This show was a SCREAM and the theater was beautiful! What a wacky, funny, and highly entertaining experience with terrific writing, acting and singing, fabulous Bowie music, and plenty of off the wall humor ;-). Bowie, Bizarro Bowie, Freddy Mercury, Marianne, and Iggy were ALL AMAZING!!

This one of kind variety show spectacular, snatched from the archives of 1977, brings the kind of star power that only ‘Ziggy Stardust’ can command. Character appearances by Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Iggy Pop, Marianne Faithfull, Paul Lynde, Charo, and the Ghost of Freddy Mercury, will take audience members on an exciting journey of song and dance reminding us all of the joys of brotherhood and giving. But when the mysterious “Bizarro Bowie” appears to reveal his scattered past, it’s a race against time and space to save the holidays from the ultimate universal implosion.
Writer/Director Steven Attanasie, whose previous New Millennium credits include Cubicle: An Office Space Musical and Manos: Rock Opera of Fate, believes the production came from the bottomless pit of some network archive. “Thinking about a David Bowie special that never aired was all the spark I needed even though it has resulted in several mental breakdowns. When you’re dealing with the kind of egos that these characters bring out in actors, you kind of expect that,” says Attanassie.
