THE GEORGE HAMILTON PROJECT Cast and Crew Begin Rehearsals

Cast members, George Hamilton (Chicago, La Cage aux Folles) , Maree Johnson, Todd Lattimore (42nd Street, La Cage aux Folles), Gabriela Garcia (Chicago) and Ashley Kate Adams (La Cage aux Folles) begin to develop a new work based on the life of stage and screen actor, George Hamilton at Pearl Studios in NYC May 14 through June 2, 2013.

The project features a book by David Hamilton, original music by Ryan Cantwell, additional music by "Spike" Hamilton, musical arrangements by Tom Kochan, choreography by Sam Viverito, and Associate Producer Jo-Ann Bethell. Tony Spinosa directs.

The iStar Theatre Lab is a three-week workshop designed to provide mentorship and guidance in a risk-free environment for emerging or established artists who wish to develop and nurture their work. Artists who participate in the iStar Theater Lab benefit from a day-on day-off rehearsal structure which allows each participant to nurture ideas and explore his or her own work without the pressure of producing new pages every day. After three weeks of intensive work, each project is presented to the iStar Theatre Lab community in a closed session. The presentation is followed by a feedback session led by the iStar Theatre Lab's Producing Artistic Director and creative team.

Founded in 2012 by Tony Spinosa, iStar Theatre Lab is dedicated to continuing the hearty and captivating presence of the theatre artist in our culture. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for the development of contemporary plays and musicals by engaging writers to incubate new works and ideas that engage and challenge diverse audiences. This "think tank" process allows ITL to develop theatrical experiences that speak about the world around us and inspire the artists as they develop their work.

On Sunday, May 19, stage and screen legend George Hamilton will headline the first-annual spring benefit gala event for iStar Theatre Lab, hosted by Todd Lattimore and directed by iStar Theatre Lab founder Tony Spinosa.

The iStar Theatre Lab Spring Gala is set for 7 p.m. at Broadway's popular new nightclub 54 Below (254 West 54th Street). Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for dinner. To purchase tickets visit
