Jason Gotay, Ariana DeBose, Rachel Potter and Corey Mach are among the artists taking part in an invitation-only reading of the new musical Boys Vs. Girls Nov. 30 in Manhattan Nov. 30.
The reading of Drew Overcash's musical also features Brian Crum, Libby Servais, Kelsey Burd, Jake Loewenthal, Blake Pfeil and Katherine Wright.
Travis Greisler directs with musical direction by Overcash.
Boys Vs. Girls is described as a "new musical about a set of twins, the worlds they live in and the relationships that are tested as their worlds collide....Adam is the president of his class and all around popular guy. Katie is a stay-at-home, bookworm who would rather go unnoticed than have anyone even mention her name. But when Katie starts to tutor their neighbor with only three weeks left before graduation, their worlds collide and their relationships are tested."
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. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
