Gloryday - a musical act from "See What I Want to See"

My current project is a five person 30 minute musical that I'll be presenting in workshop on November 21st. It's hard work, and a lot to stay on top of, but I have a remarkable dream team cast. Everyone of them is talented and fun to work with. Oh and they can sing their faces off too!

GLORYDAY, set in present-day New York City, introduces a priest during a crisis of faith after a terrible tragedy strikes the city. Disillusioned and angry, he plays a practical joke and posts an anonymous letter in Central Park, declaring that Christ will appear, rising from the pond. At first, the joke is embraced by an unstable CPA, who has chosen to live in the wilds of the park. Soon others begin to believe in the miracle, including a drug-addicted actress and a bitter reporter—even the priest's atheist aunt. On the day of the miracle, a storm blows through the Park, and only the priest sees his lie become a truth.

Sounds like a very interesting show and I'm sure it will be fabulous.
