The cast of the York Theatre Company's Roadside held its first rehearsal on Monday, March 26. The show is the second musical in the spring series, Musicals in Mufti: The Tom Jones Festival, to be presented at The York Theatre at Saint Peter's.
Roadside, to run March 30-April 1, is based on a play by Lynn Riggs and is a Southwestern love story of mythic proportions about two kissin', punchin', cussin', larger-than-life characters who refuse to settle down and be "house-broke" by the arrival of fences and laws. Roadside features book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt.
Directed by David Glenn Armstrong, the cast features original Roadside cast member Ryan Alexander, Erick Devine, Janine DiVita, Jamie LaVerdiere, Daniel C. Levine, Ed Watts and Nick Wyman.
