Williamsburg: The Musical cast    Williamsburg! The Musical


(www.williamsburgthemusical.com)

  1. We sit down for an nterview with Will Brumley (Co-creator) and Allsion Guinn (actor). They perform two songs from the show.  Williamsburg! The Musical is a hilarious pop/rock parody of Brooklyn’s over-hyped hipster ‘hood. A suicidal Trust-Funder encounters a disenchanted Hasidic Jew in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. On their potholed road to love, they battle a greedy real estate agent whose diabolical plan to overtake the neighborhood spawns an army of zombie-like hipsters. Will the unlikely heroes of Williamsburg band together to save the sub-borough? Or will gentrification reign?

Days and Nights

We sit down for a chat with Marc Stuart Weitz (Adaptor/Director).  How is life lived in confinement? Trapped in an attic, a young girl re-reads the only text available – Chekhov’s THE SEAGULL – where characters struggle with family, longing, and happiness destroyed. Her story is their story. Her name is Anne Frank.

Interview with Alex Goldberg (Playwright/Producer), Megan Tusing (Actor), and Lauren Cook (Actor).  Nobody chooses one’s family. Especially 14-year old Kaylee.
