STAGE TUBE: First Look at Hunter Foster's THE HOLLOW
Signature Theatre's 22nd season kicks off by making musical theatre history with its American Musical Voices Project: Next Generation "World Premiere Repertory Series" - the first time in the history of the American theatre that two world premiere musicals will be presented in rotating repertory, in full production. The eight-week series, beginning previews on August 23rd, will produce The Hollow (book by Hunter Foster; music and lyrics by Matt Conner), to be directed by Signature Theatre's Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner. Check out the just-released trailer for the show by clicking below!
The Hollow is a distinctive reinterpretation of Washington Irving's classic tale Sleepy Hollow as created by Hunter Foster and Matt Conner. Following Nevermore and Partial Eclipse, this is Conner's third musical composition production at Signature Theatre. "I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of this historical project," said Conner. "New works come to life thanks to the leadership and vision of Eric Schaeffer along with the generous support of Ted and Mary Jo Shen. Their dedication to the theatre gives rise to opportunities for works that otherwise may be left on a shelf." Foster recently wrote Summer of '42 as well as the new musical Bonnie and Clyde; among his many performing credits is the role of Molina in Signature's production of Kiss of the Spiderwoman.
