* The performance of Things To Ruin: The Songs of Joe Iconis reunited much of the original cast of Things to Ruin, who performed in the work during its Second Stage and Zipper Factory runs in 2009. Iconis was joined Blaemire and Dideriksen, as well as Ian Kagey, Eric William Morris, Mike Pettry, Lance Rubin, Ben Arons and Jason "Sweet Tooth" Williams as well as newcomers Carrie Manolakos and Starr Busby.
Things to Ruin promises songs "about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don’t have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to."
