Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's THE BAD YEARS Begins Immersive Workshop in Brooklyn Tonight
Broadway storytelling meets immersive spectacle in the workshop of the innovative house party musical THE BAD YEARS by Kerrigan & Lowdermilk. THE BAD YEARS returns to Brooklyn after a sold-out 2015 run at Loft 172. The new workshop, directed by Stephen Brackett (Buyer and Cellar) and choreographed by Jennifer Jancuska (BC Beat), follows sixteen twenty-somethings as they flirt, fight, and flip cup their way into adulthood.
The workshop will run tonight, September 1, through September 20, 2016, at 1218 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
Lines are blurred as the audience enters a decaying suburban house, crashing the party. EDM earworms fold seamlessly into acoustic anthems, spilling from room to room, and pulling the guests into a world of bacchanalian revelry.
The company includes Jarred Jordan Bedgood, Johnny Lee Brantley III, Daisy Carnelia, Sidney Fisher, Melissa Rose Hirsch, Elexis Morton, Isabel Plana, Nick Sacks, Andy Schneeflock, Mikki Sodergren, Zachary Francis Stewart, Andreas Wyder, Luke Wygodny, and Lauren Yalango-Grant.
Choreography is by Jennifer Jancuska, set design by Sara C. Walsh, lighting design by Jamie Roderick, sound design by Ido Levran, props design by Brianna Colombo, stage management by Will Chaloner, orchestrations by John Clancy, and a music team led by Scott Wasserman, Dana Haynes, Peter Hodgson, Dan Garmon & Jeremy Robin Lyons, with casting by Michael Cassara Casting.
A limited number of tickets will be made available to the general public via www.thebadyears.com. All guests must be 16+ unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Performance Dates: September 1, 3 @ 7:00PM; September 2 @ 7:00PM & 11:00PM; September 13, 14, 15, 17 @ 7:00PM; and September 16 @ 7:00PM & 11:00PM. 1218 Flushing Ave. is in Bushwick, around the corner from the Jefferson St. stop on the L Train.
