Voca People Opens Off-Broadway July 12 at the Westside Theatre

News   Voca People Opens Off-Broadway July 12 at the Westside Theatre Voca People, the intergalactic new musical that combines vocal sounds, a capella singing, comedy and the art of beat box, officially opens Off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre July 12 following previews that began June 23.

Created by Lior Kalfo and Shai Fishman, Voca People is produced by Doron Lida, Revital Kalfo, Leeorna Solomons and Eva Price.

Ryan Alexander, Mercer Boffey, Laura Dadap, Emily Drennan, Tiago Grade, Chelsey Keding, Jermaine Miles, Christine Paterson, Gavriel Savit and Jonathan Shew make up the group of "snow-white ruby-lipped aliens" who sing in perfect harmony without any musical instruments.

The Voca People, according to press notes, "believe music is the source of life that brings harmony, joy and refueling. A performance bursts with over 70 well known songs that create vocal 'fireworks' and leave audiences clapping along and snapping their fingers. Voca People is the musical theater event that bridges languages, cultures, and planets."

The musical has played sold-out tours through Europe, South America and the Middle East. The Off-Broadway opening in New York City marks the first time Voca People have sung in America.

Voca People features direction and choreography by Kalfo with musical direction and arrangements by Fishman. The creative team also includes lighting designer Roy Milo, sound designer Naor Ben Meir and costume designer Hana Yefet. The Westside Theatre is located at 407 W. 43rd Street.
