Spring may be the traditional time for romance, but the Manhattan Theatre Club has chosen fall to debut Romantic Poetry, a new musical co-written by two titans of the theater, Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley and composer Henry Krieger, best known for his work on Dreamgirls and Side Show. At a recent press presentation, TheaterMania got the chance to speak with the two men about their creation and get a sneak peek at a couple of numbers featuring the show's talented cast: Mark-Linn Baker, Jeb Brown, Jerry Dixon, Ivan Hernandez, Patina Miller, and Emily Swallow.
