The Magnificent Seven @ Theatre Row

The Magnificent Seven finally comes to the stage! After years of readings and dreaming about how we might ever put our gymnastics-less gymnastics musical onstage, it’s coming to life from July 7-17, 2022 at Theatre One at Theatre Row in New York City. Twelve performances only!

Our cast, full of old and new favorites, features Holly Gould, Sam Heldt, MinJi Kim, Kylie Lavrenchik, Amy Linden, Ellen Condon Macy, Evan Maltby, Allison Posner, Lynne Marie Rosenberg, Libby Servais, Josslyn Shaw & Racquel Williams.

Our creative team includes Director Nikki DiLoreto, Music Director Alex Ratner, Choreographer Jessica Walker, Associate Choreographer Christine Sienicki, Production Stage Manager Kelly Soares, Scenic Designer Meredith Ries, Assistant Scenic Designer Ally Turlo, Costume Designer Jennifer Chi, Lighting Designer Shannon Clarke, Sound Designer Elisabeth Weidner, Technical Director Cesar Renero & Line Producer Hannah Sgambellone.

We are thrilled to present the show, produced in association with Steve Kyriakis, on our own terms to see our vision through for the first time.

Tickets, priced $45-$60, are available from the Theatre Row Box Office online, by telephone (212.714.2442), or in person at 410 West 42nd Street.

A Pact deferred

I’m sad to say that performances for the NYU production of Pregnancy Pact have been cancelled now that NYU has suspended all events in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. While I’m disappointed that we won’t get to share the hard work of the amazing ten actors pictured here with you all (not to mention the creative team behind the scenes) I’m so grateful to have had the chance to see the show run in the rehearsal room in front of a small audience of family and teachers and friends.

Thanks to Sarah Schlesinger and Kent Gash for giving us the opportunity; and thanks to our wonderful collaborators: director Catie Davis, music director Mark Evans, choreographer Nancy Renée Braun , stage manager Alannah O’Hagan, assistant director Sarah DeMarino, assistant stage manager Hannah Ford, and actors (pictured at left, clockwise) Cuinlin Pedretti (Cory/Justin), Caroline Reinstadtler (Jenn), Mary Jardine (Maddie), Scottie Schwefel (Brynn), Tiana Monique Jung (Sansanee), Jennifer Daly (Kaylee), Kylie Lavrenchik (Jeanelle), Ruby Zinner (Jeanelle), Chanel Morehead (Jenn), and Maddie Dyer (Maddie.)

This has been a wonderful second act for the show – we’ve gotten to tackle some meaningful rewrites and think through what this show means in 2020 – and Julia and I truly hope we’ll have a chance to share it again before too long.

A Magnificent summer!

In the lead up to the Olympics, The Magnificent Seven will vault onstage in New York this summer! Produced at the historic Players Theater in Greenwich Village, the show will be directed by Nikki DiLoreto (Soft Power, Kiss Me, Kate) with music direction by Alex Ratner and choreography by Sunny Hitt. The production runs June 25 to July 19. Casting will be announced shortly!

Pregnancy Pact, NYU edition

The production will be directed by Catie Davis (Associate Director on Beetlejuice and Moulin Rouge on Broadway) with music direction by Mark Evans and choreography by Nancy Renée Braun. The cast of ten (with double the Maddies, Jeanelles, and Jenns) includes Jennifer Daly, Maddie Dyer, Mary Jardine, Tiana Monique Jung, Kylie Lavrenchik, Chanel Morehead, Caroline Reinstadtler, Cuinlan Pedretti, Scottie Schwefel, and Ruby Zinner.

I can’t wait to be back in the room with the show and see it on its feet once again!
