MiG Ayesa (Burn the Floor, Rock of Ages) will lead the cast of Choices: A Rock Opera, a new musical about a driven but naïve lead singer of a 1980’s rock band, November 11-12 at the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center in Chappaqua, New York.
John Krupa, who wrote the music and lyrics, will also direct and star with Ayesa, joined by Nick Celio, Layla DaVias, Ronnie DiMaria, Annemarie Josephson, Christina Labrador, Joe Leo, and Dave O’Briskie, with Holly Block, Lielle Burk, Elana Cantor, Elle Randall, Moriah Ritchie, Katie Weinstein, and Mia Williams.
Choices: A Rock Opera has orchestrations by Artie Dillon, Mike Rosenman, Tommy Vinton, and Grammy-winning producer William “Bill” Wittman, who are also members of the band, rounded out by Hank DeCora, Jonathan Flaks, and Felix Guiffra.
Choices follows the lead singer's journey through roadblocks, dilemmas, and moral ambiguities. A mysterious man promises superstardom, while friends, fans, and a captivating woman show him a vast world beyond his passionate focus.
The creative team also includes music director Mike Rosenman, choreographer Holly Block, lighting designer Zachary Dulny, stage manager and assistant director Dani Masterson, sound designer Chris Grajewski, costume designer Dawn Levy, hairdresser Karen Catalano, assistant stage manager and props manager Peggy Ringwood, and audio engineer Jessica Klee.
Krupa executive produces with managing producer Dawn Levy; producers Chris Grajewski; Layla DaVias; Tommy Vinton; and Choices, A Rock Opera, LLC; and associate producer Rosenman.
Choices: A Rock Opera was presented as a workshop production in April 2022.
