MONDAYS:

Miss Casted

As actors we always face the same old story. That there are always roles in which you will never, never, never be cast – you are the wrong gender, too old, too short, too blonde or just wrong. You’re cast as a Maria in West Side Story but you want to sing as Tony or You would love to perform the song Popular but your stuck in Dancing Through Life land. In this musical revue, Broadway’s greatest musicals meet Broadway’s greatest satirist in this hilarious, loving, and endlessly entertaining tribute to some of the theatre’s greatest stars and songwriters. Where you are not  the wrong gender, too old, too short, too blonde or just wrong for any role you bring in to workshop.
