We Three Lizas to play NYC's Joe's Pub
We Three Lizas the joyously off-kilter queer holiday musical that was a hit for About Face Theatre at the Steppenwolf Garage last winter, will get a one-night-only concert staging at New York performance venue Joe's Pub at the Public Theater on July 15. The tale of a Scrooge-like clothing designer who's visited by three incarnations of Liza Minnelli has poppy tunes by Alan Schmuckler, who's expanding his score for the new concert version, and a newly overhauled book by Scott Bradley (which will hopefully streamline the sometimes scattered storyline).
Devanand Janki will direct and choreograph the concert staging, with cast members to include David Beach, Veronica Reyes-How, Gabrielle Ruiz, Michael Rosen and the breakout star of About Face's staging, Danielle Plisz. Tickets for the New York concert are on sale now at joespub.com. Read my brief review of the original production. About Face's current show, the affecting drama The Pride, continues through July 13 at Victory Gardens.
