Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Daniel Jenkins and Melissa van der Schyff's BORROWED CASH: BUSTED

Tony Award Nominee Daniel Jenkins (Oslo, Kid Victory, Big River, Mary Poppins) and Drama Desk Nominee Melissa van Der Schyff (Big River, Bonnie & Clyde) are teaming up to perform at Le Poisson Rouge (LPR) in a creatively refreshing concert, "BORROWED CASH: BUSTED! The Reunion Tour" on Saturday, January 21 and Sunday, January 22 at 8:00 PM. The concert - performed completely in alter ego, blending comedy and documentary film within a live rock and blues concert setting - is directed by Gina Rattan (Matilda, Cinderella) with Jesse Weiner serving as music director and arranger.

Jesse Weiner, also performing in character, will lead a full band with himself and Mr. Jenkins employing their skills as multi-instrumentalists using banjo, violin, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, harmonica and keyboards. The set also features Sam Sherwood on bass and Drew Anderson on drums and a top secret, yet deliciously familiar score. This genre-bending event is co-created by Daniel Jenkins, Melissa van Der Schyff, Jesse Weiner and Gina Rattan.

"BORROWED CASH: BUSTED! The Reunion Tour" will be performed at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012), on Saturday, January 21 and Sunday, January 22 at 8:00 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM. Running time is approximately 70 minutes. For tickets and more a detailed description of the characters & show visit: http://lpr.com/?s=BORROWED+CASH #LiveAtLPR - LPR.com
