After a whirlwind year of tremendous response and development, Marlo had the great pleasure of directing & choreographing the Developmental Lab production of Adam Overett's MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL at The Duke Theater, produced by Martin Platt, David Elliot, Cheryl Weisenfeld, Patrick Blake, Joan Raffe & Jhett Tolentino. Her incredible cast included Howie Michael Smith, Sarah Stiles, Jim Walton, Preston Sadleir, Chris Critelli, Alison Cimmet, Natalie Charle Ellis & Kevin Zak, with Musical Direction by Matt Castle.
Marlo is thrilled to announce that she'll be directing and choreographing Carner & Gregor's Richard Rodgers Award winning musical, UNLOCK'D, Off-Broadway at The Duke on 42nd Street for Prospect Theater Company! Clarissa is tired of living in the shadow of her flirtatious sister Belinda, the most adored woman in 18th Century England. Wits sharpened and scissors in hand, Clarrisa sets out to cut Belinda - and her glorious locks of hair - down to size... and to find a man of her own! Through an innovative score featuring electric guitar alongside harpsichord and strings, four star-crossed lovers and mischievous spirits that surround them are each unwittingly "unlocked" to their true feelings and identities.
Following the overwhelming response from our February reading, Marlo and Adam Overett remounted MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL for encore reading presentations, produced by Martin Platt.
