54 Below will present three benefit performances of Villain: DeBlanks, a fill-in-the-blanks whodunnit, on July 24, July 31, and August 7. Written by Billy Mitchell, the performances will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Performers scheduled to take part include Tony Award winner Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Barrett Foa (Buyer & Cellar), Justin Guarini (Wicked), Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita (Matilda The Musical), Nancy Opel (Rodgers Hammerstein's Cinderella), drag performer Hedda Lettuce, Adam Feldman, Julie James, and more.
The show is described as follows: "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."
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is an industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization. Since 1988, BC/EFA has raised more than $250 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States by drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community.
