RESTAURANT MUSICAL COMEDY RETURN WITH NEW NAME

Attention restaurant workers…and customers! Beginning July 8, Waiting Around—the Restaurant

Musical (formerly titled The Black & White Blues”) will play at the Allways Lounge and Theatre,

Waiting Around is the musical comedy that celebrates the food business, all from the servers’ point

of view. The show had a three-year run at Le Chat Noir, followed by an off-Broadway production in

2006. After the NY run, it was decided that the title should be changed, for clarity.

Composer/Producer Harry Mayronne returns as Musical Director, along with original cast member

Chris Wecklein, who also co-produced the New York run with Mayronne. New cast members

include Tracy E. Collins, Jason Kirkpatrick, and Darcy Malone. In her debut as Director is Amanda

Zirkenbach, who also serves as choreographer. Cecile Casey Covert returns as costume

designer, along with lighting designer Su Gonczy. The book & lyrics are by Ricky Graham.

On opening night, July 8, and prior to their premiere, the cast has been invited by Barbara Motley

to perform at Le Chat Noir in what will be one of that establishment’s final shows.(Mayronne and

Wecklein were in one of Le Chat’s first three shows in 1999.) Meanwhile, the Pfister Sisters will

entertain at Allways until the cast arrives for their opening performance. Details at the show’s

website. Presented by Music Makers, LLC.

What: Waiting Around-the Restaurant Musical

When: Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, & Mondays July 8-25

Tickets: $20 (Fri, Sat, Sun) and $15 (Mon) More info at show website

Time: 8:00 pm
