Great American Trailer Park Musical Celebrates the Jerry Springer Generation, to Oct. 3 in NY Musical Fest

News   Great American Trailer Park Musical Celebrates the Jerry Springer Generation, to Oct. 3 in NY Musical Fest The Great American Trailer Park Musical, one of the more provocatively-titled new shows in The New York Musical Theatre Festival, continues performances in Manhattan to Oct. 3.

If the title doesn't grab you, maybe offers of free beer and complimentary tattoos have caught your eye. The show began previews Sept. 28.

The new musical by David Nehls (music and lyrics) and Betsy Kelso (book and direction) features a country-rock and blues score, and centers around "an agoraphobic housewife who must tear herself away from Dr. Phil long enough to leave her trailer and save her marriage," according to production notes. "Why the sudden fuss after being safely tucked away for nearly 20 years? Armadillo Acres' newest tenant — a hot, young stripper with an questionable agenda. With guidance from a trailer-trash style Greek Chorus (three local women with phobias, neurosis and hang-ups of their own), the story unfolds."

The cast includes Robin Baxter, Carter Calvert, Jenn Colella, Marya Grandy, Amanda Ryan Paige, Geoffrey Scheer and Dan Sharkey.

Remaining performances at Theatre 3 are Oct. 1 at 8 & 11 PM, Oct. 2 at 4:30 & 8 PM and Oct. 3 at 8 PM.

Tickets are $15. Theatre 3 is at 311 W. 43rd Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. For ticket information, all (212) 696-8691 or visit www.trailerparkmusical.com. For more information about the final weekend of NYMF, visit www.nymf.org.
