Drew Lachey, the 98 Degrees star seen on Broadway in Rent and Spamalot, will play Robert Moses in a reading of the new musical Bulldozer May 22 at 12:30 PM and 6:15 PM in Manhattan.

Karen Carpenter will direct a cast that also includes Dave Thomas Brown, Tessa Grady, Ryan Knowles, and Shorey Walker.

Bulldozer, which features a book by Peter Galperin and Daniel Scot Kadin (based on a concept by Galperin) and music and lyrics by Galperin, tells the story of Robert Moses, a man who literally shaped New York through his control of its park system, streets, bridges, and tunnels.

“There could not be a more timely tale,” said Carpenter in a statement. “Moses single-handedly sold the soul of NYC to the automobile, building by decree, transcending local politics, unseen omnipotent, running roughshod over the common man—building highways at the expense of people and neighborhoods and mass transit.”
