The Green Room 42 will continue its New Writers Series November 25 at 9:30 PM with a concert version of Story of Three, a new musical by Heath Saunders, composer of Newton’s Cradle and star of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.
The cast will feature Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening, Dear Evan Hansen), Jordon Bolden, Nikko Benson, Ally Bonino, F. Michael Haynie (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory), Zachary Infante (Big River, Tamburlaine Part I & II), Aury Krebs, Jared Loftin (Gigantic), Alanna Saunders (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Claire Saunders (Marry Harry), Simon Schaitkin, and Kuhoo Verma.
Story of Three concerns 12 high school seniors dealing with questions about love and identity, and how those two ideas intersect. It follows a young actor, Loman, who has lived most of his high school experience keeping his close friendships isolated from one another: His best friends, Chloe and Gabe (who go to different schools), have never actually met. While Loman is dealing with new questions about sexuality and his feelings for Gabe, the meeting of the two worlds begins to collapse his carefully curated social structure.
Saunders wrote the first draft of this musical when he was 17, and many of his friends are taking part in the concert in honor of his upcoming 30th birthday.
The show is directed by Natalie Walker and produced by Kim Saunders.
The Green Room 42 is located at 570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street. The cover charge is $15–$40. There is no food and drink minimum. For tickets, visit TheGreenRoom42.com.
