Lost In Love, the new musical based on the hit songs of Air Supply, played the Triad Theatre on June 5, the first live follow-up to an industry-only reading in April of this year. Andrea McArdle and Constantine Maroulis returned to star in this latest installment of the production and BroadwayWorld was on hand to capture some of the musical highlights.
Lost In Love is set in England in the early 1900s and has a Downton Abbey feel. As royalty and emerging American wealth collide, a man and a woman must decide to follow tradition or live for love.
McArdle read the role of "Mrs. Rutledge,” an aristocratic woman of a certain age who seems to know everything about everyone. Maroulis played a young prince, Eduardo, whose intentions come into question as he pines for "Katherine” played by Kristin Piacentile ("When Midnight Strikes,” Off B'way, "Chautauqua!” at The Public) while wooing her best friend "Margo” played by Lynn Craig ("Cats” national tour, "The Legend of Julie Taymor” – Fringe). Margo's billionaire industrialist stepbrother Armitage, played by Paul Jackel ("The Secret Garden” on Broadway, "The Fantasticks,” Off Broadway) has an eye for antiquities and for Katherine. The case was also joined by Nicholas Rodriguez.
Graham Russell, who composed many of Air Supply's hits, wrote written four new songs for the musical and is working hands-on with book writer Melissa Bell.
