Last night "Villain: DeBlanks" made its New York debut at 54 Below, and the photos say it all. Beginning the night collecting words from the audience, and then reading the resulting script – unedited and unrehearsed – the uproarious first night cast included Bobby Cronin, Bernard Dotson, Barrett Foa, Lesli Margherita, Nancy Opel, Ryann Redmond, and Heather Shisler.
Benefitting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the performance brought the audience to tears, and midway through the show Shoshana Feinstein, videographer, tweeted "Dying of laughter…Literally can't breathe, it's so funny. This cast is ridiculous!" (@shoshanarf)
