Directed and choreographed by Deborah Wolfson, The Bobbed-Haired Bandit runs through Aug. 28.

The cast includes Katlyn Carlson (Dirty Dancing national tour), Chase Burnett, Jen Eden, Tracie Franklin, Stephanie Holser, Ariana Shore, Jennifer Wren and Melissa Zimmerman.

Set in 1920s Brooklyn, the musical, according to press notes, "follows the story of Celia and Ed Cooney, who just wanted a few bucks to raise their new baby in a nice home. Their solution? Rob a grocery store. And another. And another. They never meant to go on a crime spree, but once they’re in, it’s hard to get out. An all-female ensemble plays everyone else, from their victims to the cops to the press."

The creative team also includes music director Rodrigo Vega, sound designer Gennaro Marletta III, lighting designer Ryan Metzler, set designer Cory Rodriguez, costume designer David Withrow, stage manager Debra Stunich and assistant stage manager Derek T. Butts.

The Bleecker Theater is located at 45 Bleecker Street (at Lafayette Street). For more information, visit For tickets, call (866) 468-7619 or visit
