TAKE TWO Set To Run At The Northern Stage 4/22 - 5/17
Broadway veterans Tracy McDowell, Mary Gutzi, Dan Petrotta, and Drew Taylor star in the world premiere of the new musical, Take Two, written by Brett Schrier and Catherine Doherty at Northern Stage, opening April 24, 2009.
Subtitled “Your Second Chance is Waiting,” the show, directed by Founding Artistic Director Brooke Ciardelli, follows two men and two women as they jump back into the dating world after each has lost his or her “true love.” From tender moments of new self-awareness to internet dating disasters and laugh-out-loud social predicaments, Take Two appeals to anyone who has ever dipped a toe into the swirl of the search for love.
Schrier's remarkable score includes such memorable hits as the hilarious 60's The New 40, Death Of A Date, Starting All Over Again, Just Hit Send, You Can't Judge A Profile By The Picture, and Second Soul. The music from Take Two has been performed at various venues throughout the country to great success and popularity.
The official website for Take Two is www.taketwothemusical.com.
Tracy McDowell, with the powerhouse voice, comes from the Broadway production of Rent and the subsequent tour and filmed Broadway rendition. International star Mary Gutzi appeared on Broadway in Les Misérables and in the American Premiere of Ragtime as Emma Goldman.
Theater, film and television star Drew Taylor's Broadway credits include Sweet Smell of Success with John Lithgow, The Secret Garden and the 20th Anniversary production of Annie. Dan Petrotta shone in Broadway’s A Tale of Two Cities and on the Carnegie Hall stage in “Mother Russia.”
