BEST MUSICAL – FringeNYC 2010

BY MARSHALL PAILET, BRYCE NORBITZ
AND STEVE WARGO

DIRECTED BY MARSHALL PAILET

Limited Engagement Begins June 12 at the Soho Playhouse

TRIASSIC PARQ The Musical, the 2010 Best Musical winner at FringeNYC, is set to play an Off-Broadway limited engagement at the Soho Playhouse, June 12th through August 5th. Opening night is Wednesday, June 27th. Written by Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo, TRIASSIC PARQ is directed by Marshall Pailet, with choreography by Kyle Mullins and musical direction by Zak Sandler. The young cast of TRIASSIC PARQ features Lindsay Nicole Chambers, Brandon Espinoza, Wade McCollum, Claire Neumann, Lee Seymour, Shelley Thomas, and Alex Wyse.

Raucous and hilarious, TRIASSIC PARQ The Musical vividly brings together music, sex and singing dinosaurs in ways hitherto unimagined. Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they've held as truth. TRIASSIC PARQ is an unflinching musical meditation on science, faith and love. Like all great tales laden with import, it is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Lindsay Nicole Chambers appeared on Broadway in Hairspray, Legally Blonde and Lysistrata Jones, and she can currently be seen in the hit web sitcom “Submissions Only.” Brandon Espinoza’s Broadway credits include Les Miserables, The Will Rogers Follies, Gypsy, and Big, and he starred in MTC’s Captains Courageous, The Musical.

Alex Wyse appeared in Lysistrata Jones on Broadway and Lost in Yonkers at Paper Mill and Cleveland Play House. Alex has a recurring role on HBO’s “Bored to Death.”

Co-author/composer Marshall Pailet is currently developing a new musical for the stage and screen with DreamWorks Theatricals/Animation. Other credits include Super Claudio Bros. (Best Musical DC Fringe '10); Who’s Your Baghdaddy, or How I Started the Iraq War (Woolly Mammoth, Best Musical DC Fringe ’11); On a Glorious Day (Houston Stages); Where It’s At (FringeNYC); and Loch Ness.
