Sponsored in part by Yale Repertory Theatre's Binger Center for New Theatre, POP! will play for 18 performances, July 11 - August 10. Opening Night is Friday, July 12.

The cast for POP! includes John Mincks (Andy), Ian Stearns (Candy), Grey Garrett (Edie), Christie Jackson (Viva), Audra Honaker (Valerie), Evan Nasteff (Gerard), and Axle Burtness (Ondine).

Who shot Andy Warhol? The fabulous drag queen Candy Darling hosts a happening whodunit musical in which the famous - and infamous - denizens of Warhol's legendary Factory all have motives to pull the trigger. But the pop art icon unravels an even bigger mystery as he confronts not only the prime suspects, but also his art and his own greatest creation: himself.

POP! features book and lyrics by Maggie-Kate Coleman and music by Anna K. Jacobs. The production will play Firehouse Theatre, 1609 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA. Call (804) 355-2001 or visit
