STAGE TUBE: Bdwy's Best Speak Out About 'THINGS TO RUIN'

Sara Katz and Sh-K-Boom Records are happy to announce a new venue for THINGS TO RUIN, the critically acclaimed, incendiary collection of songs by Joe Iconis, directed by John Simpkins. For the month of May, T2R will be presented at Second Stage Theatre (307 W 43rd) with performances beginning Monday, May 4, 2009. This limited-engagement run is scheduled through Monday, May 18th (detailed schedule below). Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling 212-246-4422 or online at www.2st.com. 

A Trailer for THINGS TO RUIN has been created and features Title Of Show, Mary Testa, Kerry Butler, Seth Rudetsky, Annie Golden, Bill Russell, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Amy Spanger, Lauren Molina, The Cast of "Hair," Jason "SweetTooth" Williams, Krysta Rodriguez, Jason Tam, and Craig Stevens & Janine! You can catch it right here on STAGE TUBE!

THINGS TO RUIN is about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to. Performed by a cast of viciously talented young singers and a highly flammable four-piece band led by Joe himself, THINGS TO RUIN rocks with an occasionally profane and always heartfelt explosion of music and high drama.

Joe Iconis is a recipient of the 2006 Jonathan Larson Award, the 2007 Ed Kleban Award and a Backstage Bistro Award. His musicals include ReWrite , The Black Suits (music and lyrics by Joe, book by Joe and Robert Maddock), The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks (Theatreworks USA); A Joe Iconis Mini-Musical Triple Feature (Ars Nova); PLASTIC! The Musical (music by Joe and Reza Jacobs, book by Robert Maddock), recipient of a 2006 Daryl Roth Award; Triumphant Baby! (music by Joe, lyrics by Robert Maddock), seen at the Metropolitan Room and the York Theatre, directed by Brad Oscar. Joe is a graduate of the NYU Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. For more information, visit www.MrJoeIconis.com.

The T2R band, led by Mr. Iconis on keyboard, includes Ian Kagey, Mike Pettry and Brent Stranathan. Things To Ruin has Musical Supervision by Matt Hinkley, Choreography by Jennifer Werner, Set Design by Michael Schweikardt, Lighting Design by Chris Dallos, Costume Supervision by Michelle Eden Humphrey, and Sound by Craig Kaufman.
