'Paper Dolls' is Part of Fringe Fest. Beginning 8/13
Lively Productions and Métropole Ink are proud to present the world premiere of PAPER DOLLS as part of the 11th annual New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC. In his New York debut, New York Daily News gossip columnist and playwright Patrick Huguenin goes behind the scenes of celebrity scandal. Performances begin Wednesday August 13th at the Players Theatre (115 MacDougal Street).
Gaye Taylor Upchurch directs a cast that features Allison Goldberg, Jen Jamula, Billy Magnussen, and Ashley Morris (Die Mommie Die!). Magnussen made his Broadway debut in The Ritz and currently stars as Casey Hughes in the daytime drama "As the World Turns." David Newell will serve as costume and scenic designer, with lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno and Julia Meinwald composing original music.
NYC GOSSIP COLUMNIST CAUGHT IN SEX SCANDAL! By age 29, Claire Cunningham wields one of New York City's most poisonous pens. She has a devilishly handsome boyfriend, a permanent invite to the hottest parties, and the best of Hollywood sources -- her secretly gay brother, Austin, a high-grossing action film star. Then a nasty bit of news changes everything. And when Claire's reunion with her ex-assistant, Tammy, turns out to be less than nostalgic, Claire and Austin become gossip targets. Will Claire's steamy sex life hit the front page? Will Austin be forced out of the closet? Cue the entrance of a mysterious stranger, Isabel, who knows just a little bit too much about everyone, and this summer the heat will be in the headlines.
