Sean Bryan recently signed on as Associate Producer to the new musical Facing East, based on the stirring play by Carol Lynn Pearson.
Facing East tells the story of an upstanding Mormon couple coming to terms with the suicide of their gay son. When they unexpectedly meet their son’s lover, they must face a reality that until then has been ignored, and reconcile their feelings and beliefs.
Facing East: The Musical features a score by David Rigano (The Rigano Songbook), with book and lyrics by Mark Eugene Garcia (The Holy Cows Of Credence, South Dakota) and direction by Andrew Hobgood (Artistic Director of The New Colony in Chicago).
A staged workshop of the musical is planned for late 2011.
