PHOTO CALL: Marc Shaiman Joins Joe Iconis & Family at 54 Below
21 Oct 2013
Tony Award-winning songwriter Marc Shaiman (Hairspray, "Smash") joined Joe Iconis & Family for the October 18 performance at 54 Below.
Here's how the evening was billed: "Musical theatre writer Joe Iconis is about to journey to the West Coast for the world premiere of his musical The Black Suits in sunny Los Angeles. But first, he's proudly bringing his unique mash-up of showtune cabaret and rock and roll jamboree back to 54 Below, just in time for Halloween! Join Mr. Iconis and his merry band of musical theater punks as they roar their way through a set of Joe's incendiary songs, along with a few seasonally-appropriate spooky classics. The huge cast of brilliant actor/singers, lunatic musicians and legendary special guests will offer you an evening where searing character studies meet drunken back room sing-alongs. This is no mere concert. This is a great, big, howling love-letter to passionate musical theater at its best and bloodiest. Grease up your kazoo, fill your whiskey glass and stay for a while. It's going to be a helluva night."
Along with Shaiman, the cast also included Nick Blaemire, Katrina Rose Dideriksen, Seth Eliser, Alexandra Ferrara, Molly Hager, Ian Kagey, Dennis Michael Keefe, MK Lawson, Rachel Lee, Lauren Marcus, Jeremy Morse, Rob Rokicki, Charlie Rosen, Lance Rubin, Rachel Sussman, Jared Weiss and Jason SweetTooth Williams.
