Michael Berry (I Come For Love at NYMF) will direct the production, which includes Danny Bolero (In The Heights), Mel Johnson, Jr. (The Lion King The Rink), Beth McVey (42nd Street, Beauty and the Beast), Anita Welch (Avenue Q national tour), Tim Young (Next to Normal) and EJ Zimmerman (Avenue Q national tour). Performances will continue through July 22.
Here's how the show is billed: "Moving on is never easy, as six strangers discover when trapped between stations on the subway. As tension builds, colorful characters clash as they recognize pieces of themselves emerging in one another. With book, music and lyrics by Riley Thomas, this poignant and tuneful contemporary musical takes audiences on a humorous and heartfelt ride as it explores exactly what it means to be Stuck."
Other members of the creative team include musical director Joshua Steven Kartes, scenic and lighting designer David S. Goldstein, costume designer Stephanie Alegado and general manager Zachary Laks.
Stuck had its world premiere at Chicago's La Costa Theater in 2008. A developmental presentation was subsequently produced at New York's Metropolitan Room.
