Vets cue tuner tryouts

Kritzer, Walsh ready for New York Musical Theater Fest

Leslie Kritzer, Barbara Walsh and Felicia Finley are among the Broadway vets signed on to showcase the developing tuners at the 2009 New York Musical Theater Fest.

Kritzer (“A Catered Affair”), Walsh (“Company”) and Ann Harada (“Avenue Q”) will star in “Judas and Me,” the new tuner from Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar, the duo behind “The Wedding Singer.” Helmed by Jeremy Dobrish, “Judas” centers on the titular Bible character as a boy, whose mother pushes him to compete with the boy next door, Jesus.

Finley (“Wedding Singer”) and Natalie Venetia Belcon (“Avenue Q”) topline “The Last Smoker in America,” the latest from Peter Melnick (“Adrift in Macao”) and Bill Russell (“Side Show”). Manu Narayan (“Bombay Dreams”) stars in vampire tuner “The Cure” while Paolo Montalban (“Pacific Overtures”) and Colin Hanlon (“Rent”) are on board for superhero musical “Whatever Man.”

Jack Noseworthy (“Sweet Smell of Success”) and John Herrera (“The Mystery of Edwin Drood”) star in Barry Harman and Grant Sturiale’s “Under Fire,” a journos-in-South America story based on the 1983 pic that starred Nick Nolte, Ed Harris and Gene Hackman.

Annual fall fest NYMF has helped launch projects including “Next to Normal,” “Altar Boyz” and “[title of show].” The 2009 edition runs Sept. 28-Oct. 18.
