Urban Stages kicked off their 25th season with the world premiere of Joe Iconis’ delightful new musical ReWrite, a trio of off-beat mini musicals by the award winning composer, who’s Things to Ruin, a revue of his songs just completed a well received run at The Zipper Factory. With ReWrite, a trio of mini-musicals (Nelson Rocks, Miss Marzipan, and The Process, Iconis takes a look at normal people in frustrating everyday situations that seem to overwhelm them. The evening directed by John Simpkins with ditzy style is performed by a wonderful cast of young performers, who pull out all the stops to lift this little musical a mile high.
ReWrite is scheduled for a limited run through January 3, 2009 at Urban Stages 259 West 30th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues). For tickets call 212-868-4444 or visit smarttix.com.
