Joe Iconis's Broadway Bounty Hunter, Starring Annie Golden, to Open Off-Broadway
The Be More Chill composer's new show will play at Greenwich House Theater.
The New York Premiere of the new musical comedy Broadway Bounty Hunter, starring Annie Golden (Violet, Orange Is the New Black), is set for this summer at Greenwich House Theater. The production will begin previews July 9, with an official opening night of July 23 for a limited engagement of 10 weeks through September 15.
With music and lyrics by two-time Drama Desk Award nominee Joe Iconis (Be More Chill) and a book by Joe Iconis, Lance Rubin, and Jason SweetTooth Williams (Be More Chill), the musical comedy received its world premiere production at Barrington Stage in 2016. Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Werner (The Book of Mormon supervising associate director), the off-Broadway cast will be announced at a later date.
Broadway Bounty Hunter is inspired by the exploitation movies of the 1970s. Annie Golden leads the cast as Annie, a down-on-her-luck actress of a certain age who is asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord. The musical is described as chronicling "a woman's journey to find her inner strength and true badass identity — and save the theater."
Rounding out the Broadway Bounty Hunter creative team are scenic designer Michael Schweikardt, Tony Award-winning lighting designers Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, costume and wig designer Sarafina Bush, projection designer Brad Peterson, sound designer Cody Spencer, music supervisor and orchestrator Charlie Rosen, vocal arranger Joel Waggoner, music director Geoffrey Ko, and artistic consultant Nehemiah Luckett.
