Things to Ruin Company to Gather at Midtown Pub Jan. 16

News   Things to Ruin Company to Gather at Midtown Pub Jan. 16 The cast of Joe Iconis' theatrical rock concert Things to Ruin, which recently lost its home when the Zipper Factory abruptly closed this week, will gather at Dalton's Bar and Grill to perform Jan. 16.

Things to Ruin, which returned to the Zipper Factory Jan. 9 and was scheduled to play Fridays through Feb. 27, is among the many shows facing uncertain futures since the funky midtown venue announced that it closed its doors Jan. 13.

The free 8 PM event at Dalton's will allow the cast and fans of the show to "make some noise" and keep the momentum going for Things to Ruin, which is currently in the process of locating a new venue. Performances from the show are expected.

John Simpkins directs the work, which press notes state, explores "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."

The cast includes Nick Blaemire (Glory Days), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Addams Family), Badia Farha (Paper Mill's Little Shop of Horrors), Sarah Glendening (Mask), Ian Kagey, Lance Rubin (The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks), Brent Stranathan, Mike Pettry, Eric William Morris (Coram Boy) and Jason "SweetTooth" Williams.

Joe Iconis is a recipient of both the Jonathan Larson Award and the Daryl Roth Award. His musicals include ReWrite, The Black Suits and The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks. For further information visit MrJoeIconis.com.
