Producers of Heathers: The Musical and Rock of Ages have announced that the new pop-rock musical ONE DAY will have its New York premiere this spring, for a limited engagement at the innovative downtown performance space 3LD Art & Technology Center. Previews are set to begin on Saturday, February 7, 2015, with an opening night of Thursday, February 19, 2015. The show is scheduled to run through March 1, 2015.
Based on true journal entries written by teens spanning two decades, ONE DAY follows the electrifying journey of eight teenagers as they face ravaging internal struggles and exhilarating triumphs – from drug abuse to sexual awakening – on the passage to discovering their own truths. Their scribbled anecdotes, poems and short stories are brought to life on stage through a score, book and co-direction by Michael Sottile, choreography and co-direction by Ray Leeper (“So You Think You Can Dance,” “Dancing With The Stars”), and cutting-edge, interactive projection design by Google Grant recipient Andrew Lazarow (I Am Harvey Milk, Brooklynite).
The ONE DAY cast includes Brenna Bloom, Chase O’Donnell, Marco Ramos, Honey Ribar, Aaron Scheff, Austin Scott, Benjamin Shuman, Andy Spencer, Aliya Stuart, Nyseli Vega and Charlotte Mary Wen.
Completing the creative team are Lighting Designer Jason Lyons (On The Town, Rock of Ages), Sound Designer
Drew Levy (Honeymoon in Vegas), Scenic Designer Ellen Rousseau (The Weight of Water) and Costume Designer Shane Ballard (Madame Infamy), with vocal arrangements by AnnMarie Milazzo (If/Then, Next to Normal) and music direction by Keith Harrison (“The Voice”, “American Idol”).
ONE DAY is produced by Carl Levin, Jamie Bendell, Scott & Marnie Prisand, Bruce Bendell, Sheryl Regan, Tom Ross, Whistling Mario Productions, Scott Benson and Big Block Entertainment.
