Hello Again

SPEAKproductions, in association with TBD Productions & Martian Entertainment, announced that the film adaptation of Michael John LaChiusa’s musical Hello Again has launched with the June 2nd release of “Beyond the Moon.”  This original single debut’s in the film and was written especially for Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winning singer and actress Audra McDonald. The single was released on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and all major digital retailers. The release of this new song will be followed by a summer of film festival screenings & regional theatre-hosted sneak peek events featuring Hello Again.

Hello Again chases 10 fleeting love affairs across 10 periods in New York City history. The pursued becomes pursuer as they spin through 10 daisy-chained vignettes that come together in 1 soulful circle. Originally produced by Lincoln Center Theatre in 1994, Hello Again was nominated for 8 Drama Desks.”Beyond the Moon,” is set in 2002, when Audra McDonald’s character transforms into a “Pop Diva.” It would actually make more sense if this was the song sung during the disco era.

The film was shot on location in NYC with an ensemble cast including Audra McDonald, Emmy Winner & Tony Nominee, Martha Plimpton, Emmy & Drama Desk Nominee, T.R. Knight, Rumer Willis, Cheyenne Jackson, SAG Winner & Grammy Nominee, Jenna Ushkowitz, Teen Choice Winner, Tyler Blackburn, Sam Underwood, Nolan Gerard Funk & Al Calderon.

A regularly updated ‘sneak peek’/ film festival list with specific dates and times can be found on the film’s Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/HelloAgainMovie).  You can also connect via Twitter and Instagram at @HelloAgainMovie.

Additionally, the song reached No. 1 on the iTunes song chart in its first week of release and broke into the Billboard Top 100 with no commercial radio play.
