Lauren Pritchard and Michael Kimmel’s Nashville-set Seagull adaptation plays the New Jersey venue this summer.
Songbird, written by Michael Kimmel (The Last Goodbye) with music and lyrics by Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening), began performances June 9 at Two River Theater.
Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch (The Last Match, Animal), the Nashville-set musical plays the Red Bank, New Jersey, venue through July 1. Songbird drops Chekhov’s The Seagull into a bar in Nashville, where some country music dreams are realized, while others languish.
The cast includes Ephie Aardema as Mia, Felicia Finley as Tammy Trip, Deon'te Goodman as Rip, Kelly Karbacz as Pauline, Drew McVety as Doc, Eric William Morris as Beck, Kacie Sheik as Missy, Marrick Smith as Dean, Bob Stillman as Soren, and Andy Taylor as Samuel.
