Derek Keeling will star in the new musical Connect/Disconnect, which will play the June Havoc Theatre, July 21-August 2 as part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival. Rick Jacobs will direct.

Set in London and New York, this contemporary musical asks what does it take to connect to people when we have a million ways to communicate but are losing the skill to talk face-to-face? The show features music by Jan-Erik Sääf and a libretto by Owen Robertson.

Keeling was a Top 3 finalist on the NBC reality series Grease: You're the One That I Want, and later took over the role of Danny Zuko in the Broadway revival of Grease. His additional credits include A Tale of Two Cities and All Shook Up.
