Photo Coverage: VILLAIN: DEBLANKS Returns to 54 Below
Just last week was the second of three performances of "Villain: DeBlanks" benefitting BC/EFA. Written by Billy Mitchell, "Villain: DeBlanks" is a late-night fundraiser where the cast needs the audience as much as the audience loves the cast. The company featured Jennifer Cody, Adam Feldman, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Hugh Hysell, Hedda Lettuce, and Christine Pedi, with Heather Shisler.
The audience provides nouns, verbs, adjectives, desserts and body parts, and the actors provide the laughs -- uncensored and unrehearsed -- as the cast enacts the story using the words put in their mouths. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," performed by some of the funniest people in New York.
Like a ride to summer camp in the back of a station wagon, each hilarious performance will be ridiculously one-of-a-kind, and, best of all, the proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Presented in association with La Vie Productions/R. Erin Craig. Villain: DeBlanks plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) August 7 at 11:30 pm. There is a $10-$30 cover charge and $20 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4 pm are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
