Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin' Rock Opera Rises Again

Fresh off a near sellout run at the Fringe Festival and following up its sold-out Off-Broadway extended run, Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin’ Rock Opera returns to LA by overwhelmingly popular demand.

Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls, Party Down) & Tony Award winner Daisy Eagan (The Secret Garden) return with a cast packed with the hottest rising comic talents from both coasts, including Willam Belli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck, HBO’s Cinema Verite) as a drag queen version of J-WoWW and Jessica Buttafuoco (Daughter of Mary Jo and Joey.)

Boasting a song list that includes: Snooki's Lament, GTL and I F'n Love you, I F'n Hate you, the show gives America’s favorite Guidos and Guidettes a Broadway makeover with a Greek Chorus of drunk girls, a lot of laughs and surprising amount of heart. It is written by Franzese & Hanna LoPatin (who star as Ronnie and Sammi), produced by Samantha Scharff (Saturday Night Live, TV Funhouse) and directed by Groundlings alum Drew Droege (The Sarah Silverman Program, Reno 911!).

Audiences are also treated to a different special guest “Grenade” at each performance. Past “Grenades” include: Actual Jersey Shore cast member Angelina Pivarnick, Jason Ritter (NBC’s Parenthood, The Event), Joel Michaely (The Rules Of Attraction), Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates) Brendan Sexton III (AMC’s The Killing, Boys Don’t Cry) & many more.

Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin’ Rock Opera runs April 11 – May 30 at The Hayworth Theater, 2509 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. 90057. Preview performances are March 29, April 4 & 5. For reservations call 323-960-4442 or visit www.plays411.com/jersey.
