20 Sep 2011
Max Crumm, the reality TV contestant who made his Broadway debut in the revival of Grease, can be seen in Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin' Rock Opera, part of the FringeNYC Encore Series, which is playing The Players Theatre through Sept. 24.
Penned by Daniel Franzese and Hanna LoPatin, who star as Ronnie and Sammi, Jersey Shoresical is produced by Samantha Scharff and directed by Groundlings alum Drew Droege. The cast also features Willam Belli.
Song titles include "Snooki's Lament," "GTL" and "I F'n Love you, I F'n Hate you." The new musical, press notes state, "gives America’s favorite Guidos and Guidettes a Broadway makeover with a Greek Chorus of drunk girls, a lot of laughs and surprising amount of heart."
Remaining show times are Sept. 21 at 3 PM and 7 PM, Sept. 22 at 10 PM, Sept. 23 at 10:30 PM and Sept. 24 at 8 PM.
The Players Theatre is located at 115 MacDougal St., between Bleecker and W. 3rd St. For tickets visit www.jerseyshoresical.com or www.fringenyc.org.
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.
