BroadwayWorld has learned that composer Scott Alan's HOME, which is aiming for Broadway in 2012-13 and features a book from Christy Hall, is set for new readings later this month.
Christiane Noll, Marla Mindelle and Rachel Potter will be joined by Mallory Bechtel and Phyllis Somerville for the industry-only readings, which are set for June 19 at the Snapple Theatre. Jen Bender directs with musical direction from Jason Howland.
In HOME, Katherine finally got away – from her home, her small Texas town, and, perhaps most importantly, her alcoholic mother. It is nine silent years later when Katherine, now 40, hears rumors that her mother Wendy might be dying of cancer. A reluctant Katherine, intent on putting the rumors to rest, returns to Texas.
Alan's other projects include the monthly series, 'Monday Nights, New Voices' at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre, which last year concluded its seven-year run. Alan also produced and directed the Neo2 Benefit Concert at the York Theatre. His latest album, 'LIVE,' a followup to 2010's 'What I Wanna Be When I Grow Up' and 2008's 'Keys,' is set for a June 26 release.
StylesFour Productions (John Styles & Dave Clemmons) and Orin Wolf present the HOME readings, which were cast by Telsey + Company, Rachel Hoffman CSA and are managed by Richards/Climan, Inc.
