Skylight Theatre Company to Present THE WRONG MAN, Begin. 1/25
Skylight Theatre Company has announced the first show of its inaugural season, the world premiere of The Wrong Man. Written and performed by Ross Golan, this unique underground musical about the justice system gone wrong also features Jennifer Brasuell and will be directed and choreographed by Lee Martino. Preview performances of The Wrong Man begin January 25 with opening set for Saturday, February 8 at 8pm. The limited engagement will run through March 2 only.
The Wrong Man is a powerful acoustical tale of what happens when the wrong man meets the wrong girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Framed for murder, his ill-fated circumstances spiral out of control, leaving him at the mercy of a flawed judicial system -innocent and alone as he awaits his execution.
Writer/performer Ross Golan is a multi-platinum selling songwriter from the north suburbs of Chicago. He has garnered a reputation as a razor-edged lyricist and astute cross-pollinator of pop and hip-hop, first with an album called Ross Golan & Molehead, a recording widely considered by many music critics to have been lamentably overlooked, and then in a collaboration with Tommy Walter as Glacier Hiking. Recently Golan has worked non-stop as a songwriter-for-hire, with such artists as Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green, Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, Icona Pop, Big Sean, and Travis Barker, among many others, recording and releasing his songs.
Director Lee Martino is a four-time Ovation Award-winner. She has directed and/or choreographed (or both) such productions as When You Wish: The Story of Walt Disney, American Misfits, Oklahoma!, Nuttin' But Hutton, Hello My Baby, Life Without Makeup, Kiss Me, Kate!, Falling for Eve and a multitude of others. She has also worked in television, animated features, live events, and many benefits. Martino is the winner of three Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards and the recipient of the Joel Hirschhorn Award for outstanding achievement in musical theatre.
