Photo Coverage: 'Glory Days' Meet & Greet

On April 10, 2008 Glory Days had its press preview meet and greet. Glory Days, a new musical by Nick Blaemire (Music and Lyrics) and James Gardiner (Book) will open at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50th  Street, NYC) on Tuesday, May 6 at 6:45PM.  Previews will begin on Tuesday, April 22 at 8PM.

Glory Days received its world premiere at DC's Signature Theatre (January 2008) in a sold-out, critically-lauded production, directed by Signature Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer (Broadway's Putting It Together), who will recreate his staging for Broadway. Glory Days marks Signature's first direct-to-Broadway transfer.

The production will feature the acclaimed Signature cast: Steven Booth (Will), Andrew C. Call (Andy), Adam Halpin (Skip), and Jesse JP Johnson (Jack).


Glory Days is the story of four best friends who reunite a year after high school graduation, only to find how much they have grown apart.  As they attempt to understand each other's differences, they soon realize that nothing can compare to the glory days of high school when life was simpler.  Set to a vibrant score, GLORY DAYS is a witty, unflinching look at four guys who refuse to be defined by generational stereotypes as they struggle to find their place in the world.


Led by director Eric Schaeffer, the creative team also includes James Kronzer (scenic design), Sasha Ludwig-Siegel (costume design), Mark Lanks (lighting design) and Peter Hylenski (sound design).  Vocal arrangements are by Nick Blaemire and Jesse Vargas.  Arrangements and orchestrations are by Jesse Vargas.  

Glory Days will be produced by John O'Boyle, Ricky Stevens, Richard E. Leopold and Lizzie Leopold, and Max Productions in association with Signature Theatre.

Tickets are $97.50 (includes $1.50 facilities fee) and are available from Telecharge at 212-239-6200, online at www.telecharge.com, or in-person at the Circle in the Square Theatre box office (235 West 50th Street, between Broadway & 8th Avenues, NYC) beginning March 30.
