Jeremy Morse, Meetu Chilana, Lauren Marcus & More Set to Satr in LITTLE BITTERS Reding
David Alan Thornton presents a staged reading of his original musical Little Bitters Monday, September 15 at the Galway Pub. Can you love someone else if you've lost yourself? Little Bitters seeks to answer the question as it follows the up-by-his-bootstraps romantic Mikey, the bitchier-than-thou ex-Jazz-singer Pearl, and the young mother Liz: all trapped behind the service aprons of their local bar. One by one, they discover the small beautiful things in their lives that may- or may not- make them worth the living. With fresh style and a classic charge, Little Bitters highlights the hopes, abuse, selfishness, and victories that live in us all.
With book, music, and lyrics by David Alan Thornton and direction by Celine Rosenthal, the cast will include Jeremy Morse as Mikey, Meetu Chilana as Pearl, Michael Indeglio as Benson, Elyssa Samsel as Kayla, Lauren Marcus as Liz, Scott Lilly as Bubbles, Bill Coyne as Dan, and Lisa Birnbaum as Stevie. The night will feature styling by Jaime Torres.
Little Bitters plays the Guinness Room at the Galway Pub (7 E. 36th St.) on September 15 at 6:00pm. This performance will be free and open to the public, but seating will be limited, so please RSVP by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
