Goodspeed Musicals Announces Three Musicals for the Terris Theatre
Sarna Lapine will direct the musical You Are Here by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill.
Goodspeed Musicals has announced three musicals joining the 2018 Terris Theatre season.
First will be You Are Here, a production featuring music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and a book by Brian Hill, running May 18-June 10. Directed by Sarna Lapine, the story is described as follows: "July 20, 1969...a man walks on the moon...and Diana, a Chicago housewife, walks out of her comfortable suburban life. Suddenly alone in a fast-changing world, she finds a series of unexpected encounters can turn one small step into a giant, life-changing leap."
The next production will be a new musical adaptation of the classic love story Cyrano, running August 3-September 2. Adapted and directed by Erica Schmidt from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, Cyrano will feature music by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National, and lyrics by Carin Besser and Matt Berninger of the National.
A Connecticut Christmas Carol then returns to the Terris Theatre for its second holiday season. The show will receive further development with hopes to move the production to the Goodspeed in the future as an annual tradition. Hunter Foster directs the production, which features a book by L.J. Fecho and music and lyrics by Michael O'Flaherty. Performances are set to run November 30-December 30.
