New Musical Reading Announced At Hudson Theatre
Book, Music & Lyrics by Sarah Fiete, PYM, a modern, female-driven musical adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket" receives an invitation-only reading on April 16, at 7PM, in Hudson Theatre's Dress Circle Lobby.
Told in an indie-rock style that combines power ballads with sea chanteys, this haunting adventure tale follows two young women, Pym and her best friend A.B, who wind up in the middle of a mutiny. They, along with the first mate Dirk Peters, must navigate mysterious islands, murderous sailors, and grim legends. But when you've been a sidekick your whole life, how do you become the protagonist of your own story?
Directed by Marella Martin Koch, with Robert Frost as Music Director, and Yue Liu as Co-Producer, the cast of PYM includes Maritza Bostic*, Molly Coyne*, Daniel Plimpton* as Pym, A.B., and Dirk Peters, respectively.
The PYM reading is on Monday, April 16th, 2018, at 7PM, in Hudson Theatre's Dress Circle Lobby. Industry members interested in attending should email: PYM.The.Musical@gmail.com.
