Featuring the songs of Sean Altman and the LaGreca Brothers, Minimum Wage began previews Sept. 28 and officially opened Oct. 20 at the Theatres at 45 Bleecker Street. The production will have played a total of 13 previews and 30 regular performances.
The musical features a cast including Jeff LaGreca, Charlie LaGreca, Tony Daussat, Elena M. Schloss and Bill Caleo, who were not only the actors, but also served as their own beat-box instruments.
The production is described as "an a cappella musical in which five hapless staffers of a Big Brother-type fast food chain attempt to initiate new trainees (the audience) into the wonders of Hamburgerology. Working their way from the bottom all the way to the middle, these underachieving fast-food employees spend their days experiencing psychopathic French fry hallucinations and the occasional sci-fi spatula battle. [Song titles include] 'Kooky The Happy Burger Klown' (an upbeat hypochondriac circus tune), 'G-R-I Double-L' (a boy-meets-GRILL pop, serenade) and 'Balls' (a melodic motto about taking life by the…oh you know)."
Minimum Wage is directed by Guy Stroman with musical direction by Will Bryan and movement by Scott Rinc.
