BWW TV: Curl That Lip and Howl! Highlights from ATTACK OF THE ELVIS IMPERSONATORS Off-Broadway
The new Off-Broadway musical Attack of the Elvis Impersonators, the zany new musical that will leave you howling for more, features book, music and lyrics by Lory Lazarus, continues at The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th & 10th Avenues). BroadwayWorld has highlights from the show below!
From Lory Lazarus, the writer of "Courage, the Cowardly Dog," Attack of the Elvis Impersonators is a rollicking and irreverent new musical comedy featuring an original score, swooning fangirls, an antichrist, world peace, a social media star, the spirit of Elvis ... and of course, a hero!
When Drac Frenzie, a burnt-out world famous heavy metal icon decides to save himself from self-destruction by impersonating Elvis, a miracle occurs -- which leads him to not only saving himself, but also the world.
This show satirizes everything from topics of self-identity, society, organized religion and the state of humanity all in an insanely riotous way! Attack of theElvis Impersonators will make you howl as it converts you to Hound Dog: the new religion of peace.
