The show features a book, music and lyrics by Paul Louis, who is the author of over 50 children's musicals, and Nick Santa Maria, who performed on Broadway as Vince Fontaine in Tommy Tune's production of Grease. It is directed by David Arisco with musical direction by Martin Landry; arrangements are by Manny Schvartzman. Here's how New World Stages bills the new musical: "All men are schmucks who struggle with their daily existence. Real Men: The Musical follows that existence down Manhood Lane to gain some clarity, or at the very least, explore the common bond that all men are morons just trying to get by. Real Men is a 90-minute romp that delves into fatherhood, mid-life crisis, dating, marriage, potency, and sexuality." The engagement is scheduled to run through Jan. 2, 2016.
The creative team includes lighting designer Patrick Tennant and sound designer M. Florian Staab.
