Barrington Stage Company’s Musical Theatre Lab will present readings of the new musical Fall Springs August 30–31 on the St. Germain Stage.
Directed by Stephen Brackett (Be More Chill) with music direction by Brad Gardner and vocal arrangements by Angelique Mouyis, the cast will feature Alyse Alan Louis (A New Brain) as Eloise Bradley, Alan H. Green (BSC’s The Royal Family of Broadway) as Mayor Robert Bradley, Ken Marks (Dear Evan Hansen) as Noland Wolanske, Ellen Harvey (BSC’s Company) as Beverly Cushman, Sam Heldt as Felix Cushman, John-Andrew Morrison as Roberto Mariposa, Cami Arboles as Vera Mariposa, Noah Virgile as Cooper Mitford, and Doreen Montalvo (On Your Feet!) as Veronica Mitford.
Fall Springs has music and lyrics by Niko Tsakalakos (Pool Boy, Into the Wild) and a book and lyrics by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb.
The new musical is set in the town of Fall Springs, which is cash-strapped but sits directly on top of America’s largest reserve of cosmetic essential oils. With new fracking techniques being recklessly implemented, the ground beneath Fall Springs is crumbling as boulders, buildings, and the occasional bartender are swallowed into the ground.
BSC’s St. Germain Stage at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center is located at 36 Linden Street. For tickets, priced $15, visit BarringtonStageCo.org or call (413) 236-8888.
