Somewhere in Time has music by Doug Katsaros and lyrics by Amanda Yesnowitz with a book by MacbethAltar Boyz and Godspell producer Ken Davenport. The musical is based on the novel and film by Richard Matheson.

The July 31 reading will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Dan Knechtges (Xanadu, 110 in the Shade, ...Spelling Bee). Scott Schwartz helmed the Portland premiere.

Samonsky (South Pacific) returns to the role of Richard Collier opposite Davi (The Drowsy Chaperone, A Chorus Line) as Elise McKenna. The original 1980 film "Somewhere in Time" starred Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour.

The reading will also feature Cal Alexander, Erin Burniston, Phil Carroll, David Cryer, Janet Dickinson, Ryan Duncan, Janet Dunn, Robin Haynes, Lizzie Klemperer, Denis Lambert, Jared Q. Miller, Burke Moses, Benjie Randall, Britt Swanson Cryer and Jessica L. Vosk.

According to the creators, "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."
