Ashley Spencer, Eric Sciotto, and More Set for Attack of the Elvis Impersonators
Lory Lazarus' musical will play off-Broadway at Theatre Row.
The cast and creative team have been announced for off-Broadway's Attack of the Elvis Impersonators. With book, music, and lyrics by Lory Lazarus, the new musical is directed by Broadway veteran Don Stephenson. Performances are set to begin June 1 at The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row with an opening night on June 15.
In Attack of the Elvis Impersonators, the soul of Elvis returns to Earth and inhabits the body of the most famous rock star in history. He instructs his disciples that to bring peace to the planet we must all unite as one — and to do that the entire human race must impersonate Elvis.
The cast will feature Eric Sciotto (Something Rotten!) as Drac Frenzie, Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages) as Prissy Bordeaux, and Curtis Wiley as Matt Shadow (The Total Bent), with Michael Biren (Crazy for You), Jim Borstelmann (Chicago), Badia Farha (Little Shop of Horrors), Warren Kelley (Birdman), Jeff Kready (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), Emily Jeanne Phillips (Elf The Musical), Catherine Walker (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), Jayme Wappel (West Side Story), Jacob ben Widmar (The Book of Mormon), and Laura Woyasz (Wicked).
With choreography by Melissa Zaremba, and music direction, arrangements, and orchestrations by Benjamin Rauhala, the show's creative team includes Paul Tate dePoo III (set design), Tracy Christensen (costume design), Travis McHale (lighting design), Josh Liebert (sound design), and Shawn Duan (projection design).
