'Slut,' at the American Theatre of Actors



James Hammerstein Productions presents Slut, a new musical opening at the American Theatre of Actors on the 1 Oct 2005, following previews from the 13 Sep 2005. The limited engagement will run through to the 13 Nov 2005.

Slut tells the story of Adam, a single dude on a life long quest for one night stands, his best friend the brilliant Doctor Dan, and the sexy rocker Delia who comes between them. Set in the East Village and around the world, this highly improbable, irreverent adventure comes with singing, dancing, partying, and raspberry margaritas!

He's young. He's straight. He's single. And he's probably not gonna call. Finally, a man - and a musical - with no cheesy lines or lame excuses. Slut tells the adventures of a motivated guy on a life-long quest for one-night stands. It's 'South Park' meets the East Village, 'Peter Pan' meets the 21st century and boy meets girl meets boy meets girl. Slut -- a musical without euphemisms. What are you doing tonight?

With book and lyrics by Ben H. Winters and music by Stephen Sislen, the cast of Slut features Jenn Colella, Mary Faber, Harriett D. Foy, Andy Karl, David Josefsberg, Kevin Pariseau, Jim Stanek, and Amanda Watkins.

The director of Slut is Gordon Greenberg and the choreographer is Warren Carlyle.

In the summer of 2003, Slut became the first show ever to sell out its entire run at the New York International Fringe Festival before the festival opened.

Slut has set design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes Annie Kennedy, lighting by Jane Cox, and sound by Peter Hylenski. The musical is presented Off-Broadway by Dena Hammerstein and Pam Pariseau for James Hammerstein Productions.
