And we have a musical!
Thanks to everyone involved in the Flint Rep New Works Festival for giving us the time and space to hear the entirety of The Magnificent Seven for the first time. Julia and I are so lucky to have gotten to bring along MD extraordinaire Rich Silverstein to work with director Michael Lluberes and a magnificent cast of eleven who vaulted right into a 22-song score with 16 hours of rehearsal. Our gymnasts (pictured above, from L-R) Samantha Carter, Taylor Jones, MaryPaige Reiffel, Amanda Kuo, Annadelle Kimber, Paige VanSickle, and Emily Fishman were joined by Stephanie Cohen, Shelby Coleman, Paul Gregor, and Paul Nelson Gregory to bring the show to life for a friendly crowd who braved the snow.
We can’t wait to get to hear the next draft soon!
