Shauna is \"amazed that I am so much apart of this character Kat. I found myself
calling everyone I knew, asking them what they did the night before to prepare for
their wedding day. Some of the stories are tragically hilarious!\"

These are the characters and their stories of the delightful and intimate new
musical, TOMORROW MORNING by British composer Laurence Mark Wythe, which will have
it's American Premiere production at The Spirit of Broadway Theater (SBT) beginning
Wednesday, June 25 at 8pm and running through Sunday, July 27, 2008.

TOMORROW MORNING had it's British Premiere in Hampstead, London at the New End
Theatre in 2006. The London production was awarded Third Place in the U.K's Theatre
Radio's Best Musical of 2006, losing only to AVENUE Q and WICKED, yet beating out
West End powerhouse productions of SUNDAY IN THE PARK, DIRTY DANCING and SPAMALOT.
The show was presented by Theatre Building Chicago in at the Stages Festival of New
Musicals in August 2007, and was also a Top 20 finalist for the National Alliance
for Musical Theatre's annual festival of new works in New York in October.

The American Premiere production is being directed by SBT founding Artistic
Director, Brett A. Bernardini, Orchestrations by Richard Guastamachio, Musical
Direction by Paul Feyer and Lighting Design by Glenn J. Michaud. The cast for the
production stars Lisa Foss (AEA) as Catherine, Shauna Goodgold as Kat, Jeremy Jonet
as John and Frank Calamaro as Jack.

"As promised, we have been delivering an amazing season of professional theater with
the finest in talent" said SBT Board President, Mark Barry. "Our audiences wanted
more from us this year and we have been delivering. Our most recent show, THE LAST
SESSION, was an amazing production with Kevin Wood headlining the cast.

TOMORROW MORNING features four gifted actors and a story and musical score that is
the perfect addition to anyone's summer! We are continuing to deliver the innovation
and professional production our audiences have grown to expect. TOMORROW MORNING is
certainly going to live up to those a big way!"

"When I was planning the season last year, I found this show and knew it had to
start its\' American journey at The Spirit of Broadway Theater" said Spirit of
Broadway Artistic Director, Brett A. Bernardini. "This is a delightful, engaging,
tuneful and moving show about being in love. It's small cast and memorable music
just screamed for it to be produced first at SBT. We have hired an orchestrator who
has given the show a very American Pop Musical Theater flavor. I have been working
with the author to re-focus the show for American audiences and remove the British
colloquialisms. We have re-ordered many of the events to sharpen its\' story-telling
and the results are very, very exciting! Audiences are going to love
this...especially the surprise of the show."

"I read this show as part of SBT's Reader Circle program last fall" said SBT
subscriber, Jan Hendrickson. "I loved reading this. I really liked the music, it was
so touching and yet at other times, it made me laugh out loud! I loved SBT's
production of GLIMMERGLASS, and then I fell in love with THE LAST SESSION.
Watch...I'll be falling in love with this show next! What a season!!"

"We live so much of our lives on auto-pilot", said Bernardini. "We don't take the
time to nurture our relationships. We take them for granted; be they friendships or
more intimate. We yearn for those days of when we 'first' discovered the other
person and how they make us feel, but we do so little to keep that feeling alive,
real and honest as time goes on. We expect things. We want things. We need things.
In the end, we often up as alone as we started. TOMORROW MORNING reminds us that to
take anything for granted is to give it up. How sad."
