Photo Flash: First Look at NYMF's THE SNOW QUEEN with Eryn Murman, Jane Pfitsch and John Michael Presney

The audiences have warmed up to THE SNOW QUEEN, a rousing new musical in The New York Musical Theater Festival (NYMF). Photos from the New York City premiere at the Alice Griffin theater tell the wondrous and fantastical story.

This current musical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson fantastical coming-of-age adventure follows Gerda's journey through an unimaginably dangerous and whimsical world filled with singing flowers, a chattering crow and a talking river to save her friend, Kai. This Snow Queen is not your average bedtime story. An original pop rock score suffused with urban steam punk flair turn this traditional fairy tale into an epic quest.

Eryn Murman (Spring Awakening) takes us on the journey as the heroine Gerda, with Jane Pfitsch (Cabaret) as the Snow Queen and John Michael Presneyas Kai. Rounding out the cast are Lauren Cipoletti (Princess/Robber Girl), Janice Engelau (Flower/Ensemble), Jason Hite (The Crow/Ensemble), Summer C. Latimer (Flower/Ensemble), Lee Ann Payne (Co-Choreographer/Ensemble), and Reggie D. White (Troll/Reindeer).

Directed by Rick Lombardo with a book by Kirsten Brandt & Rick Lombardo, music by Haddon Kime, lyrics by Kirsten Brandt, Haddon Kime and Rick Lombardo, with additional music by Rick Lombardo. The production team includes Francis Nelson McSherry (costume design), David Lee Cuthbert (lighting/projection design), Haddon Kime and Rick Lombardo (sound design), Anna Ebbeson (musical director), Delores Duran-Cefalu (music supervisor) and Matthew Stern (production manager).

This new musical adaptation of The Snow Queen will have its final performances at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center on Saturday, July 19th at 11am and Sunday, July 20th at 8pm.
