The rock 'n' roll musical uses the metaphor of a rock band to tell the story of one life. Press notes describe The Existents as "a live, rock-n-roll theatrical experience about the life of a rock-n-roll band. A 'VH-1: Behind the Music'-esque formula [tells] the story of a fictitious band, The Existents, and their incredible and almost immediate climb to music superstardom. Along the way, the very dynamics that brought them to success, tears them apart, eventually, leading to tragedy." Penned by a trio of Broadway rockers, The Existents features book, music and lyrics by Ty Taylor (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, TV's "Rockstar: INXS"), additional book credit by Jason Wooten (The Times They Are A Changin', The Rocky Horror Show Live!) and additional book and lyrics by Douglas Crawford (Grease!, Jersey Boys).
The authors also star in the work, featuring Espinosa, Kyle Lowder ("The Bold and the Beautiful"), Carly Thomas-Smith (Rent) and newcomer Deandra Williams.
The Existents will play Whisky A Go Go at 9 PM. Whisky A Go Go is located at 8901 Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles. Further information is available by visiting www.whiskyagogo.com.
