Foster and Borle Headline Musical Reading at Joe's Pub, Jan. 30-Feb. 13

Theatre couple Sutton Foster and Christian Borle will headline a developmental reading of a new musical by Keith Bunin and Patty Griffin. The show, which is as of now without a title, will be presented at Joe's Pub (425 Lafayette St.) on Mondays, January 30th through February 13 at 7 PM.

The musical will feature a book by Bunin and music and lyrics by Griffin; it will follow Foster and Borle's characters as they take a road trip in an old Chevy. Michael Mayer ('night, Mother, Thoroughly Modern Millie) will direct the piece.

Foster, who currently stars in the Broadway-bound musical The Drowsy Chaperone in LA, won a Tony Award for her work in Thoroughly Modern Millie; she also netted Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Astaire Awards for her work. Recently, she received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Little Women, and has also appeared on Broadway in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Annie, Grease and Les Miserables as well as the Actors' Fund benefit concerts of Funny Girl and Chess.

Borle garnered a
Clarence Derwent Award for playing a myriad of roles in the current Broadway hit Spamalot. Other Broadway credits include Amour, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jesus Christ Superstar; he also appeared at Lincoln Center in William Finn's Elegies.

Bunin is a playwright and screenwriter whose plays include The World Over, The Principality Of Sorrows, The King Of Clocks and The Busy World is Hushed, which will be presented at Playwrights Horizon in the spring. Griffin is a Grammy-Award nominee whose albums include Impossible Dream and whose songs have been sung by The Dixie Chicks, Bette Midler, Emmy Lou Harris and others.
