Steven Yuhasz will direct a concert reading of Short Tenors and a Dead Soprano a new musical in development with book, music and lyrics by Glenn Richard Treibitz, and musical direction by Alexander Frey. This new musical will be presented October 26 & 27 at 7:30PM by the New Provincetown Players as part of the Fall Playwrights Festival. The workshop is co-produced by Michael Staringer of Diabelli Management.
Short Tenors and a Dead Soprano has been in development of the last three years under the guidance of the New Provincetown Players, Producing Artistic Director Guy Wolf and Co-producer Michael Staringer. Mr. Staringer has assembled a talented cast that includes: Jon Arterton, Mary Abt, Adam Berry, James Mack, Ian McMillan and Kristen Utt.
"This backstage musical has an original book about life in the theatre, the rise to stardom, and how you have to die to be loved, or not. Maria Falcone, known as 'Divarina' to those close to her, is a self-absorbed, manipulative, amazingly talented, and dead. The hilarity begins when the three 'short' tenors with whom she shared her life, both onstage and off, gather at her funeral," explain press notes.
Yuhasz recently directed the York Theatre's Mufti presentation of Zorba with Jeff McCarthy, Beth Fowler, Emily Skinner, Aaron Posner and Crista Moore in NYC; the critically acclaimed production of The King and I at the Ogunquit Playhouse with Lorenzo Lamas, Rachel deBenedet and Paulo Montalban, and the summer hits for NPP of Forever Plaid and their production of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill with Gail Nelson.
