To create his first original stage musical since PROMISES, PROMISES (recently revived on Broadway), Bacharach has joined forces with SPRING AWAKENING‘s Steven Sater to re-imagine the classic O. Henry Christmas tale "The Gift of the Magi" for today's audiences. On Christmas Eve, estranged lovers Molly and Ben are haunted by the memory of happier times, and like the unforgettable melody of a favorite song, their memories conspire to bring them together again. A timeless love story that takes place over 20 years, SOME LOVERS features a new score by Bacharach.
The cast of SOME LOVERS features Jenni Barber (Young Molly), who has appeared on New York stages in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Sam Mendes' Bridge Project, From Up Here and Cactus Flower; Jason Danieley (Ben), whose Broadway credits include Next to Normal, Curtains, Candide and The Full Monty (also West End); Michelle Duffy (Molly), who has originated roles in the World Premieres of Leap of Faith, Continental Divide, An Italian Straw Hat and Mask; and Andrew Mueller (Young Ben), who recently appeared in the world premiere of For the Boys and received a Jeff Award for his work in Big River in Chicago.
