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.”
