The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn to Bring MISSIONARY IN MANHATAN: A MORMON MUSICAL to UCB, 3/12 & 3/26
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn, will present MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A MORMON MUSICAL, a musical comedy about the fundamentals of big hair, blind faith, and just how plural a marriage can get. Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 8pm and Wednesday March 26th at 8pm at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (307 W. 26th Street, between 8th and 9th Ave).
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn's MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN is the story of three polygamist pop stars on the hunt for their brother husband in New York City. Charles Gregory Howard has gone missing. He was last seen at The Cubby Hole with his vocal coach, Gerard. Ukuleles in tow, Gretchen, Fanny, and Bunny Catherine will turn pop songs into "God Songs," lament, and stop at nothing to track down the father of their seven children. Missionary in Manhattan: A Mormon Musical hysterically lampoons the institution of marriage as the sister wives learn to accept their newfound independence and face the hard truth that "Grindr is not for bill pay, it's for boyfriends." The show runs at a super swift 30 minutes and will be performed on the main stage at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Chelsea.
The cast of MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A Mormon Musical includes Caitlin Davis, Kaleigh Malloy, and Elizabeth May. Scenic Design is by Flora Vassar. Direction by Chris Raddatz.
Performances of MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A Mormon Musical are on 3/12 @8pm and 3/26 @ 8:00pm. Tickets are $5 and available online at www.UCBTheatre.com.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn provides a theatrical home for southerners and an invitation to those untouched by southern charm to "party till the cows come home." The founding members of UOGB challenge a generation criticized for its apathy, detachment, and reliance on technology by demanding audience engagement through outrageous comedy, musical celebrations, and honest storytelling.
