The world premiere of A LASTING IMPRESSION, a new musical by Zoe Sarnak, is set to be presented at New York Theatre Workshop's 4th Street Theatre in a weeklong showcase beginning tonight, August 21st, 2012.
Marlo Hunter will direct the production with musical direction by Eli Zoller. Full cast and creative team will be announced in the coming weeks.
A LASTING IMPRESSION is a new musical that combines music, theatre and visual art. The story, three versions of the same narrative, is told by its three leads, Josh and sisters Kali and Simone Blanche, each through his or her own artistic medium. Josh, a once guarded journalist, acts as its narrator, using old taped interviews and pictures to guide us through his memory of the two sisters. Kali, a manic musician, is the piece's composer, moving in and out of "her band" as the story unfolds. Simone, a young painter, controls the evolution of what begins as a blank set, and comes to life through the addition of her visual art. A Lasting Impression is about impressions that we make through love on those close to us, and through art on those we may never meet.
