With his acclaimed musical Be More Chill currently in previews on Broadway, Joe Iconis will welcome a second production to New York City this summer: the musical comedy Broadway Bounty Hunter starring Annie Golden.
Inspired by the exploitation films of the 1970s, like Shaft or Enter the Dragon, the musical follows a 60-year-old, down-on-her-luck actor named Annie (Golden), who is asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord.
Broadway Bounty Hunter will begin performances July 9 at Greenwich House Theater, where it will officially open July 23. The musical, which is directed and choreographed by Jennifer Werner, features music and lyrics by Iconis and a book by Iconis, Lance Rubin (Denton Little's Deathdate), and Jason SweetTooth Williams (Be More Chill actor).
Broadway Bounty Hunter received its world premiere at Barrington Stage Company in 2016, starring Golden.
The remainder of the cast of the Off-Broadway premiere will be announced at a later date.
Rounding out the creative team are scenic designer Michael Schweikardt (Rags at Goodspeed), Tony Award-winning lighting designers Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer (Assassins, Ragtime, Once on this Island), costume and wig designer Sarafina Bush (Gettin’ The Band Back Together, associate), projection designer Brad Peterson (Junk, Oslo, Cats), sound designer Cody Spencer (Here Lies Love), music supervisor and orchestrator Charlie Rosen (Be More Chill), vocal arranger Joel Waggoner (Presto Change-o composer), music director Geoffrey Ko (Be More Chill, associate), and artistic consultant Nehemiah Luckett.
Production management is by Tinc Productions; the stage manager is E. Sara Barnes, and the general manager is KGM Theatrical.
The limited Off-Broadway engagement is scheduled through September 15.
