Photos: First look at Short North Stage's SURVIVING THE MOONLIGHT

A Short North Stage world premiere

Moonlight and madness collide in an original backstage musical fable about the hopes and dreams of life on the stage. Famed writer/director Jonathan Montgomery is trying out a new romantic Broadway musical about a bisexual menage-a-trois in old Constantinople in the 1870s. He's cast four people he loves as the leads, hoping the magic of theater will revive their careers and heal their troubled lives. Fate and psychic forces intervene to thwart his plans in unexpected ways, as the magic and madness of the stage does indeed transform lives, releasing the performers from the shadows of their past into creative futures. Blending the charm, wit and romance of traditional musical theater with the fresh irreverence and innovation of contemporary musicals, Surviving the Moonlight is a paean to the past, present and future of the Broadway musical.
