TRIASSIC PARQ Records Cast Album 8/11
The cast of TRIASSIC PARQ The Musical, 2010's Best Musical winner at FringeNYC, will head into Sear Sound Studios on August 11th to create the cast recording, which will be available in September on iTunes, Amazon.com, Xbox LIVE, and TriassicParq.com. The Off-Broadway premiere of TRIASSIC PARQ is set to end its strictly limited engagement as scheduled this Sunday, August 5th. Written by Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo, TRIASSIC PARQ is directed by Mr. Pailet, with choreography by Kyle Mullins and musical direction by Zak Sandler. The cast of TRIASSIC PARQ features Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Hairspray, Lysistrata Jones), Brandon Espinoza (Les Miserables, Captains Courageous), Wade McCollum (Submissions Only), Claire Neumann (Boston Marriage), Lee Seymour (title role in Hamlet, Shakespeare's Globe), Shelley Thomas (Zanna, Don't!), and Alex Wyse (HBO's Bored to Death).
A raucous new musical that combines singing, sex, and Velociraptors in ways hitherto unimagined, TRIASSIC PARQ follows a group of cloned dinosaurs as they unearth the very foundations of their existence. Morality, faith, science, gender identity, and interspecies fornication are all explored, and sung about, as Morgan Freeman narrates this epic tale of love, loss and resurrected reptiles.
