Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

Producers Benjamin Simpson, Joseph Longthorne and Jana Shea are pleased to announce complete casting for the extended run of the smash hit, critically-acclaimed WP Theater (Lisa McNulty, Producing Artistic Director; Michael Sag, Managing Director) and Second Stage Theater (Carole Rothman, President & Artistic Director; Casey Reitz, Executive Director) production of Alexis Scheer's Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, directed by Whitney White. Tickets are on sale now at

In addition to the previously announced original cast members Carmen Berkeley, Alyssa May Gold, Rebecca Jimenez, and Malika Samuel, Daniel Estrada will continue with the production through November 10. Matthew Saldivar, recently seen on Broadway in Bernhardt/Hamlet, Junk, Saint Joan and Honeymoon in Vegas, joins the cast on November 12. Also joining the cast as understudies are Cristina Angelica (zounds!), Alisha Espinosa (Mahogany Brown and the Case of the Disappearing Kid) and Luis Alberto Garcia (El Quijote).

In this fierce and feverish world premiere comedy from WP Theater and Second Stage, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A rollercoaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood - the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun.
