Hamilton's Sydney James Harcourt
to lead NYC reading of PopStar Musical
- Broadway World
With a dynamic original score – infused with dance and pop music – written by one of the industry’s leading songwriting teams, PopStar is an emotionally uplifting new musical for audiences of all ages.
Fallen Hollywood record label executive “Buzz” Michaelson needs to find the next big thing in pop music. Driven by the multi-platinum careers of his previous discoveries, a deep passion for the recording industry and the quest for fame, he seeks out a teenage prodigy in the wilds of Idaho. As Buzz pledges to mentor the boy and support the teen’s grandmother, he soon learns the price of developing a new musical sensation might cost him more than his heart can handle.
