VILLAIN: DeBLANKS

A fill-in-the-blanks whodunit

 

July 24, July 31 and August 7 at 11:30 pm

AT 54 BELOW, BROADWAY'S SUPPER CLUB

www.54Below.com

 

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents three benefit performances of "Villain: DeBlanks," a fill-in-the-blanks whodunnit, at 11:30 pm on July 24, July 31, and August 7. The performances will benefitBroadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Written by Billy Mitchell, "Villain: DeBlanks" is a late-night fundraiser where the cast needs the audience as much as the audience loves the cast.

Among those scheduled to appear are 2014 Tony Award winner Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), stage and TV star Barrett Foa (Buyer & Cellar, CBS' NCIS: Los Angeles),American Idol finalist Justin Guarini (Wicked), Olivier Award-winner Lesli Margherita (Matilda the Musical), Broadway legend Nancy Opel (Rodgers+Hammerstein's Cinderella), drag legend Hedda Lettuce, Tony Award winning producer and actor Hugh Hysell (My Big Gay Italian Wedding/Funeral), Time Out New York's man-about-town Adam Feldman, Sirius XM host Julie James and an array of other hysterical entertainers.

 

"Good news: Phillip DeBlanks is dead! He was a villain, a scoundrel and a lousy dancer. Or was he? Is it possible Phillip DeBlanks was framed by one of his circle of friends?"

The audience provides nouns, verbs, adjectives, desserts and body parts, and the actors provide the laughs - uncensored and unrehearsed - as the cast enacts the story using the words put in their mouths. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," performed by some of the funniest people in New York.

Like a ride to summer camp in the back of a station wagon, each hilarious performance will be ridiculously one-of-a-kind, and, best of all, the proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

July 24: Bobby Cronin, Bernard Dotson, Barrett Foa, Lesli Margherita, Nancy Opel and Ryann Redmond with Heather Shisler

July 31: Jennifer Cody, Adam Feldman, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Hugh Hysell, Hedda Lettuce and Christine Pedi with Heather Shisler
