Constantine Maroulis, Rachel Potter and More to Sing Gay Bride of Frankenstein at Joe's Pub
22 Jun 2012
Gay Bride of Frankenstein, the new musical which has been aiming for an Off-Broadway life, will celebrate the release of an EP of songs from the production June 25 at Joe's Pub.
Created by Dane E. Leeman (book) and Billy Butler (book, music and lyrics), Gay Bride of Frankenstein will receive an 11:30 PM concert presentation at the Pub. A five-track EP of songs from the musical was just released by co-writer Butler and his band The Monster Makers.
It is characterized as a "pop/rock, fairy tale musical that follows the exploits of four high school friends on one fateful Halloween night at a very unconventional Monsters Ball. It's John Hughes meets Scooby-Doo, and asks the age old question: 'Will the girl get the girl?'"
Gay Bride of Frankenstein was staged at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2009. An Off-Broadway run had previously been announced for the 2011-12 season; no dates of production have been announced. The musical was originally produced as a workshop at The Players' Ring in Portsmouth, NH.

Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
