Serrano The Musical Is Outstanding & Strikes All The Right Chords!

Serrano The Musical is an outstanding new musical comedy which opened last nite at the Matrix Theatre on Melrose.  Under the skillful direction of Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) Serrano The Musical is a fun & enormously entertaining modern take on the French classic Cyrano de Bergerac but now the plot takes place in New York's Little Italy & Serrano the poet & lover is also Serrano the hit man.  Serrano The Musical's cast is stellar & stars Tim Martin Gleason, Chad Doreck, Suzanne Petrela, Chad Borden, Matthew Henerson, Peter Van Norden, Craig McEldowney, Tom G. McMahon, Kristina Miller, Barry Pearl, Valerie Perri, James Tabeek, Jonathon Sharp & Michelle Loucadoux.  The production values are excellent &  features book & lyrics by Madeline Sunshine, score by Robert Tepper, musical direction by Jeff Rizzo,  choreography by Peggy Hickey & scenic design by Stephen Gifford.  Director Joel Zwick spent 5 years with him team developing the project & says "Since my early days at LaMama, I have always been a minimalist, striving to make all the shows I have been involved with Actor-centric.  This necessitates great actors, singers, & dancers, & Serrano is the best cast I have assembled for a production".  I whole heartedly agree - the cast is amazing - great singers, dancers & actors plus snappy songs & hilarious dialogue.  Serrano The Musical plays til March 29th & hopefully on to Broadway after that... it is that good!  Visit for more information.  Enjoy!  HH
