The Great American Trailer Park Musical had its off-Broadway opening at Dodger Stages on September 27th. Produced by Jean Doumanian and Jeffrey Richards, the musical stars Shuler Hensley (Tony Award for Oklahoma, "Van Helsing"), Orfeh (Saturday Night Fever, Love, Janis), Linda Hart (Hairspray, Anything Goes), Kaitlin Hopkins (Bat Boy, Noises Off, Bare), Leslie Kritzer (Hairspray, Bat Boy), Wayne Wilcox (A Man of No Importance, The Light in the Piazza) and Marya Grandy, who was an original cast member at NYMF.

The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was a hit at last summer's New York Musical Theatre Festival, will be helmed by Betsy Kelso, who wrote the show's book to David Nehls' country-and-blues music and lyrics. In the musical, "an agoraphobic housewife must tear herself away from Dr. Phil long enough to leave her trailer and save her marriage. Why the sudden fuss after being safely tucked away for nearly 20 years? Armadillo Acres' newest tenant--a hot, young stripper with an questionable agenda. With guidance from a trailer-trash style Greek Chorus (three local women with phobias, neurosis and hang-ups of their own), the story unfolds."
