The reading drew a large crowd of theater, wrestling, rock professionals, and fans, which has earned the musical a second elevated reading, set for spring 2020 at the Triad Theater.
Tomorrow at noon (EST) (August 2, 2019) a short documentary will be released on Mr. Kelly's official Youtube channel regarding the initial development and first reading of the musical. The film titled "Rockquiem for a Wrestler" is directed by Shuyao Chen, a graduate student, at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
In conjunction with the release of the documentary, a Go Fund Me campaign will be launching tomorrow at noon (EST) (August 2, 2019) to raise additional funds for the elevated reading.
