About This Show

Receiving its New York premiere is the hilarious and irreverent new film noir musical parody, Adrift in Macao, with book & lyrics by Christopher Durang and music by Peter Melnick. Mixing together farce, camp, and tongue-in-cheek wit, it spins the tale of five quirky characters stranded in a Casablanca-like locale in the Far East. Complete with intrigue, silliness and a playfully melodic score!

Directed by Sheryl Kaller with choreography by Christopher Gattelli and musical direction by Fred Lassen, the seven-member cast features Sunset Boulevard Tony nominee Alan Campbell, Will Swenson, and from the Philadelphia Theatre Company’s production of Macao, Rachel deBenedet, Orville Mendoza, and Michele Ragusa, each of whom won Barrymore Awards for their performances. They will be joined by Jonathan Rayson and Elisa Van Duyne.

For all its charms, Christopher Durang and Peter Melnick’s musical parody of film noir lacks a needed edge.
