As previously announced, Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch (The Apple Tree, Assassins, 9 to 5) will portray Robinson, the controlling character who manages actress Elise McKenna.
Silverman (The Phantom of the Opera, Music in the Air at City Center Encores!, Cry-Baby) will play Richard Collier, and Elless (Off-Broadway's The Other Josh Cohen, Mamma Mia! national tour) will portray Elise McKenna. Complete casting will be announced at a later date.
Somewhere in Time, based on Richard Matheson's romantic novel and film of the same title, has music by Doug Katsaros and lyrics by Amanda Yesnowitz with a book by Altar Boyz and Godspell producer Ken Davenport. Scott Schwartz (Jane Eyre, Golda's Balcony) will helm the musical that officially opens June 5 for a run through June 30.
Here's how the creative team bills the musical: "In Somewhere in Time, young playwright Richard Collier has an encounter with a mysterious old woman on the opening night of his earliest success; she entreats him, to his bewilderment, to 'come back to me.' Several years later, with his life and career in disarray, he seeks quiet and contemplation and checks in to a storied hotel from his youth. But his stay at the hotel turns into the journey of a lifetime as he unravels history-and time-to discover a powerful but perhaps impossible love."
