It was announced today that Twilight: The Musical (not officially associated by Stephenie Meyer, Summit Entertainment, etc) will be read in New York City.

Interestingly, the cast is made up of quite a few theater stars – including actors from Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and yes: A Very Potter Musical.

StarKid’s Lauren Lopez will play Alice. Playbill breaks down the main cast:

The cast will feature Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal) as Bella Swan, Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked) as Rosalie, Hermione (et al.), Lauren Lopez (A Very Potter Musical) as Alice (et al.), Jason Michael Snow (The Book of Mormon) as Harry Potter (et al.), Olli Haaskivi (Jurassic Parq: The Musical) as Jasper (et al.), Eddie Gutierrez (Miss Abigail’s Guide…), Lindsay Dunn (West Side Story), Michael McArthur (Newsies), Kaitlin Mesh (West Side Story) and Cliff Samuels (Follies).

Created by Ashley Griffin, Twilight: The Musical features music and lyrics by Jeremy Ezell, Griffin, Sean Mahoney, David Mallamud and Michael Sutherland.

The musical, according to press notes, “examines our culture of obsession through the story of teenage outsider Bella Swan who risks everything when she embarks on a star-crossed romance with Vampire Edward Cullen.”

You can learn more about the musical on the official site (note that the cast list is not the same as those appearing in NYC). You can also watch the musical on the site via YouTube. Thanks to Sukai for the tip.

    This is a joke, right?

      I hope so….

        lauren lopez tweeted about it… so im guessing its not. its for some cause

        • Virginia

          Hold on, when did she tweet about it????

  • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

    Is this for real? (Cause that would be great! :-D)

  • Kitt

    Loren Lopez!! notice Loren Lopez on there Starkid fans!!!

  • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

    Then again, I just saw some clips of the youtube video, and I’m not too impressed. (Not to be too harsh)
    I suspect a play version has potential though. 

    • http://twitter.com/CassiopeiaDrake Cassie Drake

      Yeah, that’s cuz Andrew got his links mixed up. The youtube videos were people making fun of the books, not affiliated with the books or the NYC musical at all.

      • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

        Haha, thanks for clearing that up! :-D

  • wekjgnv

    why would somebody be playing harry potter?

    • Jinxfoot45

      That’s what I said too! I thought I misread it, but nope, someone is playing Harry… this whole thing is just kind of weird…

      • Trixie99

        They have the video on youtube of this play.  They have Harry, Ron and Hermione in the play, but they’re villains who are jealous because Twilight is becoming popular.  They kidnap the narrator (Stephenie Myer) and I believe Hermione starts to narrate.  

        • Trixie99

          Sorry, I believe this is a different Twilight musical.  The one they’re reading is apparently a different one.  But there is one on youtube that is like the one I described.

  • jennifer_dances

    Who’s playing Edward?!

  • #1Fan

    You’re joking…

  • http://twitter.com/CassiopeiaDrake Cassie Drake

    lol you linked the wrong website. The official website is thetwilightmusical.com. At least, that’s the one listed in the article you linked.

    The one you linked is twilightthemusical.com and is for a youtube parody from several years ago.

    And being a lulzy homemade youtube series, it’s not supposed to be AMAZING xD Especially considering they’re MAKING FUN OF the series lol

    • Tom

      I see. I was so confused when I watched those videos.

    • HermioneCriss

      wait, so is lauren lopez in the youtube video version or not? (i was debating watching it just to see her, but forget it otherwise.)

      • http://twitter.com/CassiopeiaDrake Cassie Drake

        not in the link Andrew posted, but someone earlier in the comments found one that she might be in

      • http://www.youtube.com/?thegarbar13 Katniss Potter Starkid Fan

        Yes the one that was made private by Hillywood productions had Lauren in it. Or at least it looked like her

    • http://www.hypable.com Andrew Sims

      SORRY, thank you for pointing this out!  Fixed it.

      • Katniss Potter Starkid Fan

        The youtube version has been made private :/

  • Anon8

    The most exciting news!!!
    -I love Lauren Lopez. Like a lot. 2 starkids on Broadway?! These talented kids really are taking over!
    -Don’t hate on me, but I am a Twilight fan
    -I am also a parody fan
    -Combined = excite!

    • http://www.facebook.com/Pypersunshine Pyper Atkin

      I know, right?! You took the words right out of my mouth:) when I saw it I was like, LAUREN LOPEZ?? :D

  • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

    Okay, now that I know the right link.. I’m excited but confused. If this article is correct, I’m super excited for Lauren Lopez being in on it, and for the characters of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger somehow being involved, though the site does not say that any of this is true, so I guess future will tell. I just hope it ends up on youtube! :-D

    EDIT: It’s on broadway.com (the internet) so it must be true!
    EDIT2: So this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO9ZK_Vu64s&feature=channel_video_title) has already been on youtube for two years, and I had no clue it excisted. I hardly understand anything they say, but I’ll give it a try, since LAUREN!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/heather.smith07 Heather Smith

    I was disgusted when I read this. really, a Twilight musical? But I watched part of it on youtube and it’s actually so funny. Just making fun of it all, and it’s funny. It wouldn’t make a great NYC Broadway show but it was funny.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1229430522 Kiara Rubin

      those arent the right videos…

      • http://www.facebook.com/heather.smith07 Heather Smith

        oh actually? cause the wrong website looks a lot more legit than the real one..

  • ew_rude

    wait… why harry and hermione??

  • Alexis

    What exactly do they mean, is it just being read outloud or are they acting it out?  I’m confused…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000183764146 Emily Van Horn

    wait, so Harry Potter characters are in the twilight musical?? (that was definitly not what I thought my first reaction would be to this before I read it haha)

  • Luna

    Please tell me this is some sort of parody making a mockery of Twlight. That is the only way I can see Harry, Hermione, and Lauren Lopez being involved. 0_o

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=531808242 Courtney Gibson

    On the website it said that it is a one night only read for charity. So basically it seems that they got a couple of big name theater actors to read the characters of this parody musical for a charity event. Hypable made it seem like it was a big Broadway thing, which was a little deceiving (at least for people who don’t know much about Broadway, like me). 

    • Drch1p

      The event is not deceiving at all! The show is laden with a great writer, a great stage manager, and great producers, along with stars that have performed on Broadway. It is a parody that will most likely have life beyond the performance for charity. It’s as honest as it gets! Wise up!

  • Starkidder11

    NOO! NOT LAUREN LOPEZ! twihards all steal stuff from us potterheads/starkids :/

    • Lucia

      What have they stolen..? And besides, I would hardly call Lauren doing another production that insults Twilight as ‘going to the darkside’ or whatever else

  • Mairead Nguyen

    oh dear lord….

  • HermioneCriss

    NOT LAUREN!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO! THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING! oh well. at least it’s for charity. :)

  • Kavitha

    Lauren Lopez! And, yes this is a PARODY of twilight. Yay!

  • ProudtobeaBumblebee

    Not sure how I feel about Lauren in it…hmm…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

    I hope it pokes fun at it. Either way, great cast!

  • A Very Potter Fan

    1.) From the preview: “If you hate Twilight, you are going to love this musical.”
    2.) LAUREN LOPEZ.
    ‘Nuff said.

  • Jinxfoot45

    This is a joke, right? Like a gag thing that turns out to be fake or rumored? But this IS a joke, right?

  • dancernerd77

    BOOOOOOOOO!!!! HISS!!!! BOOOOOO!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1683360003 Paige Barton

    LMAO

  • http://twitter.com/VeronicaADuff Veronica Duff

    If it’s a parody, wouldn’t this be better-received under the Harry Potter tag? :-P

  • Dreamer

    I hope the musical makes fun of twilight, kinda like how AVPM did

  • StarKiddie

    LAUREN WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!!!!! I TRUSTED YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rachel

    Noooooooo this is stupid…. why? just why?

  • Sia

    I would see it ! Haters go away already !

  • Emmybm15

    Lauren? this is a joke right THE LAUREN LOPEZ is going to be in a saga who shall not be named based musical? Lauren that everybody loves for being Draco in AVPM/S?! O_O I DON’T WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE!

    Now coming from a very HUGE musical theater fan i will not be seeing this musical not only because i don’t like the twilight saga and not sure how they will do this (3 musicals or 1 whole musical based on all three books?) but also because i live in England and if i was going to the states for a Muscial Theater week in Broadway i would have seen Spider-man turn of the dark(because i love spider-man and U2 music) and other musical theater productions which appeals to me which this musical doesn’t really…..
    Just because I don’t like the idea and won’t watch it I am not stopping any other people watching it if they really want to it’s just my opinion….

    • Emmybm15

      OK after finding out it was a parody from the comments after reading them i must say i might have typed all that for nothing……if it makes fun of the saga which shall not be named then yes i would see it but alas again i live in ENGLAND……

  • Smartonehailee

    so is it going to be a spoof of fandoms?

  • TianiP

    Lauren Lopez! Jason Michael Snow! OMFG THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING! I mean, it’s Jason Michael Snow… And Lauren Lopez… this is gonna be funny.

  • Suzys70

    This just sounds dumb.

  • Maddy323

    Why is there Harry and Hermione in this? Am I reading this wrong?

  • carlene

    so I checked the broadway website: http://www.broadway.com/buzz/159174/meghann-fahy-and-jenna-leigh-green-to-star-in-concert-reading-of-twilight-the-musical/
    and everything they said matches the info on the old youtube musical: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO9ZK_Vu64s (same creator, music writers, etc.) It’s just the actors’ names that are different. So I’m assuming it’s the same musical, except now with professional actors and performed on broadway.

  • Katniss Potter Starkid Fan

    Will this be on youtube. The old one is now private. I can’t even search it!!! Help please somebody!
