The World Premiere Of New Musical Dave
A year after taking his final bow as Dr. Pomatter in the Broadway smash hit Waitress, Drew Gehling is back and originating the title role in the exciting world premiere of Dave the musical. Adapted by a creative dream team including Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tom Kitt (If/Then), Thomas Meehan (Hairspray) and Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), the production is based on the Oscar nominated 1993 political comedy film starring Kevin Kline and his adventures as the president's body double.
The story follows unassuming high school teacher Dave, whose life is turned upside down when he is hired by the secret service as a stand in for the POTUS. When the commander in chief 'takes ill' under less-than-savoury circumstances, Dave is thrust into the spotlight for longer than he's used to and must gain the trust of the American people, including the president's own wife.
