Having won Most Promising Musical, Best Book, Best Direction and an acting award in the 2010 NYMF awards and earning a nomination for Best Comedic Play in the Canadian Comedy Awards, MMLJWW now comes to Los Angeles.
Presented under the umbrella of the Festival for New American Musicals, as part of their First Look program, MMLJWW will be presented in a workshop concert format, and is intended as a benefit for the American Foundation for Equal Rights, and the Festival for New American Musicals. Authors, and original stars David Hein and Irene Sankoff will be on hand to reprise their roles. Additional casting will be announced shortly.
MMLJWW follows Claire Gilman, newly divorced, as she relocates to Ottawa to begin a new life. There she meets Jane, and the pair fall in love. Set against the backdrop of the legalization of same sex marriage in Canada, the show traces the development of their relationship through the eyes of Claire’s son David.
Kate Sullivan Gibbens directs the show, fresh off a successful re-invention of Spring Awakening at the Hayworth Theatre (as well as a collaboration with Dustin Lance Black on 8), with musical direction by Patrick Burns. MMLJWW is produced by Nathan Gardner, Kate Sullivan Gibbens, Topher Rhys, and the Festival of New American Musicals, in association with John Yonover.
The show plays two performances, August 19 and 20th at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood. Tickets, priced at $25.00 are available by calling (323) 960-5770 or online at http://www.plays411.com/ljwwedding. For more information, please visit www.mmljwwla.com.
