Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Lauren Kennedy and Jarrod Emick in Flat Rock's ZELDA: AN AMERICAN LOVE STORY
Flat Rock Playhouse is teaming with veteran Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (For The Glory, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Wonderland) and lyricist Jack Murphy on a brand new "jazz age" musical set in Asheville, North Carolina. Loosely based on F. Scott Fitzgerald, the hot Jazz Age novelist who wrote "This Side of Paradise," "The Beautiful and Damned," "The Great Gatsby," "Tender Is the Night" and "The Last Tycoon," and his wife, Zelda. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at Lauren Kennedy and Tony Award Winner, Jarrod Emick. Check out the photos below!
This new musical with choreography by Tony Award Winner Andy Blankenbuehler and arrangements by Ron Melrose of Jersey Boys Fame, tells the story of a young, beautiful southern belle who meets the handsome, twenty-one year old author at a dance on July 4, 1917. Starring Broadway's Lauren Kennedy and Tony Award Winner Jarrod Emick, Zelda: An American Love Story is ultimately about the two lovers’ rise, their fall, and their almost divine desire to rise once more… together. With a score that nods to Porter and Gershwin and a book that is captivating until the final curtain, Zelda is an old-fashioned musical told in a completely new, contemporary way. See it at FRP first, before Broadway.
