UPDATE: The Garner Galleria Theater put out this press release on Thursday
Joey McIntyre is THE KID, the youngest member of New Kids on the Block, the biggest “boy band” in history (and no, The Beatles are not a “boy band”). In this inspiring, entertaining, and deeply personal coming-of-age story, Joey takes the audience from his hometown of Boston to sold-out stadium tours, when three generations of family drama becomes three decades of stage dreams. With music from his childhood, music he helped make famous, and music that inspires him, THE KID is about the power of family–the family we’re born to, the families we make– and how sometimes finding your own voice starts with learning how to listen.
This developmental production of a new musical is directed by Eli Gonda and written with Christine Boylan. THE KID shows us that every stage is different—and you may have to play them all before you find your stage.
DENVER — He rose to fame as one of the New Kids on the Block, but singer Joey McIntyre is about to work a different kind of stage.
Denver’s Garner Galleria Theater confirmed that the singer-actor is producing and starring in a one-man show about his own life that is set to debut in the Mile High City.
The show is called “The Kid,” and it’s a work in progress. Rehearsals will start on Wednesday, according to sources. Producers are being tight-lipped, but it now appears that McIntyre’s show will open at the Garner Galleria Theatre at the end of August, and run for two weeks.
It does, of course, feature music.
“We are thrilled Joey McIntyre is interested in working on his theatrical piece here in Denver at The Garner Galleria Theatre,” Garner Galleria spokesperson Heidi Bosk said. “Denver Center subscribers will have priority access to purchase tickets, and we’ll have more details to come on this exciting project.”
