Description

Hey, You Know What Movie Would Make a Good Musical? is a musical satire of the current trend of turning blockbuster movies into commercial musicals. The three writers present material from their own new and “original” musicals based on movies, making for a hilarious look at the current state of Broadway.

Bogner, Faucher and Snow bring with them a wide variety of experiences working in the theater: producing, directing, choreography and acting. Misha and Jason are members of the BMI Workshop and Ryan is a member of the Dramatist’s Guild. They are also collaborating on a full-length book musical with playwright Robert Bastron (Fringe Fest Encores series ’09) that incorporates some of the same satirical topics and themes as their cabaret show.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Duplex

The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is a 70-seat off-Broadway venue that features performances of all types nightly.

Since their humble beginnings in the 1950s, under the auspices of Hal Holbrook, the Duplex's first booking manager, DCT has served as a jewel in the crown of the NYC cabaret world. Performers such as Barbra Steisand, Woody Allen, Joanne Worley, Lovelady Powell, KT Sullivan, Karen Mason and Lea Delaria all are Duplex alumns. DCT audiences have been lucky enough to catch premiere versions of hits like Nunsense; Hello Muddah! Hello Faddah!; and a slew of other new shows.

More recently, DCT has been the venue of choice for The Storefront Theatre's award-winning New Mondays series, featuring new work from composers both up-and-coming and legendary, from Frank Wildhorn to Stephen Schwartz, Charles Strouse to Galt MacDermot, Jason Robert Brown, Michael John LaChiusa, Andrew Lippa and many others. Also, DCT's popular Dowtown Revivals series features one-night-only engagements from the brightest lights on the cabaret circuit.
