The Last Smoker in America, with book and lyrics by Bill Russell and music by Peter Melnick, opened Off-Broadway at The Westside Theatre on August 2, 2012. The production was directed by Andy Sandberg, with choreography by AC Ciulla and music supervision and arrangements by Fred Lassen. The four-member cast featured Farah Alvin, Natalie Venetia Belcon, John Bolton, and Jake Boyd.
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?
