Star Wars, Robot Wars, Storage Wars, Parking Wars, Border Wars, Whale Wars.  Does the world need another "Wars?"  Of course! Bowery Wars, Part 2 is a new rock musical that opens this weekend, April 28th, and runs on Saturdays and Sundays until May 20. It's a Romeo and Juliet-inspired story that's set on New York City's corrupt, impoverished and crazy-dangerous Lower East Side in 1903 and stars a company of teen actors and musicians. (We love that Tybalt and Mercutio are cool goth girls in this version of R&J. Also, If you need to catch up, here's a synopsis of Bowery Wars, Part 1.) The action takes place on the streets of NYC and the audience follows along. Act 1 starts at 3:15 p.m. at 120 East 2nd Street and winds up with Act 2 over at 19 East 3rd Street. The musical was written and directed by Ryan Gilliam and composed by Michael Hickey. You can find more info and tickets here.
