A green new musical.
Lying, stealing, forging, kidnapping, government-manipulating oil baron Dean captures and warehouses renewable energy discoveries. Shy uber-geek Raymond fights back with a black hole trash compactor. Will Dean feed Raymond’s fiancé to the black hole, in his campaign to promote capitalism by crushing competition? Will true love prevail in the face of ultimate greed, a chicken-bone fuel generator, and booth babes doing a strip tease where the black hole sucks their clothes off? Find out in this zany satire of energy politics, Black Hole Wedding: a love story with a pure heart, wrapped in a warped universe where truth doesn’t matter, integrity doesn’t matter, but golf is essential.

Industry readings of Jonathan Van Dyke’s Spring at The Willowbrook Inn will be presented Nov. 19-20 in Manhattan.
The readings will feature the talents of four-time Olympic champion Greg Louganis (Jeffrey), Sean McDermott (Miss Saigon, Silence! The Musical), Jason Patrick Sands (Chicago) and Justin Lore (Forbidden Broadway, Disney’s “Finding Nemo”).
Directed by Scott Wojcik and conceived by Doug Evans, Willowbrook Inn was the winner of the Outstanding Production Award as well as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play (Jason Patrick Sands) at the Fresh Fruit Festival 2012.
The play, according to press notes, “follows the lives of Cooper Stanwyk and Joshua Hill from their first meeting in 1967 at a motivational conference. This unlikely pair develop a deep relationship based on mutual understanding and love as their lives unfold separately. Through correspondence and decades of meeting at the Willowbrook they become a pivotal role in each other’s lives, supporting each other through the unpredictable events each one faces.”
Murder. Greed. Corruption. Violence. Exploitation. Adultery. Treachery. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
Sean will be playing high powered defense lawyer BILLY FLYNN in North Shore Music Theater’s Production of CHICAGO September 23 thru October 5 2014

New York Music Theatre Festival reading
July 15 and 17, 2012
AFFAIR OF HONOUR is an epic historical musical that centers around the relationship between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton, who are both caught up in the maelstrom of the American revolution. Their story, which culminates in the infamous duel, is a rich saga of friendship, contempt, and envy. Their personal stories, and their personal grief, is absolutely mindboggling. Paul Anthony Stewart (CYRANO – THE MUSICAL, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF) and Sean McDermott (MISS SAIGON, FALSETTOS) star as Burr and Hamilton, alongside Linda Balgord (THE PIRATE QUEEN, CATS), Catherine Blades (BYE BYE BIRDIE), Summer Broyhill (HAIRSPRAY), Josh Adam Davis (ODYSSEY), James Judy (INTO THE WOODS, SCARLET PIMPERNEL), Rob Lorey (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, ASPECTS OF LOVE), Zal Owen (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF tour), Robert Sella (CABARET, SIDE MAN), and Elena Shaddow (LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, NINE). Leah Bonvissuto is the Associate DIrector. Milton Granger (MARY POPPINS, THE WOMAN IN WHITE, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, LOVEMUSIK) rules the pit.
