FORT DICKS THE MUSICAL Premieres In NYC This Fall
Casting has begun for the latest production of playwright, Jeffrey E. Milstein and his prison expose: Fort Dicks - the Musical.
Based a true story, Mr. Milstein, a prolific author both in NYC and regionally, tells the story of a low-level prison in a famed military installation - and then set it to music! The dark social commentary is played like a Marx Brothers movie complete with sight-gags and prat falls. And just like any old movie musical - Marx Brothers notwithstanding - it has a cast of thousands.
For Dicks will be produced by JEM PRODUCTIONS 13, a theatrical organization founded by Mr. Milstein as a platform for his works as well as creating opportunities for young artists to work in the professional world.
"I draw inspiration and patterns in my work from the comedic geniuses of Mel Brooks, Larry David, & Carl Reiner. Its their kind of 'laugh till you think' philosophy that I put into my work," says the ambitious, producer/director/playwright.
Fort Dicks opens in November at the American Theatre of Actors 314 W 54th St, New York.
