Guiding Light's Robert Newman (Josh Lewis) will be joining the cast of "Sessions" beginning on Friday, May 29. He will be playing Dr. Peter Peterson in the musical. It tells the story of a New York therapist's attempts to balance his patients' needs with his own, a situation complicated by the advances of an attractive female subject.
Albert M. Tapper wrote the book and music for this clever and candid musical which is being directed by Thomas Coté. It is is currently playing off-Broadway at the Algonquin Theater (123 East 24th Street) with Tony Sportiello/Algonquin Theatre Productions and Jason Hewitt as its producers.
Newman will be joining a cast of able stage vets including Bertilla Baker, Al Bundonis, Maya Days, Scott Richard Foster, Ken Jennings, Liz Larsen, Kelli Maguire and Sky Seals.
Performances of "Sessions" will run from Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM with 3 PM matinées on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Because of Guiding Light's shooting schedule, Newman's role will be played by Dennis Holland for the Wednesday matinées.
