BWW TV: The Cast of the New Musical 'ROLLER COASTER HIGHWAY' Meets the Press!

The cast and crew of the "rock and rolling" new musical ROLLER COASTER HIGHWAY met the press at New York City's Chelsea Studios and was there!

'ROLLER COASTER HIGHWAY' is aiming to hit Broadway in May 2009 following an out-of-town tryout in Anchorage, Alaska.

The "creative team" includes famed director Larry Dorman, legendary musical director Steven Baxter and dance maven LaLa DeShaun. The trio bring every fiber of their theatrical talents to ROLLER COASTER HIGHWAY, a musical that hopes to "ride right into your heart". 

The cast includes Broadway favorites Will Chase, Andy Karl and Bat'ya Rosen. 

"The Battery's Down," the hit online television series, returned for a second season this month. Filmed in a style similar to "Curb Your Enthusiasm" or "The Office," "The Battery's Down" chronicles The Life of young actor Jake Wilson in New York City. Each twenty-minute, two-part episode will premiere at 12:01AM the first of every month. Tune in to watch the fabulously fabricated ROLLER COASTER HIGHWAY's "ride" on "The Battery's Down" this season.

With a theme song composed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Edges, Johnny and the Sprites), each episode will be written by Wilson and will also feature a new song by a talented musical theatre writer or writing team, including Laurence O'Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy!), David Kirshenbaum (Vanities, Summer of '42), Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk (The Unauthorized Biography of Samantha Brown), Josh Salzman and Ryan Cunningham (I Love You Because), Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary (Secondhand Lions), and Ryan Scott Oliver and Kirsten A. Guenther (Alive at Ten).

The second season is helmed by director/choreographer Connor Gallagher (Perez Hilton Saves The Universe).

Making return appearances as series regulars for the season are Tony Award winner John Gallagher, Jr. (Spring Awakening, Rabbit Hole), Tyler Maynard (The Little Mermaid, Altar Boyz), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Mary Poppins, Spelling Bee), Cortney Wolfson (Legally Blonde, Les Miserables), Dani Spieler (Legally Blonde), Nina Sturtz, Ana Nogueira (Perez Hilton Saves The Universe) and more.

Viewers can also expect to see Will Chase (Story of My Life, Rent), Brynn O'Malley (Wicked, Hairspray), Andy Karl (9 to 5, Legally Blonde), Deidre Goodwin (A Chorus Line, 30 Rock), Carly Jibson (Cry-Baby, Hairspray), Dana Steingold (Spelling Bee), Andrew Arrington (The Lion King, Spelling Bee), Eric Roediger (Spelling Bee), Jay Russell (Our Town), Sas Goldberg, and Kyle Harris appear on the second season as well as many more to come!
