Joe Iconis & Family, produced by Jennifer Ashley Tepper, will be held April 15 at 7 PM, April 20 at 11 PM, April 26 at 11 PM and May 5 at 7 PM.
Here's how the evening is billed: "Join Mr. Iconis and his merry band of musical theater punks as they roar their way through a set of Joe's incendiary songs. 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."
Iconis penned the Drama Desk Award-nominated Bloodsong of Love, The Black Suits, ReWrite and The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks as well as the theatrical concert Things to Ruin. His songs have also appeared on the second season of the NBC musical drama "Smash." For more on his work, read the Playbill.com Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.
