'Homemade Fusion' by Kooman & Dimond at Zipper Feb.18
The Zipper Factory Theater (336 West 37th Street) proudly announces the addition of the following to its February schedule:
Music by Michael Kooman / Lyrics by Christopher Dimond
Directed by Ed Slyvanus Iskander
Monday, February 18 at 9:30PM
The New York Premiere of Homemade Fusion, a series of musical snapshots from the imaginations of Michael Kooman (music) and Christopher Dimond (lyrics). Each snapshot attempts to make sense of an increasingly senseless world by examining the paradox of modern times. At once dangerously cynical and desperately romantic, it is a tale of love, loss, and candy bars.
Directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, the cast features Natalie Venetia-Belcon (Avenue Q, The Glorious Ones), Kirsten Bracken (Hairspray), Anderson Davis (Les Miserables), Andrew Kober (Hair), Marissa Lesch (Dani Girl), Kara Lindsay (Lone Star Love), Patina Miller (Hair, Sister Act The Musical), Matthew Scott (Jersey Boys, A Catered Affair) and Marty Thomas (Xanadu). Homemade Fusion made its world premiere at Carnegie Mellon University in the spring of 2006 and transferred to the Pittsburgh CLO Cabaret Theatre later that year.
