Off-Broadway's PAGEANT Welcomes Miss America at Final Performance Tonight

PAGEANT will celebrate its final performance tonight, October 26, 2014 at 7:30pm, with special guests, including Miss America 2015 winner Kira Kazantsev (Miss New York) and other Miss America 2015 finalists. All audience members in attendance on Sunday are invited to join the company immediately after the show at Boxers (742 9th Ave) for a free drink with ticket stub and $3 drink specials all night.

After a sold-out benefit run for BC/EFA this February, PAGEANT has returned in a limited Off-Broadway engagement at The Davenport Theatre (354 West 45th Street). The cast of tiara-crazed beauties includes Nick Cearley ("The Skivvies"), Nic Cory (Signs of Life), Alex Ringler (West Side Story), Marty Thomas (Wicked, Xanadu), Seth Tucker (Our Kiki), and Curtis Wiley (Motown), with John Bolton (A Christmas Story, "Gossip Girl") as the host. Previews began Sunday, June 29, 2014, and the show officially opened on Monday, July 14, 2014 at the Davenport Theatre.

PAGEANT recently recorded the first ever cast album of the critically-acclaimed musical, which will be released by Jay Records.

Like every beauty pageant you've seen before, PAGEANT features contestants desperately vying for a glittering tiara. With swimsuit, talent, and evening gown competitions - the show includes both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat! Unlike some beauty pageants you've seen before, the female contestants are all played by men. And the audience gets to select the winner each night. Filled with excitement and suspense, but first and foremost, beauty. Let the beauty begin!

PAGEANT has book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Bill Russell (Side Show, The Last Smoker in America) and Frank Kelly with music by Albert Evans and was conceived by Robert Longbottom. Matt Lenz directs, with choreography by Shea Sullivan, music supervision by Mark Hartman, music direction by Micah Young, scenic design by Paul Tate DePoo III, costumes by Stephen Yearick, lighting by Paul Miller & Kirk Fitzgerald, sound by David Sanderson, and casting by Benton Whitley / Duncan Stewart and Company. PAGEANT is produced by SAS Productions, Kitty Potapow, Drew Desky, and Michelle R. Rogers. ABS Productions serves as Executive Producer.

PAGEANT debuted Off-Broadway in 1991 at the Blue Angel in New York where it ran for more than a year before playing successful engagements on the West End and around the world. Pageant was last seen this February in a sold-out five-show special engagement that benefitted Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS at the Red Lacquer Club, which was the first time it had returned to the New York stage in more than twenty years.
