Benny & Joon's Bryce Pinkham and Hannah Elless Sing and Talk Raisins

Star Claybourne Elder also previews the musical at Paper Mill Playhouse.

Paper Mill Playhouse is about to present the East Coast premiere of Kirsten Guenther, Mindi Dickstein, and Nolan Gasser's musical Benny & Joon, an adaptation of the whimsical 1993 film about two siblings and the Buster Keaton-like stranger who enters their lives and throws their carefully calibrated world off-kilter. The stars of the upcoming production — Claybourne Elder, Hannah Elless, and Bryce Pinkham — recently gave us a preview, performing three numbers from the show. Watch highlights in the video below, and check out the musical, which begins performances on April 4.
