Photo Flash: Joe Iconis's THINGS TO RUIN Takes Le Poisson Rouge!

Sh-K-Boom & Ghostlight Records have joined with Sara Jane Mercer to present Things to Ruin for a strictly-limited run at (Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street). The first two shows took place February 28  and March 7 (featured below) at 7:30pm, and March 20 and March 28 at 10:30pm. The cast includes Ben Arons, Nick Blaemire, Starr Busby, Katrina Rose Dideriksen, Ian Kagey, Carrie Manolakos, Eric William Morris, Mike Pettry, Lance Rubin, Jason "Sweet Tooth" Williams and Joe Iconis.

Things To Ruin is an incendiary collection of songs by Kleban and Larson Award Winner Joe Iconis (writer of the rock musical The Black Suits and Bloodsong of Love, which premiered at Ars Nova in spring 2010). It is a theatrical rock concert about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to. Performed by a cast of viciously talented young singers and a highly flammable four-piece band led by Joe himself, Things To Ruin rocks with an occasionally profane and always heartfelt explosion of music and high drama.

Tickets for the concerts are $20 and on sale now at lepoissonrouge.com or by calling (212) 505-FISH (3474). (Le) Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street in NYC. Doors open at 10pm for the 10:30pm shows.
