The new pop-rock musical Only Human closes October 28 at Theatre St. Clements. The musical comedy re-imagines the story of Jesus and Lucifer in a contemporary workplace, and stars Gary Busey as God (also known as The Boss).
Mike Squillante, who is also the show's composer and lyricist, plays Lou (Lucifer), Kim Steele (Summer: The Donna Summer Musical) is Maggie, and Evan Maltby (New York Musical Festival) is J.C.
Only Human, which began performances Off-Broadway October 8 and officially opened October 21, features a book by Jess Carson, and music and lyrics by Squillante, based on a story by Jesse Murphy and Squillante. The production is directed by NJ Agwuna and choreographed by Josue Jasmin. Adrià Barbosa is music director.
