I Spy a Spy
Catch the Off-Broadway premiere of I SPY A SPY, a new declassified musical with book and lyrics by Jamie Jackson and book and music by SoHee Youn, directed and choreographed by Bill Castellino (Cagney, Desperate Measures) with musical direction by Dan Pardo (Amazing Grace). Previews began on Friday, July 5th at The Theatre at St. Clement's for a limited engagement through September 21. The show will have its official opening on Thursday, July 18th at 7pm.
In a "melting pot" neighborhood in Hell's Kitchen, José Rodriguez, an undocumented Mexican delivery guy, has an American Dream--to become "a someone." Alina Orlova, a beautiful but inept Russian spy, also has an American Dream--to bring down America--and to save the family's "Fluff N' Fold!" Speeding through one preposterous and hilarious plot twist after another, José and Alina embark on a wild adventure to fulfilling their destinies. I Spy A Spy is a musical roller coaster ride on which our duo encounters Mexican thugs, Russian spies, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner, and the Department of Homeland Security!
