Jasper in Deadland tells the story of 16-year-old Jasper, who journeys into the Afterlife to rescue his recently deceased best friend, Agnes.  But in this version of the hereafter – known as “Deadland,”  a hybrid of mythology, religion, and superstition – the dead forget Life…  And so, too, will Jasper, if he can’t get past the seven circles of Deadland, fearsome Cerberus, heavenly Beatrix, mysterious Mr. Lethe, and ultimately himself.  Can Jasper bring his best friend back from the dead, or will he join the dead forever? Book by HUNTER FOSTER and RYAN SCOTT OLIVER, music and Lyrics by RYAN SCOTT OLIVER.



On July 24, 2015, ROS’s ‘We Foxes’ will receive a closed reading at Playwrights Horizons directed by Leigh Silverman.

WE FOXES promo 1-1z no text (1)The reading stars Katie Thompson, Emily Rogers, Ben Crawford, and Ben Frankhauser with Jill Abramovitz, Cory Jeacoma, Natalie Charle Ellis, Tori Huston-Elem, Will Erat, P.J. Griffin, Azudi Onyejekwe, Jen Perry, and Jim Stanek. Creative team includes Music Director Rich Silverstein, Music Assistant Kailey Marshall, with Stage Manager David Lurie and Production Assistant Nessie Nankivell.

We Foxes is a southern Gothic thriller set in small-town Missouri, 1945. It’s the story of WILLA, a tough and unmannered orphan girl, and her adoption by the crafty Sheriff’s wife, VESTA QUIMBY. When Willa discovers the dark secrets beneath the floorboards, a war cuts them apart and Willa must fight to survive. After all, Vesta Quimby is the most beloved and powerful woman in town … Yet she’s less humanitarian socialite than she is Machiavellian sociopath… Can Willa discover her own salvation, deliver herself into courage, and sacrifice everything to escape Vesta? It is a story of intense human struggle, deliverance, and the great salvation found only through oneself.

The reading is produced by Grove Entertainment and hosted by Playwrights Horizons.

The cast of “35mm”

“The time is perfect for this work” says co-producer Adrian Marchuk of this weekend’s Toronto Production of 35mm: A Musical Exhibition in an article for The Star. Directed by Melissa Jane Shaw with musical direction by Chris Tsujiuchi, the production stars Marchuk, Jeigh Madjus, Kelly Holiff, Marisa McIntyre, and Michael Esposito II. Brian Goldenberg co-produces. Get tickets here.

A picture is worth 1,000 words — what about a song? Can a picture inspire a song or fifteen? In 35mm, each photo creates an unique song, moments frozen in time; a glimmer of a life unfolding, a glimpse of something happening. A stunning new multimedia musical which explores a groundbreaking new concept in musical theatre… This intricately woven collection of stories told through song re-imagines what the modern American musical can be.


RSO’S “Darling” is getting a developmental reading via WalkFlyRun productions this summer, and auditions have been announced.


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.
