Celebrity Blogger Perez Hilton to Star in Full House Stage Musical
Casting has been announced for Full House! The Musical!, the new theatrical parody of the popular '90s TV series Full House, which will play Theatre 80 on St. Mark's Place beginning September 7.
Full House tells the story of widowed father Danny Tanner, whose best friend, Joey, and brother-in-law Uncle Jesse move into his San Francisco home to help raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle. Full House! The Musical! will follow Danny's descent into madness as he turns from wholesome Danny Tanner to foulmouthed comedian Bob Saget. Will D.J. develop an eating disorder? Will Joey make it on to Star Search? Who will have mercy on Uncle Jesse? Those questions and more will be answered.
Leading the company as Danny Tanner will be celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, along with Seth Blum (Joey Gladstone), John Duff (Jesse Katsopolis), Amanda Nicholas (D.J. Tanner), Marguerite Halcovage (Stephanie Tanner), and Marshall Louise (the Olsen Twins).
The musical features book, score, and direction by Bob and Tobly McSmith, the team behind Saved by the Bell parody Bayside! The Musical! and Showgirls! The Musical!, with choreography by Jason Wise, scenic design by Bryan Harlett, costume design by Shamira Clark, lighting design by Adam Lash, and sound design by Lauren Vargas.
The Full House television series starred Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier as Danny, Jesse, and Joe, with Candace Cameron as D.J., Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen sharing the role of Michelle. Additional cast members included Lori Loughlin as Aunt Becky, Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler, Scott Weinger as Steve, and Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit as Nicky and Alex. A Netflix spin-off, called Fuller House, begins shooting this summer.
