Casting has been announced for the world premiere musical adaptation of A Room With a View, based on the novel by E.M. Forster with book by Marc Acito, music and lyrics by Jeffrey Stock and additional lyrics by Acito. Scott Schwartz will direct the production on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, March 2-April 8, with an opening on March 10.

In the musical, sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch meets freethinking George Emerson and for the first time glimpses a world of longing and passion she had never imagined. Upon her return to her corseted Edwardian life, Lucy must decide whether to yield to convention or give up everything she has ever known.

The musical will star Ephie Aardema (Lucy Honeychurch), Kyle Harris (George Emerson), Will Reynolds (Cecil Vyse), and Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba (Charlotte Bartlett).

The cast will also feature Glenn Seven Allen (Italiano, Albert), Etai BenShlomo (Freddy Honeychurch), Gina Ferrall (Miss Lavish, Mrs. Honeychurch), Jacquelynne Fontaine (Ragazza, Minnie), Edward Staudenmayer (Mr. Beeber), and Kurt Zischke (Mr. Emerson).

The creative team will include Boko Suzuki (music director), Heidi Ettinger (scenic design), Judith Dolan (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), Jon Weston (sound design), Bruce Coughlin (orchestrator), Michael Jenkinson (musical staging).
