Photo Coverage: EVERYDAY RAPTURE Red Carpet
Everyday Rapture opened officially on April 29th, 2010 at the American Airlines Theatre On Broadway (227 West 42nd Street) to great reviews. This is a limited engagement through July 11th, 2010.
Previews began on Monday, April 19th for Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway production of Everyday Rapture, the critically acclaimed new musical starring Sherie Rene Scott, by Dick Scanlan & Sherie Rene Scott and directed by Michael Mayer.
Everyday Rapture is the story of a young woman's psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). Everyday Rapture also features songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Supremes, Elton John, Tom Waits, U2 and Judy Garland.
The cast features Eamon Foley, Lindsay Mendez and Betsy Wolfe.
The artistic team includes: Choreography by Michele Lynch, orchestrations & arrangements by Tom Kitt, music supervision by Michael Rafter and music direction by Marco Paguia. The design team includes Christine Jones (Sets), Tom Broecker (Costumes), Kevin Adams (Lights), Brian Ronan (Sound) and Darrel Maloney (Projections).
Everyday Rapture premiered at Second Stage on May 3rd, 2009. Due to unanimous critical acclaim, the production was extended twice beyond its limited engagement. Everyday Rapture has been nominated for two Lucille Lortel Awards: Outstanding Musical & Outstanding Lead Actress (Sherie Rene Scott).
The Everyday Rapture cast album was released on iTunes on April 27 and in stores June 2010 on
