Photo Flash: First Look at THE ASTRONAUT LOVE SHOW Off-Broadway

LESCHEN & SAUTER MUSICALS, LLC presents Paul Leschen and Fred Sauter's (Bedbugs!!!) THE ASTRONAUT LOVE SHOW, with music direction by Andy Peterson, and directed by John de los Santos. THE ASTRONAUT LOVE SHOW is now playing at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th St. New York, NY 10003). Performances continue through Sunday, November 22. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

THE ASTRONAUT LOVE SHOW is a fast paced, darkly comedic original musical that tells three infamous "love stories" ripped from the headlines: a diaper­donning astronaut, a humble gay German cannibal and a Mormon kidnapping/dog­cloning beauty queen! Through an original 70s inspired score, this cosmically explosive musical explores themes of loneliness and obsession in a world where technology gives us a fast track to act upon our deepest desires.

The production stars Amber Martin (celebrated NYC performance artist and vocalist, one of the New Yorker's 2010 top performers) as Leslie Starvak, Mark Rinzel (Singer in 80's tribute band Jessie's Girl, and New York's Finest, a Police tribute band) as Arvin Meissner, Samantha Stoltzfus as June Bernice McNealy, Nick DeMatteo in multiple roles, Injoy Fountain in multiple roles, and Ross McCorkell as Astronaut Bobby Olofsson, the cannibalized Berndt Brockhaus and Mormon missionary Kip Swanson.

The production features projection and production design by Dean A. Denmon, costume design by Ashley Soliman, sound design by Justin Johnson, and lighting design and stage management by Blake Kile. Bob Kale (Bedbugs!!!) is the casting director.

Tickets are $20 and are now available online at www.astronautloveshow.com.
