Jayson III).

The musical had its premiere at the 2006 NY International Fringe Festival, and had an extended run as part of the 2006 Fringe Encore Series. In 2008, the show moved to Theatre Row, where it sold-out its extended run at the Clurman Theatre. This current staging began its run at 45 Bleecker Theaters where after 5 preview performances the theater was shut down due to a landlord-tenant dispute. Performances then resumed a week later at The Acorn.
