Into the Weeds, which plays The West Bank Café and is produced by Dog Run Rep, is an eclectic sampling of songs written and performed over the last forty 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. D'Abruzzo is only the latest guest star at the West Bank. On Aug. 19, Annie Golden joined the show for one performance, followed by Felicia Finley on Aug. 26.
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.
