The New Moon at Lyric Stage

I’m so excited to announce that I have been cast in The New Moon at Lyric Stage! This is a big step for me professionally for many reasons, and I could not be more thrilled.  We’ve been in rehearsal for a week and half already and I’ve never worked with such a talented cast before; it’s truly a pleasure and a joy to go to rehearsal every day. And the best part (aside from the incredible singers I get to sing with) is that the show is accompanied by a full, live orchestra! This is so rare and such a treat; you won’t want to miss the show!

Here’s a little preview of our leading lady and leading man singing the gorgeous duet “Wanting You” with our fantastic orchestra:


Wasn’t that glorious? And believe me, the rest of the show is just as wonderful. Lots of laughs, romantic tension, and the noble fight for a fairer world. What could be better?

A Romantic Musical Comedy
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Frank Mandel and Laurence Schwab
Music by Sigmund Romberg


THE NEW MOON was composer Sigmund Romberg’s third hit in a row and the last of the great Broadway comic operettas. The original Broadway production ran for 519 performances at the Imperial Theatre (September 19, 1928-December 14, 1929).  The Desert Song (1924), Student Prince (1925), The New Moon; no other composer produced three in a row like this, of such quality and with such success. Perhaps The New Moon is his most impressive. Lyric Stage’s production will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for North Texas audiences to hear this glorious score sung by an ensemble of incredible singers accompanied by the 35 piece Lyric Stage Orchestra. “Lover, Come Back to Me,” “One Kiss,” and the rousing “Stout-Hearted Men” are three of the hit songs from Romberg’s greatest score.
