News   New Political Comedy Tail! Spin!, With Rachel Dratch, Flies Off-Broadway; Complete Cast Set
 
Producers announced the full casting for the new political comedy Tail! Spin! – including SNL alum Rachel Dratch –which will begin a limited ten week engagement Off-Broadway Sept.18 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at the Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street).

Tony nominee Dan Knechtges (Lysistrata Jones) directs Mario Correa's new play, which officially opens Oct.1 at 7 PM.

Here's how the production is billed, "Politics is dirty – but politicians are dirtier. The truth is laid hysterically bare in Tail! Spin!, the wildly inventive new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Mark (“Appalachian Trail”) Sanford, Larry (“Wide Stance”) Craig, Anthony (“I Was Hacked”) Weiner and Mark (“Underage Page”) Foley. Using only the actual words of the disgraced politicians, their paramours, and the skeptical media they tried so hard to spin,Tail! Spin! winningly weaves an intricate, overlapping narrative of the power of sex - and the sex lives of the powerful."

In addition to Dratch, the Tail! Spin! cast includes Arnie Burton (39 Steps), Sean Dugan (Next Fall, “Smash”), Tom Galantich and Nate Smith.

Tail! Spin! features scenic and projection design by Caite Hevner Kemp, costume design by Jennifer Caprio, lighting design by Ryan O’Gara and sound design by John Emmett O’Brien.

The production is produced by Billy Zavelson, Marianne Mills, Ben Feldman, Kristen Stein, Flying Bulldog Productions, Paula Kaminsky Davis, Jeffrey Sosnick/Neal Rubinstein and Jamie deRoy in association with Clifford Lee Johnson III. Tickets start at $25. To purchase visit TailSpinShow.com.
