JEM Productions Presents the World Premiere of FORT DICKS
JEM Productions presents the world premiere of Jeffrey E. Milstein's uproarious send-up of the prison system: Fort Dicks, a new musical.
Based on true stories, Jeffrey Milstein, a prolific author both in NYC and regionally, "lampooning to the tooning of Brooks, Reiner, and Simon" in telling the story of a low-level prison in the famed military installation ... and then sets the whole things to music! The dark social commentary is played like a Marx Brothers movie complete with sight-gags and prat falls. And just like any old movie musical - Marx Brothers notwithstanding - it has a cast of thousands.
FORT DICKS will be presented at American Theatre of Actors, 314 W 54th St, New York City, on Friday and Saturday November 9 & 10; 16 & 17 @ 8:00 p.m.; Sunday matinées: November 11 & 18 @ 2:00 p.m. Tickets: Brownpapertickets.com
Jail time never was this much fun!
The cast features Sean Farrelly & Joe Sherbin; with Marek Ardito-Proulx, Pauline Breeze, Dana Cavagnaro, Carlos Cervantes, Mario Claudio, Sunflower Duran, Annabel Espinal, Donna Glaesener, Dominick Gonzalez, Andrew Gordon, Jason Lee, Federica Morra, Richard Sacher, Lindsy Thomas, and Laura Young
"I draw inspiration and patterns in my work from the comedic geniuses of Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, and Carl Reiner. It's their kind of 'laugh till you think' philosophy that I put into my work," says Milstein, an ambitious, actor/producer/director/playwright.
