Tony nominee Sherie Rene Scott will return to Broadway in her musical Everyday Rapture, to begin previews at the Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre on April 19, with an opening on April 29. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, with choreography by Michel Lynch. It is scheduled to run through July 11.

The loosely autobiographical musical, co-written with Dick Scanlan, was presented for an extended run at Second Stage Theatre in the late spring/early summer of 2009. The cast -- all of whom are reprising their roles from the Second Stage run -- also includes Eamon Foley, Lindsey Mendez, and Betsy Wolfe.

The Everyday Rapture cast album will be released on iTunes on April 27 from Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records and be available in the theater that date, with a store release set for June. It includes songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Supremes, Tom Waits, U2, and Judy Garland.

The creative team also includes Tom Kitt (orchestrations & arrangements), Michael Rafter (music supervision), Marco Paguia (music direction), Christine Jones (sets), Tom Broecker (costumes), Kevin Adams (lights), Brian Ronan (sound) and Darrel Maloney (projections).

Scott's New York credits include The Little Mermaid, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, for which she received a Tony Award nomination, Aida, Landscape of the Body, The Last 5 Years, and Debbie Does Dallas.
