NOTHING BAD: A Werewolf Rock Musical Premieres at Hollywood Fringe

With four performances left, Nothing Bad is already claiming its territory as the best monster musical of this year's Fringe Festival. Now's your chance to join in the fang-smiling, claw-tapping horror story that Erik Blair and Daniel Sugimoto have created for Hollywood audiences.

"Nothing Bad is not like most monster musicals you see," Blair points out. "This is an adult rock musical. No parody or anything corny. We're creating a real tale of rage and the choices people make with power...and we think audiences are going to be blown away."

Nothing Bad: A Werewolf Rock Musical tells the story of Perfection, California, where everything is exactly that-perfect. But when good girl Lily White realizes she wants something more than everything, the rebel motorcycle gang looks like a great solution. There's only one problem: they're werewolves. Once she's bitten, she will learn about Perfection's dark underbelly as she transforms into The Beast.

"The inspiration for this show comes from my love of classic Universal-style monster movies combined with an understanding that werewolf mythology has always been at its heart a warning about someone with uncontrolled rage issues," Blair said. "That someone is classically defined as a Wolf man. What happens when you bring that classic monster to the modern century and make the victim a woman? How does it alter the tale?"

Nothing Bad marks the first live project for the newly formed They Played Productions, which was launched by entertainment veterans Blair and Thea Rivera. Blair has directed and performed in over 100 productions all over the country and has worked on the other side of the industry with Sony, Disney and Warner Brothers on various projects. Rivera has focused on a career in technology but has worked 20 plus years in theatre, in all capacities. The two formed They Played Productions to create content for all forms of visual entertainment. They are behind the YouTube Channel HePlayedShePlayed and have several other online and live theatrical projects on the horizon.
