Sometimes the phony commercialism and saccharine spirit of the holidays can get to people. If that happens to you, you might need to take a right in the Hellcab to get your Christmas mojo back. Playwright Will Kern's landmark work follows a cab driver on the longest night of his life, a bitterly cold Christmas Eve. Throughout his long shift, the eclectic collection of passengers includes a trio of drug-addicts, a born-again couple, a smug lawyer, and a randy duo on their way to a motel. A former cab driver himself, Kern drew from personal experience to create this alternately frightening, hilarious and poignant journey. Learn More
Two time Indie Soap Award winner and fast growing soap opera webseries, Empire, presents Empire’s Got Talent an intimate show full of songs, sneak peeks and surprises!
Performances will range from stand-up comedy to burlesque acts to performances of familiar and original songs. “The tag line for the evening is ‘sometimes their hidden talents don’t make the web series’ and it’s so true,” says co-producer Greg Turner. “We write the series to play on everyone’s strength as an actor, but as performers, they have so much more to offer outside of the context of their characters. A lot of our cast members are incredible singers and everyone has amazing hidden talents. Empire’s Got Talent will give our brilliant cast a chance to shine in ways you haven’t seen before.”
Scheduled to appear are Empire cast members Afton Boggiano, Orlagh Cassidy, Ryan Clardy, Annalisa Derr, Ellen Dolan, Chris J Handley, von Hottie, Nick Lewis, and Yvonne Perry as well special guest Martha Byrne (Gotham, As The World Turns) and series creators Brian Hewson and Greg Turner. Byrne, Hewson and Turner are also collaborating on a new web venture.
The event will also include a live auction, feauturing unique Empire related items. All proceeds from the evening will help to fund the upcoming fourth season of Empire.
