|KATE ROCKWELL and MAYA DAYS
Star in Concert Reading of New Musical
" FOUNTAIN OF YOU"
Book and lyrics by TASHA GORDON-SOLMON
Music by FAYE CHIAO
at The Green Room 42
Monday, May 23 at 9:30 PM
The Green Room 42 will present a special concert reading of the new musical, Fountain of You, on Monday May 23 at 9:30 PM. Fountain of You features book and lyrics by Tasha Gordon-Solmon and music by Faye Chiao, and stars Kate Rockwell (Mean Girls, Bring it On The Musical) and Maya Days (Rent, Aida). The show is an irreverent, feminist musical satirizing our preoccupation with youth and beauty, and the patriarchal system underlying it all. When a thirty-something actress is suddenly aged out of the industry, she undergoes an unconventional spa procedure in the hopes of getting her old life back. But it sets her on a whole new path to achieve true power and equality... at a cost. Tickets are available HERE .
The cast also features Chris Collins-Pisano, Caitlin Ort, Maria Sylvia Norris, and Allie Re. The piece is directed by Chloe Treat, with musical direction Or Matias.
Fountain of You will be presented on Monday, May 23 at 9:30 PM. Tickets are $15-49 at the door or online at The Green Room 42. Livestream tickets are also available. For additional information visit: www.facebook.com/FountainofYouMusical

Some select regional theater highlights include Maria Von Trapp in The Sound of Music (Muny), Carrie Piperidge in Carousel (Arena Stages), Belle in Beauty and the Beast (Muny), and Mabel Normand in the world premiere of Hollywood (La Jolla Playhouse). Rockwell released her debut solo album, Back To My Roots, in 2018 on Broadway Records, and has performed her solo concert by the same name at Birdland Jazz Club, City Winery, and other venues in NYC.

Chloe Treat (Director) is a New York-based director and choreographer. Born and raised in the great, if not wildly problematic state of Texas; she directs and choreographs big ass musicals.

She's also worked on a lot of impressive shows but reading a list is boring. If you're really dying to know about her many notable achievements, they are listed on her website: www.chloe-treat.com.
