Nolan Gerard Funk, Sam Underwood and Al Calderon are also starring in the movie, which has begun shooting in New York City.
The movie is based on Michael John LaChiusa’s chamber musical of the same name, originally produced by Lincoln Center Theatre in 1994 and nominated for eight Drama Desks. “Hello Again” is inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s 1897 play “La Ronde: Hello Again” and follows 10 lost souls who skip across 10 periods in New York City history, slipping in and out of one another’s arms and beds.
The movie is directed by Tom Gustafson (“Mariachi Gringo”) from a screenplay by Cory Krueckeberg with music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa.
Producers are Gustafson, Krueckeberg, Ash Christian and Hunter Arnold. Devon Schneider is co-producing, with Gregory Rae and Carl D. White from Martian Entertainment co-executive producing.
McDonald has won six Tonys and was last seen on the big screen in “Ricki and the Flash.”
