Longboat Key writer's musical hits the road

   A few weeks back, Longboat Key playwright Philip Hall learned that, for the first time, one of his musicals would be getting a full-fledged New York City production.
   Now he's found out that, once that production winds up its New York run, it'll go on the road.
   Hall's musical "Life on The Mississippi" is based on Mark Twain's memoir, and it's set to open at the WorkShop Theater in Manhattan on Nov. 1. (You can read more about Hall and his work here:
  WorkShop Theater had been developing Hall's musical for three years, and it turns out that people who run the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, Conn., (where Twain lived from 1874 until 1891) saw one of the preliminary productions and loved it. 
   So after the musical finishes its three-week New York run, it's moving to the Mark Twain House, where it will open Dec. 14.
