Paul Gordon's new musical The Gospel According to Heather holds its first of two performances July 28 at 2:30 PM. Presented by Amas Musical Theatre, in association with Jim Kierstead and Broadway Factor, the workshop will hold a second performance July 29 at 1 PM, with both performances taking that stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center's Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre.
Following a two-week developmental lab, Rachel Klein directs and choreographs the show which stars Travis Artz (Awesome '80s Prom), Bradley Dean (Dear Evan Hansen), Badia Farha (School of Rock), Gabriella Green (Fiddler on the Roof national tour), Darron Hayes (Notes From Now), Bryson Jacobi Jackson, Nancy Opel (Into the Woods), Marissa Rosen (Bedbugs The Musical), Adi Roy (Jagged Little Pill), Chloe Gabriella McSwain, and Brittany Nicole Williams (The Prom).
In The Gospel According to Heather, Heather Krebs wants a boyfriend, but how can she navigate her way through high school if she might be the new Messiah? A small town in Ohio grapples with politics, religion, and teenage romance in the pop musical featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Tony nominee Gordon (Jane Eyre).
The stage manager is Morgan Holbrook. Casting is by Stephanie Klapper Casting.
“I’m delighted to be working with Paul Gordon whose work I have admired for so long,” says Amas Artistic Producer Donna Trinkoff. “The Gospel According to Heather is an offbeat pop musical that raises questions about feelings of 'otherness' and the dogma of religion. These are good questions for our time."
