It is 1993, there is a new president in the White House, Jurassic Park is about to tear up the box office, and Wally Waterman is on the verge of inventing the teleporter. But weird science gets even weirder when Wally accidentally clones himself. Is NYC big enough for two giant, identical egos? It will take nothing short of a movie star, international espionage, and a few pigeons to find out. Featuring a gleefully breezy score, CLONED! is door-slamming, yodel-happy, bird-squawking fun!

The Musical) as Tramell the Pigeon, Melanie Beck* (SkippyJon Jones - TheatreWorks USA) as Izzy, John Alban Coughlan* (Ntl Tour: Beauty and the Beast; Palm Beach - La Jolla Playhouse; The Drowsy Chaperone - Kevin Kline Award Winner) as Dr. Marshall, Alex Goley* (NYMF: Standby The Musical; Big River - TheatreWorks SV) as Wally, Crystal Kellogg* (Because of Winn Dixie - Arkansas Repertory Theatre, The Sound of Music - Surflight Theatre) as Sharon Stone, Matthew Knowland* (Tony and Tina?s Wedding) as Fizz, Eric Mann* (Ntl Tour: A Chorus Line; Hello Dolly! - Cape Playhouse) as Clone Wally, Tony Romero* (Babes in Toyland - Lincoln Center, Mame - Paper Mill Playhouse, My Fair Lady - Trinity Rep) as Mr Choi & Babs Winn* (Cougar the Musical) as Evelyn.
