Kurt Vonnegut’s God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is based on the iconic writer’s 1965 novel. The musical is also the first ever to team iconic songwriters Howard Ashman and Alan Menken.

Here, star Skylar Astin sings "Magical Moment" and he and co-star Santino Fontana chat about the familiarity and promise of the early Ashman/Menken tunes. Performances are July 27-30.
