BroadwayWorld is happy to announce the launch of a brand new internet sequence, Ms. Steerage. Directed by Van Hansis and Melodie Sisk and written by James Ryan Caldwell, the six-episode sequence will premiere solely right here at BroadwayWorld on Wednesday, June twenty ninth.
Ms. Steerage is a darkish comedy about Jenny Bump, a gifted and narcissistic actress coping with a failed performing profession. After a humiliating meltdown on a New York stage, Jenny calls it quits on her performing profession and retreats to the performing arts boarding faculty she attended in her youth to be a steering counselor. Nonetheless, listening to the goals of her college students rapidly stokes the dying embers of her personal, and he or she is quickly plotting a brand new path to stardom, wreaking havoc on her family and friends. Ms. Steerage can be a love letter to the theater, the theatre neighborhood, and most importantly, to these theatre artists who will do something to make their goals a actuality.
The sequence stars Amber Grey (Hadestown, MacBeth), Van Hansis (Eastsiders), Tyler Hanes (Cats, Fosse/Verdon), Ian Unterman (Dopesick), Calli Alden (Carry It On), and Tony Award Winner Adriane Lenox (Doubt).
