EXPOSURE, a fearless and empowering new work currently in development, was the winner of FWD Theatre Project, a Chicago-based organization dedicated to the discovery, development, and delivery of the new American musical. EXPOSURE follows a “discarded” female youth, who projects as a male and most specifically as James Dean, as she tries to navigate the treacherous homeless systems in Chicago. When she crosses paths with a disgruntled former star-photographer, she reignites his artistic imagination. He has visions of using her as his muse while desperately trying to recreate his earlier success. Ever present, the relentless spirit of James Dean shadows our homeless girl and becomes a force of comfort, friction and eventually salvation. Come hear the innovative and captivating score that has enamored audiences and stars alike.
The concert cast includes Matthew Morrison, Krystal Joy Brown, Chris Dwan, Tracy Jai Edwards, Jenn Gambatese,Jess Godwin, Matthew Saldivar, Paul Stovall, Lillias White, Virginia Woodruff, David Yazbek, and more to be announced.
