Matt Bogart plays the title role in The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' world premiere production of the new musical Ace, by Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor, directed by Stafford Arima. He is joined by partner and future wife, actress Jessica Boevers, who plays Elizabeth.
A high-flying new musical, Ace is filled with humor, heart and a dazzling new score! An unexpected gift and visits from a mysterious Army aviator named Ace send troubled 10-year-old Billy Lucas soaring from 1950s St. Louis on a journey around the world. Billy takes flight in his dreams, embarking on a series of heroic and haunting World War I and World War II adventures and discovering that the secrets of his past may hold the key to unlock the door to his future.
Ace is a co-production with Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, where it plays October 17-November 17 following its St. Louis premiere.
