"Cellphones," a new rock musical written & directed by William Electric Black. The war in Iraq and terrorists’ threats keeps America on constant alert. Homeland Security is not only the buzz, but the only place that’s offering a decent job. A new recruiting booth is about to open up at 7:00 am Monday, in Central Park. The night before the booth opens, twenty strangers gather and wait in line. While they wait, they rock out about timely topics such as Britney Spears, botox, SUVs, MP3s, rap music, fast foods, low fat diets, saving Michael Jackson, gay marriage, the Internet, porn, soccer moms, Enron, Bush, Starbucks, Martha Stewart, weapons of mass destruction, and of course, cellphones. Move over “Hair”--cellphones are now the rage. In fact, during the rock musical, audience members get calls from the cast.
Cast: Eve Blackwater, Chris Brady, Nathan Brisby, Peter Philip Clarke, Andrew Daphnis, Max Ferguson, Judith Griegossies, Verna Hampton, Raguel Jordan, Sheena Marie Ortiz, Valerie M. Santiago, Kat Yew.
