To New Line Theatre’s Scott Miller, who invited anybody who was interested to come to a public reading of “The Zombies of Penzance.” What a fun night! The free reading drew a big, strikingly youthful crowd to the Marcel Theater. (They had to bring in extra chairs.)

And members of the audience, in both their laughter and their comments, gave useful feedback on the new Gilbert and Sullivan parody to writer Miller and composer/orchestrator John Gerdes. “The Zombies of Penzance” opens the next New Line season with a full production in September.
