Third Space is proud to present a reading of KRAGTAR: A Monster Musical Comedy on Saturday, August 1 in midtown Manhattan. The cast will feature Lucas Steele (Natasha, Pierre...1812, The Threepenny Opera), Trevor McQueen(Annie Get Your Gun), Annie Yokom (Prison Break) and Alex Spieth (blankmylife). Book, music & lyrics by Kyle Wilson, Joe Mendick and Sam French. The reading will be directed by Benjamin Viertel.
KRAGTAR is a new musical comedy centering on a love story set against the backdrop of a Godzilla-esque monster invasion. Harry Fine and Harvey Finkler are two gay scientists reunited by fate to prove the existence of the monster Kragtar to the United States Congress, which refuses to acknowledge the beast, even as its trail of tears leaves national monuments, organic grocery stores, and the bodies of seemingly-innocent Catholic school girls crumbling in its wake.
Additional casting includes Philippe Arroyo, J.D. Killikelly, Zanny Laird, Michael McGuire, Johari Nandi and Jacob Vine. Music Direction by Jacob Houser.
