Donna Bullock, Rachel de Benedet, et al. Set for NOTHING IS FOREVER, 3/11 & 12
UnsungMusicalsCo. Inc. (www.UnsungMusicals.org) has announced a special return concert engagement of the new musical song cycle Nothing is Forever by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winner Morton Gould (Billion Dollar Baby) and Tony and Grammy Award nominee Carolyn Leigh (Peter Pan, Little Me, Gatsby). Starring Obie Award winner Donna Bullock (Ragtime, A Class Act), Astaire Award nominee Rachel de Benedet (Catch Me If You Can, Adrift in Macao) and Drama League nominee Kristin Maloney (The Talk of the Town), the concert presentations will playMarch 11 & 12 at the Connelly Theatre (220 East 4th Street).
Conceived and directed by UMC artistic director Ben West (Gatsby, How Now, Dow Jones, Platinum), Nothing is Forever is a dazzling musical portrait of one woman at three different decades in her life. Romance, cynicism and regret intertwine in this evocative and timely tale set in New Orleans’ vibrant French Quarter.
Nothing is Forever features musical direction and arrangements by Fran Minarik (Gatsby, Making the Boys) and lighting design by Joe Hodge (Perfect Crime, Gatsby). The new song cycle was created using original material written circa 1977 for the unproduced Broadway musical Enter Juliet. UMC presented the world premiere of Nothing is Forever in November 2011 which also starred Bullock, de Benedet and Maloney.
UMC is currently presenting a new production of the hit 1948 revue Make Mine Manhattan at the Connelly Theatre with performances March 1 - 17. (Nothing is Forever will play two of the dark nights.) Tickets are available via SmartTix.com or 212-868-4444.
