THE SCREENING ROOM: All Four Installments of "The Devil's Bitch" Movie Musical with Marla Mindelle, Matthew Risch (Video)
By Adam Hetrick
This week Playbill.com presented the exclusive online premiere of "The Devil's Bitch," a new musical comedy short film created by Marla Mindelle and Jonathan Parks-Ramage, which centers on an aspiring actress who makes a mostly-irresistible deal with the devil.
Mindelle, who belted out "The Life I Never Led" in the Broadway premiere of Sister Act and is set to appear in the Broadway premiere of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, stars in the comedy that she co-wrote and executive-produced with Parks-Ramage.
Jake Honig directed "The Devil's Bitch," which features choreography by Connor Gallagher and is produced by Katherine Paige Picariello and Kim Lessing.
The cast also features Matthew Risch (Other Desert Cities, Pal Joey) as the Devil, Josh Segarra (Lysistrata Jones), Jeanna De Waal (Carrie, American Idiot), Philip Drennen, Taurean Everett and Jonathan Beard.
"The Devil's Bitch" premiered as part of the 2012 Friar's Club Film Festival.
It features music by up-and-coming composer Will Van Dyke, who was featured in the first installment of Playbill.com's "Contemporary Songwriters You Should Know."
Here's how it's described: "'The Devil's Bitch' is about a girl who sells her soul to the Devil for fame, fortune and bigger boobs. In return, she must commit Satanic deeds – musically. It's dark, it's campy, and it features some of your favorite Broadway stars singing about pot smoking and murder. Think of it as the 'anti-'Glee.'"
