News   Hairspray's Jibson to Be Part of Fringe Festival's Bye, Bye Big Guy
 
The New York International Fringe Festival will present the premiere of the new musical with a fairy-tale twist, Bye, Bye Big Guy, Aug. 20–25.

Press notes describe the production as "an irreverent, musical satire . . . a memorial to the late, great, gold-spinner, Rumplestiltskin. Snow White, Dr. Jack Sprat, Goldilocks and a multitude of dwarfs are just a few of the guests who gather to pay their last respects and find out if they might win the Stiltskin fortune." The producers note this is not a musical for children.

The cast boasts Broadway's Danielle Lee Greaves (Hairspray, Rent); Carly Jibson (Hairspray); Jill Abramovitz (Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me); Orville Mendoza (Pacific Overtures, Adrift in Macao) and Michael Gerrard.

Bye, Bye Big Guy features music by David Evans (Birds of Paradise, A...My Name is Alice), lyrics by Faye Greenberg (High School Musical) and a book by Michael Slade (Thanksgiving at MCC).

The creative team includes musical direction by Torquil Munro, set designs by David Newell and costuming by Karen Ann Ledger.

Bye, Bye Big Guy will play the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Tickets are $15 and available by calling (212) 279-4488 or by visiting www.fringenyc.org The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located at 121 Christopher St. (between Bleecker St. and Hudson St.) in New York.
