New York reading for ‘Time’

New musical gets showcase prior to Portland

Andrew Samonsky, Kelli Barrett and Christopher Innvar will star in a Gotham industry reading of the new musical adaptation of “Somewhere in Time,” gearing up for its already skedded spring bow in Portland, Maine.

Samonsky, currently appearing on Broadway in “Scandalous,” leads the cast as Richard, a contemporary man who travels back in time to start a romance with an actress. Christopher Reeve played the part in the 1980 pic, inspired by 1975 Richard Matheson novel “Bid Time Return.”

Barrett is onboard as the love interest, appearing in a cast that also includes Innvar (“Porgy and Bess”), Lenny Wolpe and Hayden Signoretti. Casting for industry readings does not guarantee a stint in the full production, but it’s not uncommon for cast lists to overlap.

Scott Schwartz (“Golda’s Balcony”) directs “Somewhere in Time,” which has music by Doug Katsaros, lyrics by Amanda Yesnowitz and book by Ken Davenport, also the commercial producer who developed the project. John Carrafa, the legiter (“Urinetown”) who choreographs numbers on ABC skein “Nashville,” choreographs.

Musical begins previews May 28 ahead of a May 31 opening at Portland Center Stage. Title has been developed with an eye toward Gotham, but any future life for the production remains to be determined.
