A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet, the new musical from Alex Wyse and Ben Fankhauser, officially opened Off-Broadway September 27 following previews that began September 17 at the DR2 Theatre.
The musical follows two writers, appropriately played by Wyse and Fankhauser, plucked from obscurity by a world-famous pop star named Regina Comet. She wants them to create an anthem for her supernova pipes—and her new perfume. Bryonha Marie Parham (Prince of Broadway) plays Regina.
