Photo Flash: Virginia Stage's SCKBSTD
SCKBSTD - A New Musical by Bruce Hornsby will play the final performance of its limited World Premiere engagement at Virginia Stage Company this Sunday, February 6. The production features music and lyrics by Williamsburg native and Grammy Winner Bruce Hornsby, lyrics by Chip deMatteo and book by Clay McLeod Chapman. The show is based on an original story by Bruce Hornsby.
SCKBSTD began performances on Tuesday, January 18 and officially opened on Friday, January 21. SCKBSTD is produced by VSC by special arrangement with Michael Rafael and David Riemer of Spiral Staircase LLC, New York. BB&T is the sponsoring presenter of SCKBSTD.
Something sick is happening in Virginia. A normally placid neighborhood is in an uproar. There are reports of a creepy guy driving aimlessly through the suburban streets. Police are on the lookout. Gossip is in the air. Families are in conflict. Husbands vs. wives. Children vs. parents. Neighbor vs. neighbor. And songs by Bruce Hornsby.
SCKBSTD (pronounced like "sick bastard") is the show winding up its world premiere run by Virginia Stage Company in Norfolk, VA, on Feb. 6. With music and lyrics by Hornsby - the Virginian who topped the charts with "The Way It Is" in 1986, and had further pop winners like "Mandolin Rain" and "Every Little Kiss" - SCKBSTD is directed by John Rando and features several Broadway luminaries including Jill Paice, Kevin Mambo and the two gentleman I spoke to for this edition of Leading Men, Robert Cuccioli and Marcus Lovett.
