We had no idea there was even a Twilight: The Musical, but alas, there is and it will be making it’s off-Broadway debut Jan. 16 at 8 PM at New World Stages, but only for ONE night.
According to Playbill, the special performance will benefit Blessings in a Backpack, a program designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal program, but have little to no food on the weekends.
The show is a parody of the hit movie that examines our culture of obsession through the story of teenage outsider Bella Swan who risks everything when she embarks on a star-crossed romance with Vampire Edward Cullen.
The one night only performance will star Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal) as Bella Swan, Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked) as Rosalie, Hermione (et al.), Lauren Lopez (A Very Potter Musical) as Alice (et al.), Jason Michael Snow (The Book of Mormon) as Harry Potter (et al.), Olli Haaskivi (Jurassic Parq: The Musical) as Jasper (et al.), Eddie Gutierrez (Miss Abigail’s Guide…), Lindsay Dunn (West Side Story), Michael McArthur (Newsies), Kaitlin Mesh (West Side Story) and Clifton Samuels (Follies).
Yes, you read that right…there are Harry Potter characters in the musical. Does this mean there will be an epic battle between wizards and vampires? Now we’re curious to see it. We loved “A Very Potter Musical” and we feel this could be similar.
