A host of Broadway actors will be part of the November 13 industry readings of Sacrifices—The Ancient Musical, which is billed as "a new musical about the struggles and politics that caused Jerusalem's destruction."
Directed by Tea Alagic (The Brothers Size at The Public), the readings will be presented at 1 PM and 6 PM at Pearl Studios in Manhattan. Andy Roninson is the music director.
The cast will feature Mary Testa (42nd Street, Wicked), Kyle Scatliffe (The Color Purple, The Scottsboro Boys), Margo Seibert (In Transit, Rocky), Julie Benko (Fiddler on the Roof, Les Miserables), Jerry Dixon (If/Then, Once On This Island), Michael Maliakel (Berkeley Rep’s Monsoon Wedding), George Merrick (Honeymoon in Vegas, South Pacific), and Luis Villabon (Peter Pan at Madison Square Garden) with Chrissy Pardo, Jennifer Roberts, and Jordan Ahnquist.
Sacrifices —The Ancient Musical, written and developed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and New York, has a book by Eli Kaplan-Wildmann, music by Yonatan Cnaan, and lyrics by Andrew Zachary Cohen. The musical tells the story of a "city torn apart by corruption and hate, leading both to its destruction and to the creation of a new life—one without bloodshed or sacrifice."
