After the success of previous readings in New York and Los Angeles, Mark Wolper, David Geha, Steve Sunshine, Spencer Proffer and Phillipa Sledge are proud to host a workshop production of the new musical comedy, Serrano – Poet, Lover…Hitman!, based on the French classic, Cyrano De Bergerac. Serrano is written by Madeline Sunshine with music by Robert Tepper and directed by Joel Zwick. The workshop presentations will take place on Monday, May 21st at 1PM and 4:30PM and on Tuesday, May 22nd at 2PM at Foxwoods Studios, Studio A (214 w. 43rd St).
Serrano D'Angelo (James Barbour) is a street-smart renaissance man, and mob enforcer, who's recruited by the notorious Don Reyo to polish his crude and foul-mouthed nephew, Vinnie. Serrano must teach Vinnie how to be charming enough to seduce the beautiful daughter of a judge who sits on a case involving Don Reno; if Vinnie succeeds, the judge would have to recuse himself from the case. But soon after Serrano accepts the Don's challenge, he learns that the girl Vinnie must seduce is none other than Rosanna, the love of his life.
In addition to James Barbour, the amazingly talented cast includes: Chad Doreck, Brian Beacock, Michael Nouri, Jessica Rush, Michelle Duffy, Eddie Korbich, Paul Romero, Jamison Stern, Jennifer Simard, Jay Winnick, John Schuck, Michael Farina and Ray McLeod.
