An industry workshop of Grammy winner Edie Brickell's new musical 38 Minutes will be held in Manhattan September 27-28.
Directed by Josh Rhodes, the cast will feature Tony nominee Carmen Cusack (Bright Star) with Philippe Arroyo (& Juliet), Jonah Ho’okano (Uncoupled), Sarah Hunt (The Last Ship), Gizel Jiménez (Wicked), Mynor Luken (Chicago), Arianna Rosario (On Your Feet!), Marco Zunino (Chicago), and Tony winner Faith Prince (Guys and Dolls).
The original musical spotlights a family on vacation in Hawaii in January 2018 when the nuclear missile alert turns their lives upside down, revealing more about each other than they’d previously known.
The workshop, which follows a developmental session in Los Angeles earlier this year, will also have musical direction and arrangements by Rob Berman and creative consultation by Eric Dietz. The production stage manager is Tripp Phillips with casting by JZ Casting and general management by LDK Productions.
Brickell collaborated with Steve Martin on the Tony-nominated Bright Star. Her new musical is inspired by her experience living through the aforementioned false alarm nuclear missile alert in Hawaii.
Lisa Dozier is the executive producer. For more information, email [email protected].
