Rhinebeck Writers Retreat is presenting a reading of the new musical STARSTRUCK, written by Tony-nominee Beth Malone (FUN HOME), Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls, and Mary Ann Stratton. STARSTRUCK was selected for Rhinebeck Writers Retreat’s Triple R program, where the writers receive two readings and a residency to do extensive development of their musical. They started with a cold table read in NYC, followed by a residency in Rhinebeck to revise the script and score. The final step is a reading in NYC for an invited industry audience.  The cast includes Beth in the lead role, Jeb Brown (BEAUTIFUL THE CAROL KING MUSICAL), Claybourne Elder (COMPANY), Ann Harada (INTO THE WOODS), Marc Kudisch (GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY), and Krysta Rodriguez (INTO THE WOODS). The reading is directed by Sherri Eden Barber (resident director of HAMILTON tour) and music directed by Cynthia Meng. The General Manager is Dailey-Monda Management.  www.rhinebeckwriters.org
