You may recognize Annie Golden from the hit TV show "Orange is the New Black" or from the Original Broadway Cast of HAIR. Today, we are thrilled to share a clip of the song written for Annie by Joe Iconis, Lance Rubin, and Jason SweetTooth Williams!
"What if musical theater legend Annie Golden starred in a show as a bad-ass action hero?" That was the idea that led to this musical, which uses the convention-both theatrical and musical-of 70's exploitation films to tell the story of a widowed down-on-her-luck theatre actress who becomes a bounty hunter and goes on a journey of self-discovery and serious ass-kicking. The show is about aging, regret, second chances, love amongst adults, crimes against humanity, musical theater legacies, Ninja assassins, and what it really means to be a Woman Of A Certain Age."
Joe Iconis, Lance Rubin, & Jason "SweetTooth" Williams have been collaborators and partners in crime for many years. Joe (www.MrJoeIconis.com) is the Kleban-winning author of The Black Suits and Bloodsong of Love.
