Falcon Theatre Presents Troubadour Theater Company's LITTLE DRUMMER BOWIE
Ovation Award-winners and Troubadour Theater Company favorites Rick Batalla, Lisa Valenzuela and Beth Kennedy reunite with long-time 'Troubie' Joseph Leo Bwarie in Little Drummer Bowie after his Broadway run as Frankie Valli in the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. Artistic Director and founder, Matt Walker, will co-direct the musical parody with Bwarie.
Changing the rules to their own game, the 'Troubies' and some 'newbies' return to the Falcon Theatre this holiday season to pay tribute to the late, great David Bowie in a fully reimagined production of their infamous theatrical mash-up, Little Drummer Bowie.
The company, known for marrying classic source material with legendary music will spoof the 1960's television special, The Little Drummer Boy, and Bowie's iconic glam rock sound, offering a theatrical event sure to dazzle all and surprise even the most knowing 'Troubie' fan.
This laugh-out-loud musical parody finds our "Heroes" in a heartwarming tale of family, forgiveness and "Changes," resulting in the ultimate discovery for all seasons: "Modern Love" lives inside.
In addition to Batalla, Bwarie, Kennedy and Valenzuela, the cast will include: Riccardo Berdini, Katie DeShan, Katie Kitani, Phillip J. Lewis and Cloie Wyatt Taylor with choreography by Jordana Toback and musical direction & arrangements by Eric Heinly.
The design team includes Christopher Scott Murillo, scenic design; Sharon McGunigle, costume design; JM Montecalvo, lighting design; Daniel Tator, sound design; Bobbie Zlotnik, wig design; John Stapleton for MAC Cosmetics, makeup design and Sandi Logan, casting.
Troubadour Theater Company lovingly dedicates this production to friend, mentor, and longtime co-conspirator, Garry K. Marshall.
