GLIMPSES OF THE MOON Celebrates 10th Anniversary With An Industry Reading
Marc Bruni (Beautiful) will direct an industry reading of Glimpses of the Moon, a sparkling romantic musical based on one of Edith Wharton's rare comedies, Monday, March 11th, 6PM at The Players Club on Gramercy Park. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the premiere, this reading is an opportunity for producers and audiences to fall in love with this romantic and funny, 6 character, 90-minute musical.
Set in 1922, an age of anything but innocence, Glimpses of the Moon follows the jazzy whirl of Manhattan and Newport society.
Alex Finke (Come From Away) and Ben Jacoby (Beautiful) star as the popular but penniless friends, Susy and Nick, who devise a clever scheme to live beyond their means. They'll marry and live off the wedding gifts, while they help one another trade up to suitable millionaires. The reading cast also includes Julia Knitel (Letter to Harvey Milk) and real life couple Ken Land (The Scarlet Pimpernel; Promises, Promises) and Elizabeth Ward Land (Amazing Grace, Scandalous) as the New York society Vanderlyns. Casting by Geoff Josselson. Book & Lyrics by Tajlei Levis. Music by John Mercurio.
Glimpses of the Moon debuted in January 2008 at The Oak Room of the Algonquin, directed by Marc Bruni, with choreography by Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Tootsie), starring Patti Murin (Frozen) and received rave reviews. Duncan Pflaster of BroadwayWorld.com, called Glimpses, "One of the best new musicals I've seen in ages. I'd love to see it move on and have a bigger life. Highly recommended for those who love Wharton, the Jazz Age or plain old great musical theatre."
Sharon Carr and Associates produced an extended run of Glimpses at the Oak Room. MetroStage in Alexandria produced the theatrical premiere and Georgia Ensemble Theatre produced the regional premiere and the cast album CD. Glimpses is published by Samuel French and has had licensed productions around the country and in Brazil.
