“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

Opens on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Everyday Rapture officially opens tomorrow, Thursday, April 29th.

Everyday Rapture is playing 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).

The Everyday Rapture cast album will be released in May 2010 on Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records.
