The Harvey Schmidt, Tom Jones and N. Richard Nash musical 110 in the Shade is a musical take on Nash's play The Rainmaker by the team that created The Fantasticks. As production notes reveal, "The mercurial Starbuck [Kazee] promises rain for a drought-stricken town and passion for the stalwart but resigned Lizzie [McDonald]."
Dan Knechtges will provide choreography and Paul Gemignani serves as musical director. Orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick. The design team features Santo Loquasto (sets and costumes), Christopher Akerlind (lighting) and Dan Moses Schreier (sound).
McDonald has appeared on Broadway in A Raisin in the Sun, Ragtime, Master Class and Carousel to Tony-winning success. Other Broadway credits for the actress-singer include Henry IV, Marie Christine and The Secret Garden.
