The cast includes Hunter Foster (Jack), Terrance Mann (Wood), Fyvush Finkel (Orlando) and Kaitlin Hopkins (Liberty). The music and lyrics are by David Kirshenbaum (Summer of ‘42) and the book is by Daniel Goldfarb (Modern Orthodox).

Press notes describe the show as follows: “Part farce, part fable, Party Comes Here offers a hilarious collision of cultures as tantalizing as the sexiest city in the world. Mistaken identity, spirituality, hope, family, sex—all set to irresistible Latin rhythms…This is an outrageous, oddball, optimistic, ohmygod, o ne-of-a-kind show.”

A reading of the musical took place in September 2005 at the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s 17th Annual Festival of New Musicals. The reading was directed by Lonny Prince and also featured Hunter Foster, Terrence Mann and Fyvush Finkel.

The TBG Theatre is located at 312 West 36th Street.
