White Noise Ends Run Sept. 30; Off-Broadway Transfer?
Ending its successful limited run, the controversial and critically acclaimed new musical White Noise will play its final performances this weekend at TBG Theater as part of the New York Musical Theater Festival.
The creators of White Noise are currently in negotiations with commercial producers for an Off-Broadway transfer, anticipated for early 2007.
Presented by the New York Musical Theater Festival and Matt Nasser, White Noise is billed as "A Cautionary Musical," and is inspired by the real-life teenage white supremacist pop/folk band Prussian Blue.
White Noise was conceived by director Ryan J. Davis and features music, lyrics and book by Joe Drymala, with additional songs by Ben Cohn and Sean McDaniel, Rick Crom, Glen Kelly, Laurence O'Keefe, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and Eric Svejcar.
The cast of White Noise includes Libby Winters, Molly Laurel, Danny Calvert, Micah Shepard, Rick Crom and Phillip Taratula. White Noise features choreography by Todd L. Underwood, musical direction and arrangements by Ben Cohn, set design by Elisha Schaefer, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, sound design by Danny Von Erdberg, and costume design by Matthew Ashman. Nina Shreiber, Lee Ann Gullie and director Ryan J. Davis are associate producers on the show.
White Noise is described by the authors as follows:
"An adorable pair of sisters, Blanche and Eva, lead the teen band White Noise, mixing irresistible harmonies with white power rhetoric and taking the nation by storm. Their message of racial purity resonates with young people across America and the rise of White Noise coincides with a rise in the white supremacist movement which threatens to engulf the country, as Blanche and Eva prove themselves to be masters of the most terrifying and unstoppable form of Fascism in today's culture: Top Forty pop."
