EVERYDAY RAPTURE

A New Broadway Musical

Sherie Rene Scott is putting on the kind of sensational show this city hasn’t seen since Bette Midler last played Radio City Musical Hall.

 Everyday Rapture qualifies as one of the year’s most extravagantly entertaining new musicals.” – NY Times, Ben Brantley

On Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Previews begin on Monday, April 19th for Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Everyday Rapture, the critically acclaimed new musical starring Sherie Rene Scott, by Dick Scanlan & Sherie Rene Scott and directed by Michael Mayer.

Everyday Rapture will open officially on April 29th, 2010 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). This is a limited engagement through July 11th, 2010.

Everyday Rapture is the story of a young woman’s psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). Everyday Rapture also features songs made famous by David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Supremes, Elton John, Tom Waits, U2 and Judy Garland.

The cast features Eamon Foley, Lindsay Mendez and Betsy Wolfe.

The artistic team includes: Choreography by Michele Lynch, orchestrations & arrangements by Tom Kitt, music supervision by Michael Rafter and music direction by Marco Paguia. The design team includes Christine Jones (Sets), Tom Broecker (Costumes), Kevin Adams (Lights), Brian Ronan (Sound) and Darrel Maloney (Projections).

Everyday Rapture premiered at Second Stage on May 3rd, 2009.  Due to unanimous critical acclaim, the production was extended twice beyond its limited engagement.  Everyday Rapture has been nominated for two Lucille Lortel Awards: Outstanding Musical & Outstanding Lead Actress (Sherie Rene Scott).

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls Everyday Rapture, “Sensational!  
One of the year’s most extravagantly entertaining new musicals.”  Joe Dziemianowicz of the New York Daily News raves, “Go see it!  For the 90 minutes that Sherie Rene Scott is on stage, audiences have an unobstructed view of paradise personified – a wickedly funny, wonderfully touching show,” while Michael Kuchwara of the Associated Press calls the show, “rapturous entertainment – a touching, tuneful and often hilarious tale”
 
The Everyday Rapture cast album will be released on iTunes on April 27 and in stores June 2010 on
