The production is billed as follows, "This musical play by Progressive Theatre Workshop Founder John J. Caswell, Jr. imagines Westboro Baptist Church matriarch Shirley Phelps-Roper as recently deceased and damned to Hell for all eternity where she is forced to perform songs from the Westboro catalog in an outrageously offensive fire and brimstone cabaret act for an audience of 'fag-enablers.'"
Markey will star as Phelps-Roper. She will be accompanied by a full rock band.
God Hates This Show features choreography by Sean Roschman and musical arrangements by Kurt Gellersted and Brooke Fox. The design team includes Aaron Crosby (costumes), Wolfram Ott (lighting design) and Olivia Sebesky (projections).
The Oct. 31 concert is produced by Progressive Theatre Workshop.
