New York, NY -- The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director, Marie Grace LaFerrara, Executive Director) "Where Musicals Come to Life," will present developmental readings of InunDATED, A New Musical, with book by Alice Scovell, music and lyrics by Christine Lavin, music direction by Beth Falcone and directed by Christine Pedi.

Please RSVP to boxoffice@yorktheatre.org. These presentations are part of The York Theatre Company's Developmental Reading Series.

Synopsis: They say "it only takes one," but it's tough to find him in a city of 8.8 million. Just ask Lucy, a singer-songwriter whose new mission is to date every guy with a shred of potential. It seems she has to slog through 999,999 guys to get to her one-in-a-million. At least she has material for her songs.

Cast: Sierra Boggess (Harmony, School of Rock, It Shoulda Been You, The Phantom of the Opera, Master Class, Love Never Dies, The Little Mermaid) as Lucy and Josh Grisetti (Something Rotten, It Shoulda Been You, Enter Laughing at The York, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") as Everybody Else. The stage manager is Shanna Allison (The Lieutenant, Carmelina and Marry Harry_).
