Photo Flash: First Look at INSOMNIA: A NEW MUSICAL at MITF

The Midtown International Theater Festival (MITF) presents Insomnia with music and lyrics by Charles Bloom and book by Theo Wolf. Ovi Vargas directs a cast of seven, including Philip Skinner, Jesse Manocherian*, Anette Michelle Sanders*, Lauren Lukacek*, Chris Brick*, Tyler Milliron*, and Dennis Holland*. Insomnia is being staged at the Main Stage, 312 West 36th Street in New York City from August 2-7, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

At the age of 38, Brad has had tremendous success writing for a hugely popular, young adult TV show. He has old friends who support him, a man who loves him and a distant father who wants to reconnect. By all accounts, Brad's life is great and yet, he can't help but feel that something is missing. Whatever it is, it's been keeping him up. As Brad tries to write and sell a new, semi-autobiographical TV pilot (one without any vampires, superheroes, ghosts or guns), he journeys through a sleepless night to look inward, examine his relationships and to ask himself important questions, like: what does it mean to be fulfilled? How do you balance the pursuit of money with the creation of art...and can a nightcap still be called a nightcap if it's 5 AM? Brad won't rest (literally) until he finds all his answers.
