Gayland 5.0 Act 1 Table Reading Went Very Well

We had about 25 friends and Broadway professionals in attendance. The first act ran long at 1:25 minutes, so we’ll need to cut that by about 15 minutes. We also solicited written feedback from audience members, which is proving to be fascinating.

Some of the roles were played by old fav actors we’ve worked with before, and in some roles we tried out new actors. It’s wonderful to be working in NY where there are so many talented performers.

Our new Music Director, Mark Hartman, proved himself to be extremely musically adept, technically eagle-eyed, a tireless coach, and also very funny. We’re delighted to have connected with him.

Thanks to our wonderful cast:

Danielle Erin Rhodes – Willow
Shaleah Adkisson – Boo, Sally
Stephen Elkins – Zack
Ivan Griffin – Brock, Dad
Blake Zolfo – Finn, Pops
Sam Given – Gaige
Troy Rucker – Belsen Barnard, Pizza Guy, Caleb, Ensemble
Natalie Pavalek – Bambi Krushjoy, Zoe, Publicist, Ensemble

Next steps for us are a rewrite, and then a read of probably the entire play in a couple of months.
