The world premiere of Only Human, starring Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Gary Busey, will begin performances October 8 at Theatre at St. Clements ahead of a October 21 opening.
The new pop rock musical offers a comedic, contemporary take on the story of Jesus and Lucifer, re-casting them as co-workers who just can't see eye to eye. Busey stars as The Boss (God) alongside Mike Squillante as Lou (Lucifer), Kim Steele (Summer: The Donna Summer Musical) as Maggie, and Evan Maltby (New York Musical Festival) as J.C.
The cast also features Ben Bogen (Frozen, Jersey Boys national tour), Lili Thomas (The Hello Girls), and Charles West (The Scarlet Pimpernel).
