Big Dipper Productions will present an industry reading of the new musical All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go October 12 at Pearl Studios in Manhattan.
Directed by Hannah Ryan, the cast will feature NaTasha Yvette Williams (Waitress) as Joan Wilkes, Jordan Barrow (The Tempest) as her son Dez, Sean Allan Krill (Jagged Little Pill) as Jacky, Robert Wesley Mason (The Consul) as Amish farmer Amos, Caitlin Houlahan (Waitress) as Rebecca, Amos' rebellious daughter, Bianca Leigh (Transamerica) as Barbie, Liz Larsen (Beautiful) as Bonnie, DeMone (Miss Saigon) as Mr. Sapper, and Nehal Joshi (Gettin’ the Band Back Together) and Lori Hammel (Mamma Mia!) in multiple roles.
All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go has music and lyrics by Jimmy Roberts and a book by Catherine Filloux and John Daggett, with additional lyrics by Daggett.
In the new musical, Joan Wilkes must sell The Big Dipper Inn, her offbeat and debt-ridden motel in Buffalo, known for its singing hostess and rich family history. But when a monster blizzard maroons a group of Amish folks and a busload of cross-dressers on her doorstep, possibilities abound.
The stage manager is Kelly A. Martindale; casting is by Geoff Josselson, CSA.
