”In addition to being one of the most powerful operas of the last decade, The Screams of Kitty Genovese gave me hope for the renewal of musical theater.” -The New Republic  

On a chilly, March evening in 1964, a young woman was brutally murdered outside her Queens apartment building while nearly 40 witnesses drew their curtains and locked their doors, instead of offering to help. That woman was Kitty Genovese. Her story has fascinated the public for decades, resulting in books, documentaries and even a musical. 

The Screams of Kitty Genovese, with a score by English composer Will Todd and lyrics by David Simpatico, was last seen in New York at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2008. Now, members of the original company will reunite to sing this  score and honor the memory of Kitty Genovese. Frightening, moving and gloriously sung, The Screams of Kitty Genovese will stay with audiences for many years to come.  

The concert is presented as part of the Second Act Series, produced by Steven Carl McCasland and James Horan. McCasland directs, with Musical Direction by James Horan. Each evening revisits a short-lived musical, highlighting its neglected score and inviting audiences to rediscover a forgotten gem. Previous evenings include: Onward Victoria, Charlie and Algernon, Eating Raoul, 70, Girls, 70, Mademoiselle Colombe and Nick and Nora.

Starring:
Sheri Sanders (Rock The Audition, Urinetown) as Kitty Genovese
