After a successful year-long run in Hollywood, Calif., Worst Ever Productions presents its first installment of the cult-hit evening of comedy WORST AUDITION EVER in New York City at Joe's Pub - produced by Christine Lakin, Alec Ledd, Daniel A. Miles, and Corri English. The ticket proceeds from this performance of WORST AUDITON EVER will be donated to The Actors Fund. Below, check out highlights from the show before it plays New York City!
WORST AUDITION EVER is an evening of comedy about a group of artists (actors, directors, dancers, etc.) telling their real stores about the all too familiar audition process. The format is simple - a blank stage with one microphone - making the shared stories truly intimate and personal. For anyone who has ever had an embarrassing moment "putting themselves out there" in the name of art, WORST AUDITION EVER presents a wry and candid evening of some of the most awkward moments in artistic vulnerability – because pain is best served funny and with cocktails.
Artists participating in WORST AUDITION EVER: Tyler Maynard (Altar Boyz, Little Mermaid), Kevin Duda (The Book of Mormon, Les Liaisons Dangereuses), Jena Friedman (writer for Late Night With David Letterman), Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked, For the Record: Baz Luhrman), John West (The Drowsy Chaperone, Newsical the Musical), Cheryl Stern (La Cage Aux Folles, Candide).
Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys Original Cast, The Midtown Men) hosts; Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages, Surf the Musical) directs.
Opening night is set for Monday, June 18, 2012 at 9:30 PM (doors at 9:00 pm). Tickets are $20 with a TWO DRINK MINIMUM, and can be purchased online at www.WorstAuditionEver.com.
Worst Audition Ever was conceived around a circle of friends drinking beer and telling war stories about their artistic lives. The darkly funny, off-the-wall material that ensued is what conceptualized the show. Some of LA's funniest comedians have graced the stage revealing their awful, hysterical tales. Painfully true, mutually hilarious and completely cathartic, Worst Audition Ever has built an underground following playing small clubs in Los Angeles and building a viral fan base since April 2011.
