The Ark, Starring Zmed and Golden, Docks After 8 Performances

The new off-Broadway musical The Ark, starring Adrian Zmed and Annie Golden, has docked early. The musical closed at the 37 Arts Theatre (450 W. 37th Street) on November 20th after 36 previews and 8 regular performances.

The Ark, which was previously seen at the NAMT Festival of New Musicals and at Seattle's Village Theatre, featured music by Michael McLean, and lyrics and book by McLean and Kevin Kelly.  It starred Zmed (Grease--original and revival, Blood Brothers, "T.J. Hooker") and Golden (The Full Monty, Assassins), as well as Marie-France Arcilla, D.B Bonds (Les Miserables), Justin Brill (All Shook Up), Julie Foldesi (Little Women), Janeece Aisha Freeman, Jacquelyn Piro (Under The Bridge, Les Miserables), Chuck Ragsdale and Rob Sutton (We Will Rock You). The musical, as the title suggests, was a re-telling of the biblical tale.

The show's purpose was "to take a fresh, contemporary look at the classic story of Noah by showing us the backstory of his family. Living inside the now infamous floating community to escape a drowning world, we see that when facing the challenges of life, we're all in the same boat," according to production notes.

The show's creative team comprised set designer Beowulf Boritt, costume designer Lisa Zinni, lighting designer Eric Haugan and sound designer Ryan Powers, as well as musical director and orchestrator Joe Baker.

Two by Two, a 1970 musical based on Clifford Odets' The Flowering Peach, starred Danny Kaye as Noah. The show featured music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Martin Charnin and a book by Peter Stone.
