Billy Mitchell, our Director of Production Services, returned to 54 Below on Wednesday, March 22 with his show VILLIAN: DeBLANKS in a benefit for the American Civil Liberties Union.
The audience-favorite’s all-star cast, including Oscar and two-time Tony nominee Kathleen Turner (War of the Roses, Serial Mom), Jan Maxwell (Follies), Lesli Margherita (Matilda), Michael Potts (Book of Mormon, True Detective), Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock, Star Trek: Discovery), and Tony nominee Micah Stock (It’s Only a Play, The Front Page).
Patrick Hinds (co-founder & host of Theater People Podcast), joined the shenanigans as our special media guest.
You’ll laugh your (BODY PART)______ off! A Time Out NY Critics’ Pick written by Billy Mitchell, VILLIAN: DeBLANKS is the uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths. The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs—uncensored and unrehearsed—as they enact the story of Philip DeBlanks’ untimely demise. It’s “Clue” meets adult “Mad Libs,” and it’s never the same show twice!
An Encore performance in support of American Civil Liberties Union will take place on Wednesday, May 31st.
