Infamous the Musical is set to premiere as a stage concert in September at St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio. Infamous is a musical account of the events leading up to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the subsequent manhunt for his killer, John Wilkes Booth.
Infamous The Musical is written by local Cleveland playwright and composer David Owen Michaels, who also happens to be the director of St. Edward’s High School Orchestra and Choir. Michaels says “This show is a look at our divided past, told through the prism of our divided present.” Bob Frantz of Cleveland Radio calls Infamous “Gripping”, and Ray Carr of Cleveland’s WCSB 89.3 says the show “sets the benchmark for excellence in musical theatre”.
Infamous the Musical is directed by Scott Spence and the music is conducted by Maria DiDonato. The show features all of Cleveland’s local talent, including Robert Kowalewski (John Wilkes Booth), Greg Violand (Abraham Lincoln), Sandra Montevideo (Mary Lincoln), and Natalie Green (Lucy Hale). Bill Shaffer conducts the twelve-piece pit orchestra, as they play through Michaels’ great score. Two-time Tony Award-winning producer Ken Davenport is the production coach for Infamous the Musical.
Infamous the Musical will be presented September 9-11 at St. Edward High School (13500 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, Ohio). Curtain times on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10 are 7 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 11.
