Based on the classic 1992 film comedy, “Honeymoon In Vegas” tells the story of commitment-phobe Jack Singer, his not-so-patient girlfriend Betsy and a professional gambler named Tommy Korman who hasn’t gotten over his wife’s death. It’s also the story of a Hawaiian show-tune queen, a Las Vegas icon, a guy named Foccaccia and a team of flying Elvises. With a jazzy new score by Jason Robert Brown, this is a musical comedy in the Golden Age tradition, with gags, gams and great tunes “And as soon as you hear the opening bars of the overture by Mr. Brown you know you’re listening to the sound of success.” Ben Brantley – New York Times.
The talented cast includes Carter Edward Smith (Jack Singer), Carmen Shedd (Betsy Nolan), Brian Smith (Tommy Korman), Suzanne Connors Nepi (Bea Singer), James D. Thompson (Buddy/Roy), Michael O'Shea (Johnny Sandwich), Emily Gerhard (Mahi) and Joseph Lozano (Teihutu).
The ensemble of New Yorkers, Gamblers, Showgirls and Flying Elvises are Jessica Clayton, Keri Emsweiler, Liz Larsen, Mike Martinkus, Jenny Weiss Mather, Misha McCulloch, Lauren Russell, Joey Taczak and John White.
