News   Creators of Bedbugs!!! Debut New Musical Comedy Off-Broadway Tonight
Paul Leschen and Fred Sauter (Bedbugs!!!) debut their newest musical, The Astronaut Love Show, Off-Broadway Nov. 12; it is a comedy that explores themes of love, obsession and loneliness and features a 70's-inspired score.

Performances are set to run through Nov. 22 at the Kraine Theatre, located at 85 East 4th St. in New York.

Helmed by John De Los Santos with music direction by Andy Peterson, The Astronaut Love Show features music by Leschen and a book and lyrics by Sauter.

The show is billed as "a fast paced, darkly comedic original musical that tells three infamous 'love stories' ripped from the headlines: a diaper-donning astronaut, a humble gay German cannibal and a Mormon-kidnapping/dog-cloning beauty queen!"

The production stars Amber Martin, Mark Rinzel, Samantha Stoltzfus, Nick DeMatteo, Injoy Fountain and Ross McCorkell. It features projection and production design by Dean A. Denmon, costume design by Ashley Soliman, sound design by Eben Mannes and lighting design and stage management by Blake Kile. Bob Kale is the casting director.

Bedbugs!!! opened to enthusiastic reviews in September 2014 and enjoyed an extended run at the ArcLight Theatre Off-Broadway.  Watch a video of Tony winner Lena Hall performing "Constellation Man" from The Astronaut Love Show below:
