Staged readings of Mozart: Her Story—The Musical will be held August 29 at 2 PM and August 30 at 1 PM at Manhattan's Open Jar Studios.
Directed by Kelly Devine with music direction by Gregory Nabours and dramaturgy by Colette Freedman, the cast will be led by Kennedy Caughell (Paradise Square), Justin Matthew Sargent (Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark), Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde), Angel Reda (Chicago) Lana Gordon (Chicago), John Cariani (The Band’s Visit), Jonathan Mousset (Jersey Boys), Jelani Remy (Ain’t Too Proud–The Life and Times of the Temptations), and N’Kenge (Caroline, or Change) with Bethany Ann Tesarck (Diana), Corey Mach (Kinky Boots), Grace Field (Hercules), Ambrose Martos (Across The Universe), Ashley Fuller (Opium), Bethaney Wellings-Davies (Cabaret), Jessica Jaunich (Bat Out Of Hell), and Tess Primack (Fiddler on the Roof).
Mozart: Her Story, which features a book and lyrics by Tegan Summer and music and additional lyrics by Nabours, concerns Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's sister Nan Mozart, a brilliant composer who struggles to be seen and heard in the male-dominated 18th century court. The musical marries Mozart’s classics with over 20 originals by Summer and Nabours.
Timeless Stage & Screen, Amas Musical Theatre, and The Amas Musical Theatre Lab present the reading, part of the ongoing Amas Musical Theatre Lab, a development series for writers, lyricists, and composers to mount public readings of their new musicals.
ShowTown Theatricals is the general manager, and the stage manager is Jeff Brancato. Summer produces.
