Broadway star Jim Newman ("Hands on a Hardbody", "Curtains", "Steel Pier") joins the cast of the new musical "The Paparazzi" for a reading this November 11th and 12th at 305 West 38th Street, Ripley Grier Studio Theater. Newman plays country music star Jimmy Maguire who falls prey to the paparazzi and their penchant for distorting the truth. The show has music and lyrics by Al Tapper and a book by Tony Sportiello. The reading on the 11th will be at 6pm, while the one on the 12th will be 1pm.
"The Paparazzi" just finished a spectacular run in Guadalajara, Mexico (helmed by legendary Mexican director Mauricio Cedeno) and is now looking to open in the United States.
The reading is directed by Tom Herman and also features Ken Jennings, L.R. Davidson, Al Bundonis, Andrew Foote, Paige Sommerer, Kelli Maguire, David Edwards, Dana Aber, Ezekiel Andrew, Marybeth Black, Raquel Cockrell, Grace Field, Ariane Ireland, Mary Lauren, Chris McCewell, Dan Van Why and Viet Vo. Music direction by Kristen Rosenfeld, arrangements by David Wolfson.
Tapper and Sportiello are also the creators of the musicals "National Pastime" and "All Aboard". "National Pastime" has played all over the country and Mexico, where it became the most award winning musical in the history of Guadalajara.
