WELL-STRUNG to Set Up for 3 Week Run at Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater, 10/27-11/10
The Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater has announced the all-male string quartet, WELL-STRUNG, will set up for a three week run, beginning on October 27 and closing on November 10.
WELL-STRUNG features classical musicians who sing, putting their own spin on the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Pink, Lady Gaga, Adele, and more. Directed by Donna Drake and starring Edmund Bagnell; first violin, Christopher Marchant: second violin, Daniel Shevlin; cello and Trevor Wadleigh; viola. Well-Strung had a sold-out debut show at Joe's Pub in NYC this past May and recently took Provincetown by storm where the group extended for a three-month summer run at The Art House.
Edmund Bagnell (First Violinist) played Tobias in the 1st National Tour of SWEENEY TODD, directed by John Doyle. He can also be seen in the upcoming fall 2012 production of Menotti’s “The Medium” playing the role of Toby opposite Varla Jean Merman. Recent regional theater credits include Charlie Brown in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Summer Theater of New Canaan), Charlie in The Big Holiday Broadcast of 1959 written by Joanna Gleason (Fairfield Theater Company), and Oramel Howland in The Great Unknown written by Jim Wann (Pump Boys and Dinettes) and Bill Hauptman (Big River) as a part of NYMF. Chris Marchant (Second Violinist) grew up singing and playing violin, but was not involved with theater until the end of his studies at Malone University in Canton, OH. Since then, he has been involved in numerous productions utilizing his multi-talents as a vocalist, actor, and musician. Career highlights include Tobias (Sweeney Todd, National Tour), violinist (Spring Awakening National Tour), Dennis (Sanders Family Christmas), and Naked Boys Singing.
