Bryce Ryness (Fly by Night) and Pearl Sun (If/Then) will star in Long Story Short, a new musical by Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda of the band GrooveLily, at 59E59 Theaters. Performances begin on February 28 and run through March 29. Kent Nicholson directs.

The two-character work is adapted from David Schulner's play An Infinite Ache. The plot follows a pair of twentysomethings, one Jewish, one Asian-American, from their first date through their 50-year marriage. The creative team will be announced in the coming months.

Milburn and Vigoda are also the authors of the musicals Striking 12, Sleeping Beauty Wakes, and Ernest Shackleton Loves Me, among others. The New York premiere of Long Story Short is presented by Prospect Theatre Company after runs at TheatreWorks and the Pittsburgh City Theatre.
