Twilight: The Musical, a parody of the Twilight book and movie saga, examines our culture of obsession through the story of teenage outsider Bella Swan who risks everything when she embarks on a star-crossed romance with Vampire Edward Cullen. Song titles include: “Life Sucks When Your Boyfriend Is A Vampire”, “Death Never Sounded So Good”, and “I Imprinted on an Infant.”
Twilight: The Musical was created by Ashley Griffin, and features a book by Ashley Griffin, with music and lyrics by Jeremy Ezell, Ashley Griffin, Sean Mahoney, David Mallamud, and Michael Sutherland. The show had its first workshop in NYC in 2010 at the LABA theater, and is currently in development in NYC.
The Musical is being presented by Ulmer Productions, Moxyrah Productions, and Dreamcatcher Entertainment, January 16th, 2012 at 8pm to benefit the national charity organization Blessings in a Backpack.
