A Musical Romp through the History & Culture of Greenwich Village

Andrew Frank & Doug Silver's new musical takes you on a sexy, high energy musical tour of New York's landmark neighborhood. From Peter Stuyvesant to the Stonewall Girls, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire to NYU, this revue brings Greenwich Village's storied 400-year history to life. The 18 songs include "Oh, Chumley's" (a Prohibition-era Barber Shop Quartet); "Resist the Grid" (about the "grid protests" of 1811), "Splatter Me All Over" (a tribute to painter Jackson Pollock); and "Smoke Smoke (Hey, Man)".

Writers Andrew Frank and Doug Silver are the team behind the Off-Broadway musical Sidd, which CurtainUp called an "upbeat spiritual musical. . . in the tradition of Godspell". Variety raved "[Silver and Frank] clearly have a knack for melody -- several of their songs stick pleasantly in the brain -- and they're at home with everything from power ballads to Kander & Ebb-style cool." The duo is a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater workshop. Earlier this year, their adaptation of Macbeth: a Walking Shadow received rave reviews. Michael Criscuolo of NYTheatre.com called it "one of the best Shakespeare productions I've ever seen" while Fred McKinnon of TheaterOnline.com raved that it was a "mayhem-packed evening of exciting theater." Original concept by Fran Kirmser
