Steven Smeltzer directs and choreographer the new production, which will play numerous venues across the country. Corrine Aquilina serves as music director.
Following a premiere at the New York Musical Theater Festival, the work played a 2005 Off-Broadway run at Dodger Stages. Featuring music and lyrics by David Nehls with a book by Betsy Kelso, the country-rock and blues musical was billed as a "show about agoraphobia, adultery, '80s nostalgia, spray cheese, road kill, hysterical pregnancy, a broken electric chair, kleptomania, strippers, flan & disco."
The ensemble cast includes Dane Agostinis (as Duke), Doreen Barnard (Betty), Lindsay Devino (Pickles), David Howard (Norbert), Erica Livingston (Jeannie), MaryAnne Piccolo (Lin), and Sara Ruzicka (Pippi). Kenneth D'Elia and Carolyn Kimmel are the swings.
