Photo Flash: Edward Hibbert Visits MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET
Broadway and Television veteran Edward Hibbert stopped by to visit the cast of the Off-Broadway acclaimed new musical Midnight at the Never Get, with book, music, and lyrics by Mark Sonnenblick, co-conceived by Sam Bolen, by arrangement with Visceral Entertainment and Mark Cortale Productions. Directed by Max Friedman, with choreography by Andrew Palermo, and music direction/arrangements by Adam Podd, the cast features Sam Bolen, Jeremy Cohen, and Jon J. Peterson. Now in performance through Sunday, November 4, 2018 at The York Theatre Company.
A brand new musical by York NEO writer and 2018 Jonathan Larson Award winner Mark Sonnenblick, Midnight at the Never Get tells the story of singer Trevor Copeland and songwriter Arthur Brightman, who have the perfect New York romance. That's swell. In 1965, it's also against the law. So, in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight-a nightclub act where Trevor sings Arthur's love songs with their male pronouns intact. But as the lovers hurtle toward the end of the decade, they find themselves caught in a passion they can't control and a political revolution they don't understand. Featuring a seductive score inspired by the Great American Songbook, Midnight at the Never Get is a sultry meditation on identity, memory, and enduring romance.
