Ludlow Ladd, with Champlin, Etc., Plays Dec. 10-11

Ludlow Ladd, described as a "wonderfully warped" holiday musical, will be presented for three benefit performances in December.  This staged concert will raise monies for The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Ludlow Ladd is the prequel to Charlotte Sweet
 : the 1982 off-Broadway hit for which librettist Michael Colby and composer Gerald Jay Markoe received Drama Desk Award nominations.  This marks the premiere of an expanded version of "Ludlow," which has been produced successfully on radio (WBAI-FM) and regionally. 

Mixing elements of Charles Dickens, Gilbert & Sullivan, and Fractured Fairytales, Ludlow Ladd "tells of an orphan searching for a home on Christmas Eve.  The musical will star Broadway's Stephen Berger (The Pajama Game, Into the Woods); Donna Lynne Champlin (Sweeney Todd, Hollywood Arms); Allison Fischer (Lestat, Night of the Hunter); Kimberly Jajuan (Ragtime, Marie Christine ); Michael Mahany (High School Musical); Andrew Rasmussen (York's Take Me Along);  Ben Rauch (TV- Ed as 'Eugene', Emerald Man); and Barbara Rosenblat (Secret Garden, Lucky Stiff).  Also featured are the "Ludlow Ladd Kooky Carolers:" Joe Berardi, David Janes, Jayson Kerr, David Ordanis, Susan Peirez, Stacie Perlman, Virginia Tuller, and Nancy Zoppi," as press notes state. 

Sara Louise Lazarus (MAC and BackStage Bistro Award-winning Director) will direct.  Paul Staroba (assistant musical director, Grey Gardens) will be musical director, Michele Reisch will design costumes, and Daryl Eisenstein is casting.  Producing is ShaRell Productions (Sandi Durell & Shari Upbin).   [You can read more aboutLudlow Ladd at its website: http://hometown.aol.com/ludlow29/ludlowladd.html ]
