The New York premiere of Methtacular!, Steven Strafford's humorous and harrowing account of his life as a crystal methamphetamine addict in Chicago, begins performances Aug. 30 at the Playroom Theatre in Manhattan.
Directed by kef theatrical productions artistic director Adam Fitzgerald, the limited engagement continues through Sept. 23. Opening night is set for Sept. 2.
Methtacular! is written and performed by Strafford (Spamalot Las Vegas, Peter Pan national tour) and is described as "a roller coaster ride of a play." The evening, according to producers, "journeys into the depths of Strafford's drug-addled, sex-crazed life through stories, songs and 'Facts of Life' references."
Other members of the creative team include John McDaniel (music supervision and arrangements) and Aaron Rhyne (video design).
Methtacular! is presented by kef theatrical productions in partnership with Justin Brill (Wicked national tour).
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
