Bastard Jones - 2017 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$40 - $60

Based on Henry Fieldings bawdy 18th century novel, Bastard Jones is a rollicking adventure of deception, misunderstanding and bed-hopping. With book, lyrics, and direction by Marc Acito (Allegiance , Chasing Rainbows) and music by Amy Engelhardt, Bastard Jones centers on Tom Jones, a charming bastard-born himbo with a heart of gold and a knack for trouble. Toms expression of his natural self gets him banished from the only home he knows, leading him to conscription in the army, a half-naked romp at a country inn and a stint as the boy-toy to an aristocrat whose machinations make Dangerous Liaisons look like childs play. Because Bastard Jones is about young people being banished simply for being themselves, 100% of the productions profits will benefit Cyndi Laupers True Colors Fund.

While it's not unexpected to have the title character of a musical based on Henry Fielding's infamously bawdy 1749 novel "The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling" be introduced to the audience while enjoying the afterglow of a lusty time with an agreeable lass, what's a bit surprising at first about BASTARD JONES is that while singing of juicy peaches, pulsing blood, bees, flowers and whatnot, their post-coital intimacy includes her helping to strap on his wooden leg.
