Photo Coverage: [title of show] Opening Night

The hit musical [title of show] -- which won Obie Awards for its creators Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell and director Michael Beresse -- re-opened at the Vineyard Theatre (108 E. 15th St.) on July 14th for an 8-week engagement.

The show previously ran at the Vineyard from February 26th through April 30th; it was extended three times.The Village Voice Obie Awards for Messrs. Bowen, Bell and Beresse (The Light in the Piazza, Kiss Me, Kate) were among the few select awards given in musical categories at the annual event. Kevin McCollum, Laura Camien and the Vineyard Theatre produce the show's new commercial run. "[title of show] -- a hilarious and bittersweet tale about the artistic process and the indomitable spirit of two struggling writers and two struggling actresses who take on the seemingly impossible task of creating a new musical in just three weeks" -- features creators Bowen and Bell, as well as Susan Blackwell and Heidi Blickenstaff. It features musical direction by Larry Pressgrove. A cast album will be released by Ghostlight Records in late July.
