George Psomas, Felicia Finley & More Will Star in FIXING FRANKIE Reading
This Friday, March 25th, a private reading will be held of FIXING FRANKIE, a new musical by Joe Langworth (book and lyrics) and Steve Marzullo (music). The team, who met during the original production of RAGTIME in 1996, co-conceived this new musical comedy and it is their first full-length collaboration. Langworth will also direct with Marzullo providing musical direction.
First-born son Frankie Scordato wrestles with sexuality, Catholicism, aspirations and the meaning of love in all its forms, in the midst of a chaotic and often misguided Italian-American family. Together with his gregarious best friend Margaret, the duo searches for community in the hedonistic 1980s of New York City and Frankie finds himself part of an evolving gay culture without an understanding of what it ultimately means for him. The eclectic score reflects Frankie's musical influences ranging from The Partridge Family to the Sugar Hill Gang to Sinead O'Connor and we witness his journey from a charming five-year-old boy in 1966 to a middle aged man still seeking genuine commitment and self-acceptance.
The cast features George Psomas (Fiddler on the Roof) as Frankie, with Sean Ewing (Amazing Grace), Felicia Finley (Mamma Mia!), Robert Montano (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Laura Pavles (MAC Award nominee), Christine Pedi (Chicago), and Joseph Siravo (The People vs O.J.Simpson).
