WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The 2003 cult favorite musical Zanna, Don't! returns to New York for one night only for a very special concert reuniting the original Off-Broadway cast and benefiting the Hetrick-Martin Institute. This musical fairy tale is set in a world where gay is the norm, the chess team is cool, and the football players are dorks. When the students put on an original musical about the hot-button issue of straights in the military (because if musical theater won't address important political issues, what will?), the opposite-sex leads realize their true feelings for each other and all hell breaks loose in the quiet town of Heartsville. It's up to magical matchmaker Zanna to put things right and bring love to all — including himself! The concert will feature original Off-Broadway cast members Anika Larsen, Darius Nichols, Amanda Ryan Paige, Jai Rodriguez, Enrico Rodriguez, Robb Sapp, and Shelley Thomas. Presented by Adam Grosswirth and Jonathan Tessero (who will also music direct), both members of the original production staff.
