VIDEO: Exclusive Look at Numbers from the New Musical HEIST!
Jack, retired from the heist game after his partner in crime dies on his watch, gets roped into one last job: to infiltrate the cast of a Broadway revival and steal a very valuable necklace off the leading lady on stage. With a team of young thieves-turned-actors, Jack attempts to escape the mistakes of his past while dealing with directors, double-agents and Actor's Equity. Just before opening night, Jack's old partner arrives, having faked his death, and reveals he's also after the necklace! The second act of HEIST! is the entirety of Three Card Monte - audiences see the heist unfold, onstage and off.
HEIST! made its world premiere this summer, in a limited pre-Off Broadway engagement on Thursday, August 9, and will continue through Sunday, September 2nd at The Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street (between West 3rdand Bleecker Streets). Directed by James Will McBride, the production features a book and lyrics by Alex Koceja, music by Michael Uselmann and choreography by Jenna Haimes.
