Theatre Aspen Kicks Off Development Series with Sheik and Sater's ALICE BY HEART Tonight

Theatre Aspen is so excited to kick off their summer with a special pre-season event! From the creators of Spring Awakening, which won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score, comes Alice by Heart: a fresh, modern, musical take on Alice in Wonderland. Originally commissioned by London's Royal National Theatre: Connections, Alice by Heart features a book by Steven Sater with Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), lyrics by Sater, and music by Duncan Sheik. The musical will be directed by Lear deBessonet (The Public Theater's The Tempest), with choreography by Chase Brock (Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark), and is presented in association with Kurt Deutsch, Grammy Award-winning founder of Sh-k-boom/Ghostlight Records.

The team will workshop the piece in Aspen, and host a sneak-peek into their rehearsal process for an invited audience at the conclusion of the work-time, at the Wheeler Opera House tonight, May 31 at 7.30pm. The company of young actors, includes Riley Costello (Everyday Rapture), Mike Faist (Newsies), Noah Galvin (The Burnt Part Boys), Molly Gordon (as "Alice"), Stephanie Hsu, Rodney Ingram, Nathaly Lopez (What's It All About?), Andrew Mueller (Peter and the Starcatcher), Sydney Patrick, Sydney Shepherd (First Date), Marrick Smith, andPhillipa Soo (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812).

The workshop launches Theatre Aspen's new play development series, an important component of the organization's new strategic plan, one that formally commits to developing new work in addition to our regular programming and educational offerings. Board members Barbara and Franklin Carson's lead gift of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars will support our commitment to help artists develop work from the very early stages through production. Additional support was received from the Somerled Charitable Foundation.

Tickets are $25 and will be available from the Wheeler Box Office at 970.920.5770 or aspenshowtix.com beginning May 5th. For more information, go to theatreaspen.org.
