Glory Days Opens Tonight At Circle In The Square!
Glory Days, a new musical by Nick Blaemire (Music and Lyrics) and James Gardiner (Book) opens tonight Tuesday, May 6, 6:45PM at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50th Street, NYC). Previews began on Tuesday, April 22.
Glory Days received its world premiere at DC's Signature Theatre (January 2008) in a sold-out, critically-lauded production, directed by Signature Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer (Broadway's Putting It Together), who recreates his staging for Broadway. Glory Days marks Signature's first direct-to-Broadway transfer.
The production features the acclaimed Signature cast: Steven Booth (Will), Andrew C. Call (Andy), Adam Halpin (Skip), and Jesse JP Johnson (Jack). Glory Days marks the Broadway debuts for Booth, Halpin and Johnson.
Glory Days is the story of four best friends who reunite one year after high school graduation, only to find out how much they have grown apart. As they attempt to understand each other's differences, they soon realize that nothing can compare to the Glory Days of high school when life was simpler.
At 23, Nick Blaemire (Music and Lyrics) is making his Broadway debut this season both as a songwriter with Glory Days and as a performer in the ensemble of Cry-Baby. James Gardiner (Book), 24, is making his debut as a book writer with Glory Days.
Led by director Eric Schaeffer, the creative team also includes James Kronzer (scenic design), Sasha Ludwig-Siegel (costume design), Mark Lanks (lighting design) and Peter Hylenski (sound design). Vocal arrangements are by Nick Blaemire and Jesse Vargas. Music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations are by Jesse Vargas.
Glory Days is produced by John O'Boyle, Ricky Stevens, Richard E. Leopold and Lizzie Leopold, Max Productions, Alan Mingo, Jr. and Broadway Across America in association with Signature Theatre.
