MostlyNEWmusicals Returns With Songs From The New Musical GLASS CEILINGS At Vitello's

Two and a half years ago, in March of 2020, GLASS CEILINGS, a new musical about women throughout history whose stories you don't know but should, had an opening weekend at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles that rocked audiences and reviewers alike, and was promptly shut down by the pandemic.

On August 24th, at Feinstein's at Vitello's, GLASS CEILINGS will take to the stage again for a one night only concert version of the show, presented by mostlyNEWmusicals, reuniting cast members from that production.

GLASS CEILINGS was the brainchild of Laura Watkins (Composer/Lyricist) and Nicholas David Brandt (Book). "GLASS CEILINGS is a show about women who fought to simply do what makes them fulfilled, despite gender," Laura Watkins says. "It is a fight that continues."

"While it was heartbreaking to work so long on a production that only got to have three performances, we're really proud of our show and are constantly asked when we're planning on bringing it back," says director Jessica Gardner. "The three of us on the creative team never gave up on the project, and we hope that this in-concert showcase of the material will breathe new life into it."

The talented cast for GLASS CEILINGS in Concert includes Matisha Baldwin, Jennifer Sun Bell, Amanda Kruger, Eileen Faxas, Jaime Lyn Beatty, Carrie Madsen, and Luke Adams, with characters ranging from the Goddess who created the world in one day to a senator hopeful to become the first female President. Tickets are available now at www.feinsteinsatvitellos.com.
