RED EYE OF LOVE is a girl-meats-boy love story. Selma Chargesse is torn between her love of great wealth and her passion for idealism and the two men in her life who offer her one or the other-Wilmer, a naïve young dreamer and O.O. Martinas, the proprietor of the world's largest meat department store. Could she have both? Don't miss this rare musical ready for prime time that tugs at the heart and tickles the funny bone. Any way you slice it, this is red meat for musical theater lovers and that's no bum steer.
The cast also features Sam Bolen, Sarah Corey, Nikki Renee Daniels, Christine DiGiallonardo, John Morton, Greg Roderick, Leah Stuart, and Matthew Zimmerman. The album features a 12-piece band led by music director Greg Jarrett. Orchestrations are by Bruce Coughlin.
"RED EYE OF LOVE is written in the language of burlesque using puns and allegory, word play and stock phrases to make its points," says co-writerJohn Wulp. "It's not a conventional musical. It is an extended metaphor - a history of America. The story of the rise of O.O. Martinas' Meat Emporium roughly parallels the story of America, except that the play begins at the turn of the century - a time that could be encompassed within the lifetime experiences of Arnold Weinstein and myself."
