Re-Designing Women to Receive New York Premiere

The unauthorized sitcom spoof comes to the Baruch Performing Arts Center.

The world-premiere cast of Re-Designing Women, coming to the Baruch Performing Arts Center next month.

BevNap Productions will present the New York premiere of Re-Designing Women, a parody of the 1980s sitcom. The show is written by Jamie Morris, whose works also include Mommie Queerest, The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode, The Silence of the Clams, and Gilligan's Fire Island.

Directed by Christopher Kenney (The Threepenny Opera), the unauthorized comedy is set to run from June 10-21 at the Baruch Performing Arts Center. The show is described as follows:

"A female-owned Atlanta-based interior design firm, plagued by the faltering economy, is on the brink of collapse. Things change when one of the sassy southern belles has an idea to save the business. She pitches a reality show to Andy Cohen, the hotshot producer from the Bravo network, and soon, camera crews are following the zany antics of the four outspoken feminists, their ex-con deliveryman, and their daffy family friend. Fame and fortune quickly turn their world upside down as infighting and jealousy threaten to ruin their perfect sitcom existence."

Re-Designing Women had its world premiere at Uptown Players in Dallas and has been seen in Galveston, Texas; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and San Diego. The original Dallas cast, which returns for the production's New York run, includes Mikey Abrams, Kevin Moore, Michael B. Moore, Jamie Morris, Chad Peterson, Darius Anthony Robinson, and Ashton Shawver. The creative team also features costumes by Suzi Cranford, wigs by Coy Covington, and photos/video by Mike Morgan.
