13 Sep 2012
Rockers Anonymous will return to the Underground Lounge Sept. 17 for its sixth installment, Back to the BaSIX, which features rock and pop talent from the musical theatre scene performing rock 'n' roll standards in celebration of the concert's one year anniversary.
Hosted by Mike Kelton, the 9:30 PM concert will feature performances from Barrett Wilbert Weed (Lysistrata Jones, Bare), Joe Carroll (Once), Desi Oakley (Annie, Wicked), Emma Hunton (Spring Awakening, Off-Broadway's Rent), Jared Poulin (Altar Boyz national tour), Antoine Smith (Memphis), Demi Fragale, Mia Gentile, Blake Pfeil, Kathleen Rooney, Angelo Rios (Jesus Christ Superstar national tour), Michelle Dowdy (Hairspray) and Mark Ayesh.
The Rockers Anonymous band, Stirfry Massacre, includes music director James L'Esperance, Bayard Russell, Ayesh, Jason Lang and Clark Baxtresser.
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.
