JUN 14, 2014 – CLOWN BAR re-opens at The Box!

Posted in Uncategorized

Adam Szymkowicz’s hilarious clown noir play, for which I wrote music and additional song lyrics, is returning to the stage after its first smash run last year! Opening at one of the coolest venues in NYC, The Box, at 189 Chrystie Street. Produced by Pipeline Theatre Company, directed by Andrew Neisler, and featuring a hilarious cast.

Get tickets here!

From Pipeline’s website:

Clown Bar, a clown noir, a must-see, critically acclaimed, one-of-a-kind experience, returns by popular demand to the lower east side this summer.

Step into The Box this summer and you’ll find yourself transported to Clown Bar, a speakeasy style cabaret replete with clown mobsters, strippers, crooners, addicts, and one dashing square-jawed detective. Put on your red nose, throw back your shot of extra-funny, and get swept into this immersive who-done-it as bad-guy-gone-good Happy Mahoney confronts his past in a vengeful attempt to solve his beloved brother Timmy’s murder.

Entry begins at 7:30PM. No entry after 8:15PM.
Arrive at 7:30PM for dinner, live music, & other delights.

Come dressed in your finest clown attire and get a shot of extra funny on the house.

UPCOMING: MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL world premiere at Bay Street Theatre!

Posted in News, Performances, Theater, Uncategorized

MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL will have its world premiere production this summer at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, NY!

From the website: “MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL is about Parker, who isn’t like anyone else. When Parker wakes up in the morning and leaves his apartment, he hears people singing, he sees people dancing – and no other person on earth knows this is happening. Because Parker’s life is a musical. And Parker hates musicals. This world premiere features a tuneful new score by Adam Overett and direction and choreography by Marlo Hunter, two rising stars of the musical theater. Follow Parker’s journey, both hilarious and human, as he struggles to hide his predicament from the world, tries to save a rock band, is pursued by a mysterious blogger, and possibly even finds love along the way.”
