THE CHOSEN ONE Will Hold Industry Reading This Month

THE CHOSEN ONE, a queer coming-of-age musical by Eli Cohen, is holding a private industry reading directed by Mack Brown (Pictures From Home, I Can Get It For You Wholesale) on Monday, November 6. THE CHOSEN ONE is produced by Abby Doermann and JW Theatrical, the Tony-nominated production company of Jamie Joeyen-Waldorf, with support from NoMAA and the Shubert Artistic Circle. 

THE CHOSEN ONE features book, music, and lyrics by Eli Cohen, an original story by Eli Cohen and Mo Yeh, arrangements & music supervision by Mo Yeh, music direction by Noah Landis, and is stage managed by Jamie Salinger.

Cast features Gwynne Wood (1776, Oklahoma! U.S. Tour, SUFFS Workshop), Mitchell Sink (Matilda, "All Too Well" The Short Film dir. by Taylor Swift, "The Crowded Room"), Ashlyn Maddox (Parade, Ride the Cyclone), Ellis Gage  (White Rose, James and the Giant Peach), Lauryn Hobbs (Life After, Papermill Playhouse's Rent), August Miller, Garnet Williams, Grant Evan, and Thomas Moro Sanders.

With a hummable pop-rock score that pays homage to classic musical theatre, THE CHOSEN ONE follows a trio of queer high schoolers who have created a spellbinding fantasy world to conjure what they're missing in their own lives. This hilarious, heart-warming, and heart-wrenching coming of age story reminds us that the people we love are the most magical things in the world.
