TICK TOCK BOOM CLAP, Starring Melissa Fahn and Sam Zeller, Premieres at St. Luke's Theatre, 10/22
In association with John Sefakis and Dancers Over 40, the New York film premiere of "Tick Tock Boom Clap" will be held at St. Luke's Theatre tonight, October 22 at 7:00pm. This feature-length romantic dramedy stars Melissa Fahn (Wicked/Vox Lumiere) and Sam Zeller (Cahty Rigby's Peter Pan).
Inspired by real stories of theatre and life, this film follows Sara (Fahn), who is single, pushing 40, and in denial after the passing of her parents. With the help of her three close friends, she sets off on a seemingly frivolous adventure to find her first childhood crush, a boy tapper who has gone from their small hometown to Broadway. The journey leads her back to a production of "Peter Pan" and its colorful cast of characters, including Jules/Capt. Hook (Zeller) and Trina/Tiger Lily (Heather Phillips of Dedalus Lounge). Sara thinks this fun little show will, once again, be the perfect distraction from the real world, but the truth has a funny way of creeping in and finding her.
The cast includes Dyan McBride, Gene Bencomo, and Jack Beck as the three friends, with George Maguire, Hector Correa, Charles McGowan (A Chorus Line), Amy Griffin (NEWSical), and a cameo by Wesley Mann (Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival). Paul Rubin was the stunt coordinator for the flying sequences.
The World Premiere of "Tick Tock Boom Clap" was held at the Laemmle Music Hall 3 in Beverly Hills on August 20th, and the Northern California premiere was held on August 25th at the Downtown Theatre in Fairfield, CA.
