Broadway Behaving Badly, described as "the Most Offensive Night of Music Theatre" with tunes by rising songwriters, is offered Jan. 7 at Joe's Pub in New York City.
Presented by songwriter Drew Gasparini, the 11:30 PM concert is hosted by Marc Summers, who is known for hosting the Nickelodeon reality shows "What Would You Do?" and "Double Dare."
Directed by Stephen Agosto (Crazy, Just Like Me) with music direction by Charlie Rosen (associate conductor of Broadway's Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), the evening features performances from Morgan Karr (Spring Awakening), Andrew Kober (Hair), Will Blum (The Book of Mormon), Nadia Quinn (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Brandon Ellis (Once), Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones), Monet Sabel, Keith White, Emily Kay Shrader, JD Daw, Meggie Cansler and Trent Mills.
Here's how the concert is described: "For the first time anywhere, Drew Gasparini is assembling New York's most esteemed composers to write the most offensive awful, graphic and hilarious songs to grace the stage. This completely R-rated comedy delves into the issues that matter. Like sexism. Racism. And why two siblings who love each other can't get married in the state of New York."
Broadway Behaving Badly features tunes by Gasparini, Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk (The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown), Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond (Dani Girl), Zoe Sarnak (A Lasting Impression), Michael Kimmel ("Turn Of The Screw"), Alex Wyse (Bare, Lysistrata Jones), F. Michael Haynie (Wicked), Alex Brightman (Wicked), Michael R. Jackson, Kelly McIntyre, Daniel Green, Michael Shapiro and David Christensen, Jonathan Monro and Summer & Eve.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
