Written by Nicola Barber, Will Brumley, Brooke Fox and Kurt Gellersted, Williamsburg! The Musical features music by Gellersted, lyrics by Fox and will be directed and choreographed by Deborah Wolfson.
According to press notes, Williamsburg! The Musical "is a hilarious pop/rock parody of Brooklyn's over-hyped hipster 'hood. A suicidal trust-funder encounters a disenchanted Chasidic Jew in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. On their potholed road to love, they battle a greedy real estate agent whose diabolical plan to overtake the neighborhood spawns an army of zombie-like hipsters. Will the unlikely heroes of Williamsburg band together to save the sub-borough? Or will gentrification reign?"
The cast for Williamsburg! The Musical will include Colin Israel, Allison Guinn, Evan Shyler, Nicola Barber, Maranda Barskey, Roberto Carrasco, Jessica Crouch, Adam Enright, Allison Guinn, Erin Hall, Anna Jayne Marquardt, Terry Palasz, Evan Shyer, Damien Deshaun Smith and Jesse Teeters.
The creative team comprises sets by Michael Wilson Morgan, costumes by Jennifer Rogian, lighting by Alison May and sound by Gennaro Marletta III.
