Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma Premieres New Musical TRIANGLE Tonight

Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma previously announced that it would stage the first ever production of the new musical TRIANGLE, written by three of musical theatre's brightest young composers. The show will be directed by Lyric's Artistic Director Michael Baron and feature original music by Curtis Moore (music and book), Thomas Mizer (lyrics and book) and Joshua Scher (book) and a cast of Broadway stars and local favorites. The production will run from today, March 26 through April 5 at the Plaza Theatre.

This original mystery/romance is set against the backdrop of New York City's infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Two couples from different eras-a 1911 Jewish seamstress and her Italian foreman and in 2011, a graduate student and a free-spirited stranger-discover what it means to risk everything you have and everything you believe for love.

"This is truly a unique and important opportunity for us," said Baron. "It has always been one of my goals to not only reinterpret the classics, but also create new works right here at Lyric. I first saw a reading of this wonderful new musical at The National Alliance for Musical Theatre's New Works Festival in New York City in the fall of 2012. I instantly approached the composers and asked them if they would be interested in having TRIANGLE developed 'on its feet' at Lyric with the first full production. With a cast of Broadway regulars and local favorites and a creative team from New York and Oklahoma, this journey promises to be an exciting one I hope you take with us."

The cast of six will be headed by Broadway's Megan McGinnis (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST), Adam Halpin (RENT) and Adam Heller (LES MISERABLES and Lyric's CALL ME MADAM). They will be joined by local favorites Dallas Lish (Lyric's SOME ENCHANTED EVENING), Jennifer Teel (Lyric's A CHRISTMAS CAROL) and West Coast actress Sharon Reitkerk (TheatreWorks' LITTLE WOMEN).

Following each performance, there will be a talk back with Baron and the creative team, as well as members of the theatre community. Patrons are encouraged to stay after the show to join the conversation and learn more about the development of TRIANGLE.
