Found (Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theater). The world-premiere production of Found, the original musical inspired by found letters and notes, features a book by Tony Award nominee Hunter Bell and Lee Overtree and music and original lyrics by Eli Bolin. The ensemble cast of ten includes Christina Anthony, Nick Blaemire, Andrew Call, Daniel Everidge, Orville Mendoza, Betsy Morgan, Molly Pope, Danny Pudi, Sandy Rustin and Barrett Wilbert Weed. "Found is an original musical based on scores of surprising and eccentric discarded notes and letters that have been 'found' in the real world by every-day people," press notes state. "Inspired by actual events, the show follows Davy (Blaemire) who, along with his two best friends, is lost and broke. When he finds a strangely revealing note on his windshield meant for someone else, it sparks an outlandish idea that finds him and his compatriots on a wild, comedic journey. This raucous and insightful new musical tells a story of ambition, betrayal and loyalty while celebrating the weirdness in all of us." Visit AtlanticTheater.org.
Stalking the Bogeyman (Off-Broadway at New World Stages). Stalking the Bogeyman, which is based on the true-life story of journalist David Holthouse, features Roderick Hill as David Holthouse and Erik Heger as the Bogeyman, with Murphy Guyer as Robert, Tony Award nominee Roxanne Hart as Carol/Dr. Leavitt, Tony Award nominee John Herrera as Russ and Kate Levy as Nancy. Here's how it's billed: "In the spring of 2003, David Holthouse was a successful, award-winning journalist. But no one knew that David had two dark secrets - first, that 25 years ago he was the victim of a violent rape, and second, that he was quietly planning the ultimate revenge on the man responsible. A story of transformation, healing and forgiveness of the highest order, Stalking the Bogeyman follows one man's quest for revenge as he comes to grips with the killer inside him."
