Oscar & Larsen are 'Such Good Friends' at NYMF, 9/28

The New York Musical Theatre Festival and Kim Vasquez/Gray Lady Entertainment, Inc. are pleased to present the world premiere of Such Good Friends, featuring Tony Award-nominees Liz Larsen and Brad Oscar, a musical comedy with book, music and lyrics by Noel Katz, direction by Marc Bruni, musical direction by Michael Horsley and choreography by Wendy Seyb.  Performances begins September 28 at the Julia Miles Theatre.

"Such Good Friends, recipient of a 2007 Anna Sosenko Trust grant, is an original musical comedy about three old friends-a comedienne, a director, and a writer having the time of their lives entertaining America every week. But the pressures of being funny live on television are child's play compared to the serious consequences of being forced to name names before the House Un-American Activites Committee," state press notes.

With Oscar and Larsen, featured in the cast are Joshua Campbell, Michael Thomas Holmes, Laura Jordan, Dirk Lumbard, Shannon O'Bryan, Jeff Talbott, Lynne Wintersteller and Blake Whyte.  The design team includes Jeff Hinchee (sets), Lisa Zinni (costumes), Jim Milkey (lighting), Nick Borisjuk (sound) and Teresa Hull (props).

New York has seen composer Noel Katz's Area 51, The Christmas Bride, On the Brink, Spilt Milk, Murder at the Savoy and The Heavenly Theatre, among others. Evenings of his songs have been presented at Don't Tell Mama, The Triad and The Donnell Library.

Performances are Friday September 28 at 8PM; Saturday September 29 at 1PM; Sunday September 30 at 4:30PM; Wednesday October 3 a 4:30 & 8PM; and Saturday October 6 at 1PM. 

All tickets are $20.   For reservations please call 212-352-3101 or visit to purchase tickets. The Julia Miles Theatre is located at 424 West 55th Street (between 9th & 10th Aves.)

Now in its 4th year, The New York Musical Theatre Festival is the largest musical theatre event in America.  NYMF premiered 99 new musicals during its first three seasons, with more than a dozen of these shows transferring to successful off-Broadway and regional productions.  Hailed as "the Sundance of Musical Theatre," NYMF is widely regarded as the premier source for new material and talent discovery.
