Karen Mason and Tony nominee Mark Jacoby will lead the cast of the Goodspeed Musicals production of Snapshots: A Musical Scrapbook, a new work that borrows from the catalogue of composer Stephen Schwartz. Directed by Daniel Goldstein (who helmed the recent Broadway revival of Schwartz's Godspell), performances of the romantic comedy will begin October 24 at the Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, CT.
Conceived by Michael Scheman and book writer David Stern (The Scottsboro Boys), Snapshots blends some of the best-loved music from Schwartz's Broadway shows, including Wicked, Pippin and Godspell, along with some of his lesser-known tunes. The musical follows Sue (Mason) and Dan (Jacoby), a couple who, after 20 years of marriage, have drifted apart. Together they discover a box of photographs which leads them to relive the memories of their past selves captured in the snapshots.
In addition to Mason and Jacoby, the cast of Snapshots will feature Broadway alums Elizabeth Stanley (Company) as Susan and Matthew Scott (Jersey Boys) as Daniel, as well as Ephie Aardema as Susie and Dan DeLuca as Danny.
Mason has been seen on Broadway in Wonderland, Hairspray, Mamma Mia!, Sunset Boulevard, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway and Play Me a Country Song. Jacoby received a Tony nomination for Show Boat. He also starred in the original Broadway productions of Ragtime and Elf. His other Broadway credits include The Phantom of the Opera, Grand Hotel and Sweet Charity.
