I SPY A SPY Will Close Off-Broadway August 10
Producer Eric Krebs announced today that I Spy A Spy: A Declassified Musical, the new musical-comedy by SoHee Youn and Jamie Jackson will end its engagement at The Theatre at St. Clement's (423 West 46th Street-between 9th and 10th Avenues) following the evening performance on Saturday, August 10th, 2019. I Spy A Spy began performances July 6th, 2019 with the official opening on July 18th. It will have played 10 preview and 26 regular performances.
"I Spy a Spy is an important and heartfelt story, beautifully told by a highly talented company that should be seen," said producer Eric Krebs. " With a wonderful 12 member cast drawn from the gorgeous mosaic of the many faces of New York City, and in spite of regular cheers and standing ovations, we, unfortunately, are closing early." He went on to say, "Because of the importance of our story, I am determined to get as many people as possible to see this show before we close, regardless of what they pay." He concluded by offering, "Accordingly, every unsold seat will be given free at curtain to audience members who appear at Theater at St Clement's prior to each performance."
In a "melting pot" neighborhood in Hell's Kitchen, José Rodriguez, an undocumented Mexican delivery guy, has an American Dream-to become "a someone." Alina Orlova, a beautiful but inept Russian spy, also has an American Dream-to bring down America-and to save the family's "Fluff N' Fold!" Speeding through one preposterous and hilarious plot twist after another, José and Alina embark on a wild adventure to fulfilling their destinies. I Spy A Spy is a musical roller coaster ride on which our duo encounters Mexican thugs, Russian spies, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner and the Department of Homeland Security!
