Photo Flash: A MUSICAL ABOUT STAR WARS Celebrates Opening Night
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...last Saturday, "May The Fourth" at Theatre Row to be exact... A Musical About Star Wars - or Why Star Wars is the Greatest Thing in the Galaxy, Much Much Better than Star Trek opened to thunderous applause, standing ovations, and unparalleled accolades. The show is a ridiculous musical comedy celebrating all things Star Wars. Created by Tom D'Angora and written by Tom D'Angora, Taylor Crousore, and Scott Richard Foster, the musical features an original score and lyrics by Billy Recce.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...a Staten Island Blockbuster Video to be exact...Two Star Wars fanatics, Scott and Taylor, write the most epic Star Wars musical ever. On their endless quest to perform it at Comic Con - a restraining order filed by Warwick Davis, that we won't mention, stands in their way - they have opted to perform it on the glamorous off-broadway stages instead! However, dark forces are looming over their production, and her name is Emily. Basically, it's a show-within-a-show, it's a little meta, it's hella rad, and it's a whole lotta Star Wars!
Taylor Crousore, Scott Richard Foster, and Emily McNamara star as Taylor, Scott, and Emily, with Dylan Hartwell and Amy Hillner Larsen serving as understudies. The production is directed by Tom and Michael D'Angora, with choreography by Alex Ringler, costumes by Brendan McCann and William Bailey, lighting design by Linday Green, music direction by Ed Goldscheider, and stage managed by Brent Jones.
