Jillian Louis plays Gloria, your caring, neighborhood Duane Reade Pharmacist. Check out Jillian singing “Everything You Long For (is in New Jersey)” from Flambé Dreams.
We had an informal table read of Flambé Dreams at composer Randy Klein’s Apartment on the Upper West Side in Manhattan. In attendance were two of our returning actors Jillian Louis and Kevin B McGlynn as well as Director West Hyler and Dramaturg Neal Freeman. And of course Randy and I (Matthew Hardy) were there! We took turns filling in for the missing characters and read and sang thru the entire show. It’s feeling pretty good, but our director and dramaturg had a few notes and Randy and I are doing some rewrites to make the show even better!
On April 19th we had our first site visit to the 45th Street Theatre on 354 W 45th street in the heart of the theatre district. It’s a small space but our director West Hyler has some great ideas of how to use it for optimal effect!
