Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Atlantic Theater's FOUND: A NEW MUSICAL
Atlantic Theater Company presents the first production of its 2014-2015 season - the world premiere new musical FOUND, directed by Lee Overtree, featuring a book by Tony Award nominee Hunter Bell ([title of show]) and Lee Overtree and original music and lyrics by Eli Bolin. Below, BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal!
FOUND will begin previews Thursday, September 18 and officially open Tuesday, October 14 for a limited, eight-week engagement through Sunday, November 9, 2014 Off Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company at the Linda Gross Theater (336 West 20th Street).
FOUND will feature a celebrated ensemble cast of ten including Christina Anthony, Nick Blaemire, Andrew Call, Daniel Everidge, Orville Mendoza, Betsy Morgan, Molly Pope, Danny Pudi, Sandy Rustin and Barrett Wilbert Weed.
FOUND is an original musical based on scores of surprising and eccentric discarded notes and letters that have been "found" in the real world by every-day people. Inspired by actual events, the show follows Davy (Blaemire) who, along with his two best friends, is lost and broke. When he finds a strangely revealing note on his windshield meant for someone else, it sparks an outlandish idea that finds him and his compatriots on a wild, comedic journey. This raucous and insightful new musical tells a story of ambition, betrayal and loyalty while celebrating the weirdness in all of us.
FOUND is based on the Found books and magazines by Davy Rothbart, with additional material created in collaboration with Story Pirates.
FOUND will feature choreography by Monica Bill Barnes, music direction by Matt Castle, orchestrations by Frank Galgano and Matt Castle, scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Theresa Squire, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by Ken Travis, projection design by Darrel Maloney and casting by Telsey + Company.
