Original Stars of THE LAST SMOKER IN AMERICA to Reunite at Feinstein's/54 Below
The Original Cast of the musical The Last Smoker in America will reunite on for a One-Night-Only Reunion Concert, Sunday, September 25th at 9:30 p.m. at Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street).
The reunion concert of The Last Smoker in America, with book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Bill Russell (Side Show; Pageant), music by Drama Desk nominee Peter Melnick(Adrift in Macao), and direction by Andy Sandberg (Straight; Application Pending), will reunite the creative team and all four members of the original Off-Broadway cast: Drama Desk nominee Farah Alvin (The Marvelous Wonderettes; It Shoulda Been You), Natalie Venetia Belcon (Avenue Q; Matilda), Drama Desk nominee John Bolton (A Christmas Story; Dames at Sea; Anastasia), and Jake Boyd (Wicked; Rock of Ages).
The Last Smoker in America delivers explosive satire and smoking wit, along with a thrilling rock score that leaves you craving for more. In a world where smoking has recently been outlawed and the penalties are growing stricter by the minute, Pam is having an impossible time trying to quit. Her husband Ernie dreams of being a rock star and relentlessly practices his guitar in the basement, while their videogame-addicted son Jimmy listens to so much rap music he thinks he's black. As if Pam isn't pushed to The Edge of reason already, her nosy, anti-smoking zealot neighbor Phyllis is on a mission to catch transgressors mid-puff. Will Pam kick the habit or fight for her right to light up?
Doors open at 8:45pm for the 9:30pm concert. Tickets are $30-40 with premium tickets available at $65. There will also be a $25 food and beverage minimum. For tickets to the Feinstein's 54 Below Reunion Concert on September 25th, visit www.54Below.com or call (646) 476-3551.
