Julie D'Moure, Justin Anthony Long and More Join Tim Realbuto in ALONE (WITH PLENTY OF HELP) at 54 Below Tonight
Tim Realbuto's 54 Below show will feature JULIE D'MOURE (Hair), JUSTIN ANTHONY LONG ("City of Dreams"), ANNA LOUISE MORSE (Spring Awakening), and NICHOLAS YENSON (Ghostlight), along with special guest stars, including Tony Award winner BETH LEAVEL (The Drowsy Chaperone), JENNA LEIGH GREEN (Wicked); DANIELLE FERLAND (Into the Woods), DEREK KLENA (Dogfight), JASON GOTAY (Bring It On), ALLI MAUZEY (Cry-Baby), NATASCIA DIAZ (tick tick Boom), Drama Desk nominee CHRISTINA BIANCO (Forbidden Broadway), LAURISSA ROMAIN (South Pacific), and KIMBERLY FAYE GREENBERG (One Night With Fanny Brice).
According to press notes, the show, entitled "Tim Realbuto: Alone (With Plenty of Help)", is being billed as a (not-so-solo) solo show about the life of former child actor and current adult writer Tim Realbuto. Each guest will play a character from Tim's life, a voice in his head, or (when things get too tough) they will play Tim himself. The four new ensemble members are filling in the gaps making various cameos, with D'Moure singing backup vocals.
Expect a deeply personal, poignant, yet hilarious evening filled with plenty of well-known tunes, originals, celebrity prank calls, contests with gift giveaways, diva impressions, and more. Musical direction is provided by JULIANNE B. MERRILL.
