Presented as part of the BSC Musical Theatre Lab (William Finn, artistic producer; Julianne Boyd, artistic director), Presto Change-O features music by Joel Waggoner with a book and lyrics by Eric Price.
Directed by Marc Bruni (Beautiful) with music direction by Matt Gallagher, the cast features Tony Award nominees Kerry Butler (Xanadu, Hairspray), Brad Oscar (The Producers), Douglas Sills (The Scarlett Pimpernel) and Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, "Smash") as well as Judy McLane (Mamma Mia!) and Fred Applegate (The Last Ship).
The musical was commissioned by Carole and Daniel Burack.
Presto Change-O, according to BSC, "is a new musical about three generations of illusionists — and the woman who loves all of them — as they learn to co-exist, make amends, and reconcile what is truth and illusion in their own lives."
