New York – Music, magic mushrooms, Fairy Dust Beer? If Wendy Darling wanted an escape from her life in Jason Hookman’s office, she certainly found it with Pete and his band. Don’t judge her too much – working for the infamous art collector of Jolly Roger Publishing is no easy existence! For a nice girl who grew up too fast, with too much responsibility, a step back might be just the step forward she needs. Join Wendy as she explores her wild side on this journey of self-discovery that goes “straight-on till morning!”
The play – complete with original rock score – performed live – will make you laugh till you think!
The cast features Yasmeen Jawhar, Joe Yoga, Jen Perney, Bill Chambers, Brian (Beezy) Douglas, Marlon (Marbar) Kaltenborn, Sonseray Reed, Ben Williams, and Debby Bell. (Ben Williams appears courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association). Ms. Underwood directs this world premiere. Simona Berman and Debby Bell, stage management; Maurice Williams; lighting and audio; Brooke McGowan, photography; Jake Thomas; graphic art and promotional design.
