Radio personality Valerie Smaldone will join the previously announced Sonya Carter, Renee Colvert, Priscilla Fernandez, and Berty Jay in Louise Roche's Girl Talk: The Musical, which will begin performances at the Times Square Arts Center on November 3 in anticipation of an official opening of November 14. Carter will direct the piece, which has been conceived by Tim Flaherty.

In the show, the fictional program Girl Talk is about to end its 10 years on the air -- and during its final broadcast, two sparring hosts, their favorite sex therapist guest and the show's neurotic producer learn something about the friendships they've developed.

Girl Talk will feature hit songs from such recording artists as Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, and Gretchen Wilson.

Smaldone has hosted, produced and created numerous nationally syndicated radio programs, and currently has her own show on WOR. She has also contributed to TheaterMania.com.
