EXCERPTS FROM THE ARTICLE
The following are excerpts from the October 26, 2016 Playbill article about Los Otros By Adam Hetrick
Los Otros, the new musical by Tony Award nominee Michael John LaChiusa (music) and Ellen Fitzhugh (book and lyrics), will receive a November 4 workshop presentation in New York City with Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello and Joseph Melendez among the cast.
The private industry workshop will be directed by Noah Himmelstein, with musical direction by Jon Kalbfleisch. Los Otros was originally commissioned by the Center Theatre Group, where it had its premiere in 2012.
Carmello (Parade, Tuck Everlasting) will play Lillian. Melendez, who appeared in the original CTG production, will play Carlos.
The workshop reflects a revised version of the musical that will receive a full staging at Baltimore’s Everyman Theatre March 22-April 23, 2017. Everyman commissioned the latest version of the musical. Himmelstein is the theatre’s associate artistic director.
