Lori Alan Joins VILLAIN: DeBlanks Benefit for God's Love We Deliver
Award-winning voice actor Lori Alan (Pearl Crabs on "SpongeBob SquarePants," Diane Simmons on "Family Guy," Pixar's upcoming Toy Story 4) joins the cast of Villain: DeBlanks' debut performance at the new Birdland Theater. She replaces previously announced Tony-nominee Brenda Braxton, who has withdrawn due to a schedule conflict. The one-night-only performance on Wednesday, December 12 promises an evening of laughs and surprises, and all proceeds will benefit God's Love We Deliver.
Lori Alan (Shameless, A.P. Bio) joins the previously announced line-up, including hilarious "Legend of Off-Broadway" Julie Halston ("Sex and the City," Tootsie the Musical), three-time Tony-nominee Rebecca Luker (Music Man, Mary Poppins), Tony nominee Micah Stock (It's Only A Play, The Front Page), UCB funnyman Jeff Hiller ("30 Rock," Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson), and scene-stealer Jared Zirilli (Summer - The Donna Summer Musical, Lysistrata Jones).
A Time Out NY Critics' Pick written by Billy Mitchell, Villain: DeBlanks is the uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths. The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs-uncensored and unrehearsed-as they enact the story of Philip DeBlanks' untimely demise. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," and it's never the same show twice.
So grab a thesaurus and a few friends, and come laugh your (BODY PART)_____ off!
