Dec 8, 9, 14, 15 at Lillian Theatre in Hollywood: our brand-new, one-act, rock-festival version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” We are using some of the GrooveLily score we wrote for our 2006 production, plus much more new music! Gene is remaining on the east coast for these dates, but sends a thumbs-up from New Jersey.
Check out our one-take home video, recorded in our apartment Monday morning, of me and Bren performing the overture to A LITTLE MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.
Ovation-winning director/choreographer Janet Roston leads a cast of 11 + Brendan and me into the madness: a 90-minute rollicking collision of rock, iambic pentameter and glow sticks where rock stars Titania and Oberon quarrel over an electric guitar, circus performer Puck creates havoc and roadie Bottom finally gets a chance to shine. Featuring: Kyle Cooper, Dana Dugan, David Haverty, Hope Lauren, James Lynch, Brendan Milburn, David Rodwin, Matt Steele, Hannah Mae Sturges, Katy Tang, Johanna Watts, Valerie Vigoda and Danielle Wigfall. Tickets available (only $10!) here.
If you’re in LA, please come! If not, send your SoCal friends–this is going to kick booty.
