Menzel, Orfeh, Karl, Etc. Set for Romantic Poetry Benefit

LAByrinth Theater Company announce dcasting today for Romantic Poetry: The Musicale, a special one-night-only event to benefit LAByrinth with music by Tony Award and Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls) and book and lyrics by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Playwright John Patrick Shanley (Doubt). 

The cast will include Carlo Alban, Anastasia Barzee, Kim Director, Bill Evans, Ivan Hernandez, Andy Karl, Mark Linn-Baker, Chris McGarry, Idina Menzel, Patina Miller and Orfeh. All cast subject to availability.

The show will take place Monday, May 21st at 7:00pm at The Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street).

"Shanley and Krieger join forces to topple the musical theater form with Romantic Poetry, a soaring love song to impossible romance. In the words of the creators, 'You will laugh, you will cry, you will shake your head. You will embrace your fellow audience members, and gasp: 'Thank God we were here!' You will make friends for life. The show will improve marriages, turn casual dates into torrid assignations, and reduce cynics to autograph hounds!  Be there or face years of loneliness!,'" state press materials.

This one-night benefit performance will give the audience a chance to take a sneak peek at a new musical that is scheduled to premiere at New York Stage & Film this summer.

Priority tickets are $500 (includes VIP after party, priority seating, $450 tax-deductible) and tickets $150 ($125 tax-deductible).  To RSVP, please call 212.513.1014 or email
