Complete Casting Announced for SHELTER at 54 Below, Starring Jon Cryer

Feinstein's/54 Below is pleased to announce complete casting for their concert presentation of the short-lived musical Shelter. Joining the previously announced two-time Emmy Award-winner Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) are Sally Ann Triplett (The Last Ship, Finding Neverland) as Maud, Alyse Alan Louis (Amelie, Disaster) as Wednesday November, Jeff Kready (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Billy Elliot, Sunday in the Park With George) as Arthur, Lynne Halliday (Baby, I'm Still Getting My Act Together..., Inventing Mary Martin) as Gloria and Scott Clare as The Voice. The Tuesday, June 27th, 7:00pm and 9:30pm concerts will celebrate Nancy Ford's beautiful score and Gretchen Cryer's fascinating and timely book.

Two years before Ed Roberts introduced the first "personal computer", two incomparable writers conceived a prescient and original musical about love, technology and the things we can't control. Written by the acclaimed creators of I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It On The Road, Shelter opened on Broadway in 1973... and closed only 31 performances later. Meet Michael (Cryer). He's a television commercial writer who lives with his roommate Arthur (Kready). Michael and Arthur are best of friends, but there's just one catch... Arthur is a computer. Michael uses technology to perfect every part of his life. But there are some problems -- like love -- even computers can't solve.

Now, the musical returns to New York for only two performance at Feinstein's/54 Below. A starry cast will sing songs from the score, including material cut during workshops and previews. With a beautiful, eclectic score by Nancy Ford and a witty lyrics and a moving book by Gretchen Cryer, Shelter is a must-see intimate evening for musical theatre lovers.
