Lauren and Waterwell celebrate IT Award nominations for their 2005 production The Persians: a comedy about war with five songs — a production deemed ‘Brilliant’ by the NY Times. The nominations are for Best Original Music Composition, Best Choreography, and Best Musical. Please cast YOUR vote at www.nyitawards.org — winners announced in September.
To see Waterwell’s latest hilarious and daring creation, Marco Millions (based on lies), go to www.waterwell.org or www.ticketcentral.com. Mon, Wed thru Sat Aug. 4th – 26th at the Lion Theater. This time, Lauren not only composed all the music, she also performs on stage every night
With Marco Millions (based on lies), Waterwell puts its signature irreverent stamp on an obscure play by one of America’s greatest dramatists, Eugene O’Neill. It is a musical kaleidoscopic and freewheeling ride that confronts questions of class and race that are as important now as they were in 1928… or 1271.
The production premiered at the Lion Theater within Theater Row, 42nd st, during the summer of 2006. It garnered praise from Variety, TimeOut NY, Backstage, and many more.
In this track, Kevin Townley, Hanna Cheek, Arian Moayed, Rodney Gardiner and Tom Ridgely perform the Opening Number to Marco Millions: Based on Lies, recorded at NYC’s Joe’s Pub.
