Photo Coverage: DEAR EDWINA Opens Off-Broadway

Producer Daryl Roth presents the musical DEAR EDWINA, a holiday favorite with critics and audiences alike, returning for its third season to the DR2 Theatre (103 East 15th Street, NYC) for a limited run beginning Friday, December 17, 2010, playing through Friday, February 25, 2011. This musical comedy for all ages is written by Zina Goldrich (music) and Marcy Heisler (book and lyrics) and is directed by Timothy McDonald. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the opening and brings you photo coverage below.

DEAR EDWINA is a heartwarming show about the joys of growing up. The show's heroine, Edwina Spoonapple, is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby. Told through a show-within-a-show format, Edwina and her friends share wisdom on everything from
trying new foods to making new friends through clever, catchy and poignant songs. It's "Glee" for
kids, but adults will love it just as much as the children they bring!

DEAR EDWINA opened in December 2008 and was nominated for two Drama Desk Awards. The
show also played a limited run in December 2009. The full creative team returns for this
engagement and includes Steven G. Kennedy (Choreography), Court Watson (Scenic Design),
Kathryn Furst (Lighting Design), Theresa Squire (Costume Design) and Joe Kinosian (Music Director).

The cast of DEAR EDWINA includes Beth Cheryl Tarnow (Edwina), Katie Whetsell (Kelli), Judith Dry (Annie), Noah Zachary (Scott), Jared Picone (Bobby), David McDaniel (Billy), Christopher Brasfield (Swing/Dance Captain), Katy Vaughn (Swing), Martin Landry (Pianist/Joe Spoonapple) and Robin Lai (Drums/Myron Spoonapple).
