The Off-Broadway Premiere Of THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO HEATHER Begins Previews This June

Amas Musical Theatre (Donna Trinkoff, Artistic Producer) in association with Jim Kierstead, Broadway Factor, Linda Karn and David Bryant, will present the Off Broadway premiere of The Gospel According to Heather, a new musical with a book, music and lyrics by Paul Gordon. Performances are scheduled to begin at Theater 555 (555 West 42nd Street) on Wednesday, June 14 at 7:00pm with an official opening on Thursday, June 22nd at 7:00pm.

In The Gospel According to Heather, Heather Krebs just wants a boyfriend. But how can she even navigate her way through high school if she might be the New Messiah? A small town in Ohio grapples with politics, religion and teenage romance in this eclectic pop musical.

"Amas is delighted to be presenting this musical by Paul Gordon whose work I have admired for so long," says Donna Trinkoff. "With a very catchy score, The Gospel According to Heather raises timely questions about our search for truth in this crazy world."

"I'm thrilled to bring this youthful, energetic, and topical piece to the stage," said Jim Kierstead. "Heather encourages the audience to think for oneself and not follow others blindly, which is exactly the type of message we need these days. And Paul Gordon's edgy pop score is sure to please audiences of all ages."

Directed and choreographed by Rachel Klein, the cast features Lauren Elder (Hair), Badia Farha (School of Rock), Maria Habeeb, Darron Hayes (Notes From Now), Jeremy Kushnier (Atomic, Footloose), Maya Lagerstam, Carson Stewart, Brittany Nicole Williams (The Prom) and Wayne Wilson.
