Picnic at Hanging Rock at Goodspeed's Festival of New Musicals

There will be a staged reading of my musical Picnic at Hanging Rock tomorrow night (Friday, January 13th) at the historic Goodspeed Opera House, directed by Tyne Rafaeli.  Based on the haunting novel by Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock has been a bit of an obsessive passion project for me.  My adaptation has been developed at Lincoln Center Theater and the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. The reading tomorrow will include new material.  I'm happy to have the chance to continue to refine this piece which means so much to me.  There has been a resurgence of interest in the novel lately, as 2017 is its 50th anniversary.  Tickets and information HERE.
