Writer Jill Santoriello brings the developmental lab of her new musical It Happened in Key West to the Fulton Opera House in Fulton, Pennsylvania August 25–27.
Having composed the book, music, and lyrics for Broadway’s A Tale of Two Cities, Santoriello will pen music and lyrics and co-write the book to this new musical with Jeremiah James and Jason Huza, who will also provide additional lyrics.
The lab will play four performances directed by the Fulton’s award-winning artistic director Marc Robin and stars Wade McCollum, who previously played both The Wizard of Oz and Doctor Dillamond in Broadway’s Wicked.
McCollum stars as Carl Von Cosel in the brand new romantic musical comedy based on true events in 1930s Key West. After searching for the girl that haunted his boyhood visions, Carl finds Elena in Key West, but is devastated when she passes away. Haunted by her, he takes her body from the graveyard and brings her home where they live undiscovered for seven years.
The cast for the lab also includes Elena Ramos Pascullo, Dave Droxler, Courtney Warford, Roxanne Daneman, Anna DeBlasio, Connor McGiffin, Spencer Micetich, Anson J.H. Woodin, Ryan Neal Green, Michael Fisher, and Casey Furlong.
