Directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller, the new musical features book, music and lyrics by Nick Blaemire. The show is being produced by Kansas City Repertory Theatre through special arrangement with Hunter Arnold and TBD Theatricals.
The cast will comprise Daniel Jenkins as Gene Fuller; Van Hughes as Nate Fuller; Michael Tacconi as Jeremy Fuller; Lindsay Mendez as Lizzie; Kayla Foster as Molly; and in a separate cast who only appear in interstitial “home videos,” Jenny Powers as Maggie Fuller; Stephen Kunken as Robert Hutchens; Christian Maldini as Young Nate; Patrick Gibbons as Young Jeremy; and Lukas Parrish as 4 Year Old Nate.
A Little More Alive is described as a “captivating new pop musical, in which two estranged brothers reunite at their mother’s funeral. An unexpected discovery upends every memory they have – and it becomes their mission to learn the truth about their family; but, along the way, Nate and Jeremy find that no one is exempt from the gray area between right and wrong.”
The production will have musical supervision and orchestrations by Jesse Vargas, musical direction by Cian McCarthy, lighting design by Jeff Croiter and Cory Pattak, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, scenic design by Wilson Chin and costume design by Alison Heryer.
