Dan Castellaneta makes his UK stage debut in the new American musical comedy The Bicycle Men. The show is written by Dave Lewman, Joe Liss, Mark Nutter and John Rubano with music and lyrics by Mark Nutter. Liss, Nutter and Rubano also join Castellaneta in the cast.
Billed as "a sublimely silly musical with French overtones", The Bicycle Men revolves around Steve (Castalleaneta), a hapless American tourist who crashes his bike and encounters the twisted inhabitants of a sinister French village. Mayhem ensues as Steve steps into a surreal world of depraved marionettes, creepy bicycle repair men other oddball characters. Only the god of bicycles can save the day.
