Photo Flash: Go Inside The Industry Reading Of SHOOTING STAR: A Revealing New Musical

Article Pixel

Shooting Star had two industry presentations this past week at Shetler Studios in Penthouse 1. The brand-new musical has a book and concept by Florian Klein, music by Thomas Zaufke, and lyrics by Erik Ransom. The presentations were directed by Michael Bello (SUMMER), Music Directed by Alan Plado, Stage Managed by Ellie Handel, and General Managed by Evan Bernardin Productions.

The cast was lead by Daniel Beeman (Something Rotten), Christopher Johnstone (South Pacific), Adam Hyndman (Aladdin), and Jim Newman (Hands on a Hardbody), with Blake Zolfo (Kid Victory), Ashanti J'Aria, BJ Gruber, Jason Eno, Chris Hlinka, and Jason Rath.

SHOOTING STAR follows the story of Taylor, a young, failed Hollywood actor, who is rocketed to stardom as an adult performer Taylor "TNT" Trent. Through his eyes, we meet a cast of colorful characters: Mr. Sue, the domineering female director; James Grant, the aging adult star intent to hang on; and the wildly alluring Jesse Apollo, Taylor's first co-star. Everybody tells Taylor that pornography is a world for sex not love, yet his heart yearns for more. And as his star shoots across the sky, Taylor's world slowly comes crashing down. Will Taylor stay true to himself and his heart - or will he continue the hunt for fans, fame, and fortune?
