Directed by Artistic Director Richard Barletta this production marks the first musical the Griffin Theatre Company will present in its seventeen-year history. With a book by Artistic Director William Massolia and original music and lyrics by George Howe, Sleeping Ugly – The Musical is an eccentric take on the hackneyed fairy tale formula. The cast of Sleeping Ugly – The Musical includes Steven Best, Jill Hames, Michael Klug, Colleen McSherry, Leah Morrow, and Matthew Lon Walker. Costumes for Sleeping Ugly – The Musical will be designed by ensemble member William Morey, and ensemble member Christopher Tisone will design sound. Set Designer Jay Branson returns to the Griffin stage having designed the Griffin Theatre Company’s productions of Stardust and Ella Enchanted. Choreographer Heather Hanamen created the dance numbers for the Griffin’s productions of Shake Your Groove Thing and Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. Composer and lyricist George Howe recently wrote the original musical score for the critically acclaimed production of Queen Lucia and the upcoming KidSeries production of Brave Potatoes at Lifeline Theatre. For the Griffin he wrote the song See Ya’ Later for the hit production of Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. William Massolia’s adaptations of There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom, Frindle, and There’s a Girl In My Hammerlock have been seen by thousands of young people in touring productions throughout the United States. This is Artistic Director Richard Barletta’s first main stage directorial effort since the wildly popular Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging which went on to win three Joseph Jefferson Citations. Artistic Directors Richard Barletta and William Massolia are still in discussions with Alderman Patrick J. O’Connor to secure a permanent home in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago with the now closed police station on the corner of Foster and Damen Avenues a prime contender.
