Invitation-only industry readings of Infernal: The Musical, based on Dante’s Inferno, will be presented January 26 and 27 in Manhattan.
Directed by Alex Sanchez, the cast will feature Charmien Byrd, Hannah Duran, Rent Tony winner Wilson Jermaine Heredia, Eddie Korbich, Julia Meadows, Misha Mullany, Goran Popovic, Jazz Sunpanich, and Luis Villabon.
With a book and lyrics by Misha Mullany, music by Mullany and Brent Morden, and music direction and arrangements by Morden, Infernal explores consequences, remorse, and our own inescapable demons. The rock musical follows Lily, who dies and goes to Hell but doesn’t understand why.
"What excites me most about this show is that it is equal parts philosophical, witty, fun, and deep,” shares Mullany. “It uses all these different characters and styles of music to talk about something that is so familiar and human: our fears, our relationships, and our regrets. The world is dramatized so that the characters can be even more human. This show is universal. And of course, it's a musical so there will be ‘show tunes.’"
General management is by Perry Street Theatricals.
