"A cast of ten. Two stage managers. Four musicians. 4 backstage hands. Four understudies...and more. I know there is no way that Romeo & Bernadette can pay its way off-Broadway," declared producer Eric Krebs. "However, with over two dozen favorable reviews, continued standing ovations and cheering at curtain call, hundreds of smiling, happy faces coming out of the theater... brilliant performances by both newcomers, as well as seasoned stage performers, beautifully presented music...We need this joyous musical now! How can I not move this? I have spent my career jousting at windmills. I won't stop now."
It was also announced today that the cast of Romeo & Bernadette: A Musical Tale of Verona and Brooklyn will head into the studio to set down tracks for a cast recording on Tuesday, February 18, 2020.
