On Wednesday, Oct. 28, don’t miss a special “virtual benefit reading” of A Very Brady Musical, a book from Lloyd J. Schwartz and Hope Juber, carried out by a host of performers, Broadway stars and more. Music and lyrics for this virtual event are provided by Hope Juber and acclaimed, award-winning guitar virtuoso Laurence Juber.

As its name might suggest, A Very Brady Musical exists in the world of The Brady Bunch, the beloved classic television series.

Here’s a bit more:

In a cheeky modern spin on the wholesome throw-back, this new musical follows the Brady kids’ misadventures when they come to the mistaken conclusion their parents are heading for certain doom: divorce. After consulting with trusty Alice, the kids decide to raise money to pay for marriage counseling. Before everything can turn out okay in the end and the kids can learn a valuable lesson, they’ll find each well-intentioned idea lands them in outrageous trouble… all in a sensible 90 minutes.

Ted Arthur is the project’s Music Director, while Off the Leash Productions’ Jeremy Handelman is the Technical Director and Video Designer.

A bit more about the cast of talent involved in this production:

A Very Brady Musical will feature Broadway stars Gavin Lee (Mary Poppins, SpongeBob SquarePants) as Mike, Kerry Butler (Beetlejuice, Mean Girls) as Carol, Klea Blackhurst (“The Onion News Network,” Everything the Traffic Will Allow) as Alice, Celia Hottenstein (Wicked) as Marcia, Troy Iwata (Broadway’s Be More Chill, “Dash & Lily”) as Peter, Diana Huey (Ogunquit Playhouse’s Elf, The Little Mermaid National Tour) as Jan, Mason Reeves (Frozen, National Tour) as Greg, Anthony Zambito (“Girls,” Paramount Theatre’s James and the Giant Peach) as Bobby, and Trista Dollison (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, A Bronx Tale, The Lion King ) as Cindy.
