Tayeh to say ‘Goodbye’

'Dance' judge to choreograph rock musical

Sonya Tayeh, the choreographer and occasional judge on hit Fox skein “So You Think You Can Dance,” has been tapped to choreograph “The Last Goodbye,” the Jeff Buckley tuner bowing at the Williamstown Theater Festival in August.

A rock retelling of “Romeo and Juliet” with Buckley tunes, “Last Goodbye” already has attracted the interest of commercial producers, with Hal Luftig (“Legally Blonde”), Ruth and Stephen Hendel (“Fela!”) and Alan D. Marks and Stephen Moore (“Finian’s Rainbow”) kicking in enhancement money.

Conceived and helmed by Michael Kimmel, “Last Goodbye” has a cast that includes Kelli Barrett (“The Royal Family”) and Damon Daunno as the young lovers, as well as Chloe Webb, Merle Dandrige, Nick Blaemire and Michael Park.

Design team includes Michael Brown (sets), Anne Kennedy (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights) and Ken Travis (sound). Music director Kris Kukul provides orchestrations and arrangements.

Williamstown run of “Last Goodbye” is set to play Aug. 5-20.
