Immersive Production of HOW THE WESTONS WON Comes to Jefferson Market Library

In association with off-Broadway's Out of the Box Theatrics (OOTB) an immersive production of the musical, How the Westons Won, will be present December 14-23, at the Jefferson Market Library, an historic Victorian Gothic building in Greenwich Village.

Directed by Joe Barros (Bastard Jones, Gigi, Cagney), How The Westons Won is set for a full production following workshop presentations in February at the New York Film Academy and in March 2017 at the cell theatre. Featured in the cast is Sydney Shuck (Annie tour), playing the teenage female lead, and Brian Charles Rooney (Broadway: The Threepenny Opera; Bedbugs!) as General George Custer. Casting continues.

Set to a contemporary rock score with odes to Western musicals, the musical portrays children dealing with a mom's opioid addiction. Two teenagers, left on a lonely Tucson ranch, accidentally bring to life a toy diorama with Buffalo Bill, George Custer, Geronimo, Calamity Jane and a young Native American squaw. Through interacting with the mythical characters, the family learns to deal with their dysfunction and move forward. For more information, visit the show's website at www.HowtheWestonsWon.com.

How The Westons Won features book and lyrics by R.C. Staab and music by Aaron Latina. Staab's musicals and plays include Dumb Luck (winner: TRU Voices New Musical Series 2017, Music Theatre of Madison's 2017 Festival of New Musicals), and F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Diamond as Big as the Ritz (recently featured in an industry reading). Missouri-based Aaron Latina is a professional composer, orchestrator and music director of film, musicals, commercial projects and movie trailers.
