NYC, Philadelphia Actors Partnering for Benefit Reading of URINETOWN at Theatre Horizon
Broadway stars and top Philadelphia talent come together for a one-night only concert reading of Urinetown: The Musical on Tuesday, August 18th at 7:30pm. The new collaboration series, 42nd and Main Concerts, aims to bring together the two theatre communities at Norristown's Theatre Horizon for an annual concert reading. This year's concert is pay-what-you-decide either before and/or after, and the recommended starting price is $25. Reservations are strongly encouraged, and all proceeds benefit Theatre Horizon. More information and reservations can be found online at www.theatrehorizon.org or by phone at (610) 283-2230.
Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic's Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America's greatest art forms.
The cast features 22 actors. 12 are from Broadway and 10 are from Philadelphia. The cast has collectively been in over 23 Broadway shows and tours and have performed with almost every theatre company in Philadelphia. The cast includes: Tamar Greene, Pamela Shandrow, Rick Desloge, Marina Lazzaretto, Geoffrey Bruen, Brendan Norton, Rusty Reynolds, Cassie Okenka, Michael Mahany, Sarah Schenkkan, Jaime Rosenstein, Christopher Russo, Rachel Camp, Lindsay Roberts, Kenny Lear, Steven P. Nemphos, Kristi Tomooka, Teri Furr, Sarah Braverman, Jennifer Pratt Johnson, Lyndsey Piecyk, and Isabella Russo.
"We are thrilled to be bringing a company of the finest Philadelphia and Broadway actors together for this inaugural collaboration. The 24 actors and musicians believe in Theatre Horizon's mission of bringing the highest quality art to Norristown and expanding its accessibility to all audiences," said Molly Braverman.
