Grammy-award winner Emilio Solla (music) and award-winning NYC advertising lyricist Jarlath Barsanti Jacobs (book/lyrics) bring their original new work Fire Island The Musical to Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd St. Theater Four, for four performances: April 27 (8pm), April 30 (8pm), May 6 (8pm) and May 14 (3pm). It is part of the CreateTheater New Works Festival running until May 14.

In FIRE ISLAND THE MUSICAL, Gabe and Anne almost said “I do” one summer years ago. Now their gay housemates have invited them to a wedding/reunion on the historic day same sex marriage becomes legal – June 24, 2011. Amidst a celebration of triumph, can they get a second chance?

“FIRE ISLAND brings all the romance, summer love and beach fun to the stage that you would expect to see in a musical set here,” says producer Cate Cammarata, who has been watching this show develop over the last several years. “The real Fire Island is such a special place for many people, both personally and historically. It played a real role in its crusade against the AIDS epidemic in the 80’s, which many people don’t know. I’m so happy that detail found it’s way into the musical. And of course, the Horace Gifford architecture is extraordinary – which set designer Richard Ouellette captured so well. The July 4th Invasion scene that ends Act One is not to be missed!”
