Constantine Maroulis to Lead LOST IN LOVE Reading in April
Constantine Maroulis, the Tony-nominated star of Rock of Ages and American Idol, has been cast in the role of "Eduardo" for an invited industry-only April reading of "LOST IN LOVE," a new musical based on the hit songs of the iconic band, Air Supply.
Air Supply, the hit making duo of Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock, scored seven top five singles in the 1980s with such mega-hits as "All Out of Love," "The One That You Love," and "Making Love Out of Nothing at All." Celebrating 35 years since Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in history, Air Supply continues to sell out live concerts worldwide.
Graham Russell, who composed "All Out of Love," "Lost in Love" and many of Air Supply's hits, has written four new songs for the musical and is working hands-on with book writer Melissa Bell in developing the new musical, with Robyn Lee to direct.
Maroulis is slated to headline the upcoming Jekyll & Hyde revival later this year.
"LOST IN LOVE" is set in England in the early 1900s and has a Downton Abbey feel. As royalty and emerging American wealth collide, a man and a woman must follow tradition or live for love. Maroulis plays Eduardo, a charming Italian prince, in title, but with little means of financial support.
The staged reading is scheduled April 23-24 in New York City. For information on obtaining an invitation, please email LostInLovetheMusical@gmail.com (Industry/invited only).
