Jaws the Musical

It's been a while since I've blogged! Just been too busy with classes and life and starting rehearsals for "Jaws the Musical." You heard me right: Jaws the Musical. It's a half hour sketch comedy pop-rock musical that has the zaniness of SNL combined with heart-felt humor like Avenue Q.

The writer, Wayne Henry and I worked on a show together a few years ago called "Johnny on a Spot." It was a very fun play from the '40s, and our characters were the comic relief. We never shared a scene together, though, so every time we'd meet backstage we'd say, "We have to do a show together - where we're onstage at the same time!"

Along came JAWS the Musical.

Wayne wrote the show for the Strawberry One Act Festival a few years ago, and it was very well-received, so he's putting it back "out there" (just when you thought it was safe) to see how other theatre-goers respond.

We've had a lot of great response so far. The title alone seems to get people excited! And it's a really fun show. We start performances next month, running in theatres and comedy clubs throughout NY and NJ. I'll keep ya posted on dates and places.
