Shooting Star

Jan McArt’s New Play Reading Series presents Mildred Kayden’s new musical Shooting Star on March 10th, 2014 at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

Shooting Star is a new musical about a young talent who sets out to pursue poetry, but soon finds herself pulled into life among the beautiful people and a commercial show business career via television, nightclubs and Las Vegas.

Composer/lyricist Mildred Kayden, of Boca Raton, and librettist Ed Bullins have been writing musicals together for forty years.  Last year this partnership’s musical Storyville was a hit in Manhattan at the York Theatre Company, and the year before that Kayden’s Ionescopade was revived at the York to rave reviews.

For the Lynn University Staged Reading, Wayne Rudisill will direct a cast that includes Renee Elizabeth Turner, Nicole Lee, Andy Rogow, David Berry, Shenise Nunez and Kassiopia DeVora.

Jan McArt is in charge of theatre development at Lynn University, where this reading is the third in a series of Staged Readings that will be presented this winter/spring; part of Jan McArt’s New Play Reading Series, to develop new plays and musicals by Florida artists.  The next show to be presented in this play reading series is award-winning South Florida playwright Christopher Demos-Brown’s new drama The Child’s Play to be directed by Nicole Stodard, on Monday, April 28th later this year.

Shooting Star will be presented in Lynn’s Wold Performing Arts Center at 7:30 PM on Monday, March 10th, 2014.  Tickets for these Staged Readings are $10 each.  For more information, call 561-237-9000 or go to
