Teenage Rock Opera Bowery Wars Opens This Weekend

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.
