiction in Photographs, a multimedia theatrical event, is a fresh, sincere and ultimately heartbreaking new musical."
Philip Katz/Broadway Theatrical and Amanda Rehbein produce the musical, which is aiming for a commercial run later this season. Redd played Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet Off-Broadway, while Mills was seen as Carl Perkins on Broadway and Off. Redd is also the co-author of What's That Smell: The Music Of Jacob Sterling.
The 3 PM reading, which Redd will also direct, will include Cole Burden (Les Miserables, Applause), singer-songwriter Adam Day, Alysha Deslorieux (Sister Act), David Mizzoni and Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening).
Fiction in Photographs has choreography by Jacob Pinion and vocal arrangements and musical direction by Adam Podd.
