Randy Redd (Allegro), Jeremy Cohen (Master Class), and Stephen Zinnato (New Girl in Town) will join the previously announced Marie Zamora in Alain Boublil's Manhattan Parisienne, a new work premiering at 59E59 Theaters under the direction of Graciela Daniele. The production will play a limited engagement from December 18-January 4.
Manhattan Parisienne is a story of two struggling artists: a French actress/singer (played by Zamora) and a Manhattan musician (Redd) who has a history with Paris. Connected by music, the two embark on a surreal journey through New York on a cold rainy evening. The play with music features excerpts of tunes from the French and American songwriters Jacques Brel, George and Ira Gershwin, Michel Legrand, Cole Porter, and Charles Aznavour, among others.
Boublil is the librettist and lyricist of the musicals La Révolution Française, Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, Martin Guerre, and The Pirate Queen. He has won two Tonys and two Grammys. Zamora, his wife, originated the role of Cosette in the Paris production of Les Misérables and frequently performs with Michel Legrand.
