Atlantic City production outfit The D. Benjamen Brown Company has picked up the production, thus making its New York producing debut.
Into the Weeds is an eclectic sampling of songs written and performed over the last 40 years by composer-performer Bill Weeden (as well as collaborators such as Sally Fay, Ethan Fein and David Finkle). The team of Weeden, Finkle and Fay won the 1980 NACCA Award (which later became the MAC) as Best Cabaret Comedy Group. Their musical Move It and It's Yours was named New Jersey's "Best New Musical" in 1998.
The show has generated press through a string of guest appearances. Annie Golden previously visited the show on Aug. 19 and will return on Sept. 16. Other guest stars have included Stephanie D'Abruzzo, who comes back on Sept. 23, and Felicia Finley.
Into the Weeds offers free admission and a discount menu to all Broadway performers who come to the Saturday night shows. The show was recently extended to Sept. 30.
The cast includes Ted Anderson, Melissa Center, Grey Garrett, Hilary Mann, Kristen Rozanski, John Paul Skocik, Michael Vaccaro, Eddie Varley, Amanda Weeden, Bill Weeden and John Weisenburger. For reservations, call (212) 695-6909 between noon and 8 PM. For information, go to westbankcafe.com.
