Casting has been announced for the Off-Broadway world premiere of the Joe Iconis musical Bloodsong of Love, a rock 'n' roll spaghetti western, which begins performances at Ars Nova April 1.



Iconis' frequent collaborator John Simpkins will direct the production that officially opens April 15 and runs through May 9. Iconis penned book, music and lyrics for Bloodsong.

The cast will feature Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Hairspray, Jerry Springer), MK Lawson (42nd Street), Eric William Morris (Mamma Mia!, Coram Boy), Jeremy Morse, Lance Rubin (Things to Ruin) and Jason 'SweetTooth' Williams.

"In a blood and whiskey-soaked world of shoot 'em ups, stolen brides and kazoo-wielding villains, a rogue musician with a killer guitar is out to set things right," press notes state.

Designers include Michael Schweikardt (set design), Michelle Humphrey (costume design), Chris Dallos (lighting design), Jonathan Weston (sound design), Eric Reynolds (prop design), Jen Werner (choreography) and Matt Hinkley (music direction).
