STARMITES Set To Return To NYC In 54 Below Live Concert, 7/19; Original Lead & Title Stars Announced

STARMITES is rocketing back to NYC!

Cult favorite and regional theater mainstay STARMITES is set to return to NYC for one night only in a special concert presentation this Summer supervised by the original writer and director, Barry Keating, according to a new listing at the official site here.

Hosted and narrated by original lead Liz Larsen, BroadwayWorld can exclusively confirm that the evening will feature Daniel Quadrino, Tyce Green and Dan Tracy as the titular Starmites, with even more casting to be announced soon.

The official description of STARMITES: IN CONCERT is as follows: "54 Below is proud to present STARMITES: IN CONCERT, a one-of-a-kind tribute to one of the most brave, boisterous, brazen, raucous and just plain far-out theatre experiences of the 1980s. Based on the 1989 Broadway musical of the same name with music and lyrics by Barry Keating and a book by Keating and Stuart Ross, STARMITES blasts off boasting an instant earworm score packed with delectable pop gems, epic ensemble sequences, and one of the most show-stopping diva showcases of all time at its center. Like no musical before or since, STARMITES is truly in a galaxy all its own. A wildly original and incomparably unique musical odyssey through time and space, STARMITES tells the compelling tale of a teenage girl obsessed with comic books, gifted with uncontrollable superpowers, who is transported to a colorful and imaginative fantasy world inhabited by a vast array of fiercely idiosyncratic characters fighting for power, prestige, and interplanetary control. Take a wild ride into the farthest regions of Innerspace with a score positively stuffed with thrills, shocks, surprises and unexpected delights, traversing the universe itself through the genres of rock, pop, rap, R&B, musical theatre, opera and even more. Without any doubt, STARMITES is spectacularly entertaining and unforgettably anomalous while also being way ahead of its time - its six 1989 Tony Award nominations for its Broadway production being no small achievement; not to mention its place as a mainstay of high schools and regional theaters across the country and the world. Now is the chance to experience one of Broadway's best-loved cult musicals in a whole new way, for one night only, live at 54 Below with the greatest stars visible in the vast stratosphere. Take the trip - and trip out! Featuring original cast member Liz Larsen as narrator and host for the evening, along with a starry assortment of talent both fresh and familiar to be announced soon. STARMITES: IN CONCERT has musical direction by Henry Aronson. Directed by Barry Keating & Pat Cerasaro."

STARMITES: IN CONCERT will be presented at 54 Below on July 19 at 7 PM and 9:30 PM.
