Andrea McArdle, Constantine Maroulis, et al. Set for LOST IN LOVE Reading at the Triad, 6/5
LOST IN LOVE- a new musical based on the hit songs of Air Supply, which held an industry-only reading in April, will play again at the Triad Theatre on June 5. The cast includes Tony-nominated actor Constantine Maroulis ("Rock of Ages," "American Idol") and Andrea McArdle, Broadway's original "Annie." Graham Russell of Air Supply will be performing on guitar and Russell Hitchcock will also be in attendance.
McArdle will read the role of "Mrs. Rutledge," an aristocratic woman of a certain age who seems to know everything about everyone. McArdle will be performing one of the four new songs written for the show by Graham Russell.
Rounding out the cast are Beau Allen ("Best Little Whorehouse," "Jesus Christ Superstar"); Wren Harrington ("Phantom of the Opera"); William Blake ("American Idol" Season 4); Jamie Kolnick ("Velveteen Rabbit," "Little Mermaid" with Literally Alive Children's Theater); Daphne Thompson (TV: "Delocated," Fashion: Selena Gomez); Wade Walton ("I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change").
Air Supply, the hit-making duo of Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell, met performing in a two-year Aussie tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar."
The show features all the romance expected by Air Supply fans, along with some of their biggest hits: "All Out of Love," "Sweet Dreams," "Making Love Out of Nothing at All," all newly arranged by musical director Jonathan Ivey "Jivie" and Josh Freilich.
Set in the 1900s, the show has a "Downton Abbey" feel, and a man and a woman must decide to follow tradition or live for love.
