New Line continues its 26th season with the local premiere of the fiery 2002 jazz-rock musical THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS, by legendary film and stage composer Marvin Hamlisch (his last theatre score), lyricist Craig Carnelia, and Tony-winning playwright John Guare, based on the famous short story and film. The show was nominated for seven Tonys, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score, and eleven Drama Desk Awards. It's a Faustian moral nightmare, all set to a sizzling "jazz noir" score from the composer of the stage musicals A Chorus Line, They're Playing Our Song, Smile, The Goodbye Girl, and the film scores for The Sting, The Way We Were, Sophie's Choice, and many others.

The cast of New Line's SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS includes Zachary Allen Farmer as J.J. Hunsecker, Matt Pentecost as Sidney, Ann Hier as Susan, Sean Michael as Dallas, Sarah Porter as Rita, Kimi Short as Madge, with Jason Blackburn, Mara Bollini, Kent Coffel, Alison Helmer, William Pendergast, Michelle Sauer, Christopher Strawhun, and Sara Rae Womack. The show is directed by Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with music direction by Jeffrey Richard Carter, choreography by Taylor Pietz, scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Elli Castonguay.
