The Beautiful Soup Theater Collective, who presented the rarely-seen musical A Doll's Life, offers another rarity this winter: Arthur Bicknell's cult flop Moose Murders.
The production, featuring a revised script, will open Jan. 29, 2013, and run through Feb. 10 at The Connelly Theatre.
Co-directing and starring as showbiz team (one's blind, the other is tone-deaf) Snooks and Howie will be Steven Carl McCasland and Mallory Berlin (Nora in A Doll's Life). They will be joined by Collective members Anna Kirkland (Astrid in A Doll's Life) as Hedda Holloway, Jordan Tierney as Stinky Holloway, Dennis DelBene as Sidney Holloway, Noelle Stewart as Nurse Dagmar and Orlando Iriarte as Joe Buffalo Dance. Also featured in the cast are Caroline Rosenblum (Impressionism on Broadway) as Gay Holloway, Ali Bernstein (J.A.P.) as Lauraine Holloway and Cory Boughton as Nelson Fay. Luke Anthony, Alexander Kafarakis and Brittany Velotta serve as swings; Chasmin Hallyburton stage manages. Here's a look at the production in rehearsal:
