A Time Out NY Critics’ Pick written by Billy Mitchell (SRT’s graphic arts director, and a favorite cast member of early Originals productions such as HAIR, THE 1940s RADIO HOUR, and TEN LITTLE INDIANS) VILLAIN: DeBLANKS is an uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths! The audience provides nouns, adjectives, and verbs (the wilder, the better) and the actors provide the laughs—uncensored and unrehearsed—as they solve the mystery of Philip DeBlanks’ untimely demise. It’s “Clue” meets adult Mad Libs, performed by the funniest people in show biz. Like a ride to summer camp in the back of a station wagon, each hilarious performance is ridiculously one-of-a-kind.

Cast includes Tony-nominee Brenda Braxton (Smokey Joe’s Café, SMASH), Hollis resident and Hollywood actor, Richard McGonagle (500 Days of Summer), hilarious Off-Broadway dynamo Marissa Rosen (Tony & Tina's Wedding, Bedbugs the musical), Broadway funnyman Todd Buonopane (Cinderella, Chicago, 30 Rock) and The Originals co-founders Dana Packard and Jennifer Porter

MADCAP HILARITY! What happens when you mix equal parts Murder, She Wrote with Mad Libs? You get Billy Mitchell’s rib-tickling theatrical confection.–
