Photo Flash: THE SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION, LIVE! at the Brick Theatre

In a musical that's Democracy in America meets Alice in Wonderland meets Cabaret, Robert Honeywell brings back many of his actor/collaborators from Every Play Ever Written ("Gleefully funny … a must-see for anyone who has been onstage" – New York Times) and Greed: A Musical Love Story ("One of the best new musicals in town" – nytheatre.com) in this bouffon-inspired, satire-laced political fantasia.  Developed with acclaimed clown teacher Sue Morrison. Orchestrations and additional music by Matt Van Brink played live by an onstage band.

The show was written by Robert Honeywell and is directed by Moira Stone. The cast features Gyda Arber, Lynn Berg, Audrey Crabtree, Rasheed Hinds, Robert Honeywell, Iracel Rivero and Alyssa Simon.  The design team includes Robert Eggers (set), Fab Shim (costumes), Mick O'Brien (sound) and Bessie Award- winner Joe Levasseur (lighting).

The performance schedule is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 PM. There is an added performance on Tuesday, November 4 at 8 PM, followed by live video projection of the election returns at The Brick. (And free beer!)

Tickets cost $10 for previews, $18 for regular performances.

Performances are at The Brick, located at 575 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (one block from the Lorimer stop of the L train / Metropolitan stop of the G train).  For tickets and information call Theatermania at 212-352-3101 or visit www.theatermania.com.

This show appears as part of The Brick's inaugural Mainstage Season.  For the first time in its six-year history of providing audacious, high-quality theatrical experience to New York's most cutting-edge audiences, Williamsburg's Brick Theater is packaging six major productions under the umbrella of a single Mainstage Season.  The Brick is also offering a variety of Season Ticket plans to ensure subscribers a first shot at its most exciting offerings to date.

The Brick and its non-profit company, The Brick Theater, Inc. were founded in September of 2002 by Robert Honeywell and Michael Gardner.  Formerly an auto-body shop, a storage space and a yoga center, this brick-walled garage was completely refurbished into a state-of-the-art theater complex, with a large sprung floor and professional lighting and sound package.
