Butler and Olivo Join Starry Cast of NYMF Party Come Here

Kerry Butler and Karen Olivo will join the previously-announced Hunter Foster, Terrence Mann, Fyvush Finkel and Kaitlin Hopkins in Party Come Here, playing from September 25th through September 28th at the TBG Theatre (312 W. 36th St.) as one of the "invited" musicals of the New York Musical Theatre Festival.

Party Come Here features a book by Daniel Goldfarb (Modern Orthodox), music by David Kirshenbaum (Summer of '42), and lyrics by David Kirshenbaum.  "A nervous groom, a statue of Christ, and a 500-year-old Jewish caveman converge to make miracles happen during a tropical storm o­n o­ne magical night in Rio...Mistaken identity, spirituality, hope, family, sex—all set to irresistible Latin rhythms," state press notes.  Foster, Mann Finkel and Hopkins were seen in a reading of the musical at least year's NAMT festival.

Kerry Butler--soon to be seen in The Opposite of Sex at the Williamstown Theatre Festival--starred on Broadway in Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables.  Off-Broadway credits include Bat Boy and Miracle Brothers.  Olivo has played Faith in Brooklyn and both Maureen and Mimi in Rent.
