Photo Coverage: [title of show] Curtain Call & After Party

​

[title of show] had their official Broadway opening on July 17th, 2008. [title of show] is written by Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell. Michael Berresse directs.  The cast stars Hunter Bell, Susan Blackwell,Heidi Blickenstaff and Jeff Bowen. Larry Pressgrove is musical director.

[title of show] takes a thoroughly unique and comical look at the pleasures and perils of the artistic process as two struggling writers and two struggling actresses take on the seemingly impossible task of creating a new musical about creating a new musical. Now with Broadway as their destination, the quartet's saga continues anew as they face mounting pressures and deadlines, and are nearly thrown off-track by disagreements, day jobs and insecurities in this funny and unforgettable look at the birth of a musical as it finally comes to life on the Great White Way.

The indomitable spirit depicted by both the play and its players has demonstrated broad appeal to theater goers of all ages and stripes since [title of show] debuted in 2004 at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, followed by its Off-Broadway debut in 2006 at the Vineyard Theatre. Jeff Bowen,Hunter Bell, and Michael Berresse each won a 2006 Obie Award for their work on [title of show].

Those who have already seen [title of show] and the thousands of others who have enjoyed its wildly popular internet series "The [title of show] Show" will be delighted by its arrival on Broadway. (To view episodes on "The [title of show] Show," log on to www.titleofshow.com/toscasts.htm) Thus far in nine riotous episodes -- and a Christmas special --  that echo the unbridled originality and humor of the musical itself, "The [title of show] Show" has chronicled the anticipation and angst the creators/cast have experienced while plotting the show's path to Broadway. About "The [title of show] Show," New York Magazine wrote last year, "The funniest show of the season is now playing on the internet."

[title of show] will perform Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00pm; Saturdays at 3:00pm &8:00pm; and Sundays at 3:00pm &7:00pm (Wednesdays are dark) at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) on Broadway.
