The York Theatre Company has announced a staged reading of the new musical Monet as part of its Developmental Reading Series. The musical, featuring music and lyrics by Carmel Owen, and book by Joan Ross Sorkin, will play two performances on Friday, March 8, at 2:30pm and 7pm at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's.

Monet, according to a press release, "is inspired by the remarkable life of Claude Monet and the price he ultimately paid for his art. Think mystery, romance and revolution, and one painting that changed everything."

Alan Paul will direct, with music direction by Eugene Gwozdz. The creative team includes Joe Mohan (associate music director), Lacey Erb (projection designer), Lucrecia Briceno (lighting designer), Carol Sullivan (production stage manager), and Ryan Ross (assistant stage manager).
