The Reading

With book, music & lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver, conceived byBrett Ryback, and directed by Robert Longbottom, with choreography by Greg Graham and musical direction by Rodney Bush, DARLING is set in 1900s Boston and follows 16-year-old Darling as she encounters a boy named Peter, who offers the opportunity to run away with him. She takes it and finds herself swept into a seedy underground of jazz, sex, lost rentboys, and a mysterious white powder called Dust.

DARLING just appeared in a January reading at Pearl Studios and was featured on the “Bound for Broadway” episode of NBC’s The Apprentice in 2010, and in 2012, was given a private workshop and developmental production as a collaboration between Retrop Production and RareWorks Theatre Company, in association with Sh-K-Boom Records, at Emerson College. In 2013, Darling received The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company New Musical Award.
