Theater for the New City’s premiere showcase engagement of Charles Busch’s epic new comedy JUDITH OF BETHULIA, directed by Carl Andress (The Divine Sister; Die, Mommie, Die!) begins performances tomorrow Friday, March 30 at Theater for the New City’s Cino Theater (155 First Avenue). JUDITH OF BETHULIA will play a strictly limited 24 performances through Saturday, April 28 only.

{module ad_left_body}Busch as ‘Judith’ is join joined by Dave August (Naked Boys Singing!), Christopher Borg (Penny Penniworth), Larry Bullock (Charles Busch and Julie Halston: Together on Broadway), Jennifer Cody (Shrek, The Pajama Game), Kendal Sparks (Where’s Charley? at Encores!), Mary Testa (Queen of the Mist, Xanadu), Jennifer Van Dyck (The Divine Sister, The Third Story), John Wojda (The Merchant of Venice, Busch’s Queen Amarantha), and Billy Wheelan (Our Leading Lady, The Lady in Question is Charles Busch).

JUDITH OF BETHULIA is an outrageous and bawdy celebration of the Hollywood Biblical epic. Lepers, whores, eunuchs, centurions, evil generals, youthful poets and a beautiful redheaded widow make Charles Busch's latest comedy an event worth praying for.

Busch returns to Theater for the New City following the 2010 world premiere of The Divine Sister which became a sold out hit for the landmark downtown theater. Later that year, Daryl Roth transferred the production to the SoHo Playhouse which became one of the biggest hits of Busch’s legendary Off-Broadway career.

The creative team for JUDITH OF BETHULIA includes:  Scenic and Graphic Design by B.T. Whitehill, Costume Design by Jessica Jahn, Lighting Design by Kirk Bookman, Sound Design by Jill BC DuBoff, and Wig Design by Katherine Carr.
