Lena Hall, Barrett Foa, Justin Guarini, Lesli Margherita to Ask "Who Is Villain: DeBlanks?"
09 Jul 2014
Villain: DeBlanks, a fill-in-the-blanks whodunnit featuring special guests from Broadway and beyond, will be presented for three performances beginning July 24 at 54 Below. The late-night event is a fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Written by Billy Mitchell, the 11:30 PM event asks the audience to provide nouns, verbs, adjectives, desserts and body parts. The evening's stars will enact the story that the audience creates "uncensored and unrehearsed" Mad Libs style.
Performances will be offered July 24, July 31 and Aug. 7.
Here's how the whodunnit is characterized: "Good news: Phillip DeBlanks is dead! He was a villain, a scoundrel and a lousy dancer. Or was he? Is it possible Phillip DeBlanks was framed by one of his circle of friends?”
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
