Pop those corks, ladies and gentlemen! We met with Jim Morgan, Artistic Director at the York Theatre today. Gayland has been upgraded from “table read” to “29-hour read.” “29-hour read” means a table read with more extensive preparation. Also, it will be on the main stage at the York Theatre.
Just finished the first rehearsal last night. So great to see Broadway pros treading the boards singing Gayland tunes!

We are very fortunate to be working with the York Theatre. Their specialty is developing and producing new musicals. In fact, they got a special Drama Desk Award for their contributions in this area.
So we are very happy to be announcing our first rehearsal for the upcoming Gayland table read at the York. Friday, October 16th, is the big day.
Huzzah for boots on the ground!
