In One, Two, Whatever you do… Former child star Angela L. Wilcox finds herself desperate for a job. But things spin out of control when she tells one teensy fib – and it goes viral! To save her name, the starlet highjacks a local children’s theater production to beg the audience to tweet, or not to tweet. The play that results is a darkly comic tale about a public face and the cost of keeping it well made up.
Playwright Vanessa Shealy, who also stars as Angela, makes her return to FringeNYC following her critically acclaimed play, Tea in the Afternoon, in FringeNYC 2006. Other plays include American Drum Circle (Actors Studio Spring Festival, ESPADrills) and A Captive Audience (upcoming Estrogenius Festival, Nov. 2011).
Melissa Attebery’s New York stage directing credits include original works at venues such as The Abingdon, HERE, Queens Theatre in the Park, FringeNYC, TADA and Westbeth. Melissa also assistant-directed for Tina Howe at the 24 Hour Plays on Broadway.
The cast includes stand up comic and actor, Rick Younger (Paramount pictures Morning Glory; national tour of RENT). Younger also appears every month on NBC’s The Today Show. Also starring: Ilana Becker (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Hinterland, Spoiled Cherries), Kelly Strandemo (Antigone Noir, Othello), Ivan Perez (The Berenstain Bears) as well as the playwright, Vanessa Shealy (Crooked, ATWT).
Costuming this production is Donald Sanders, of the Tony Award-winning William Ivey Long Studio (Hairspray, The Boy From Oz, Chicago). Donnie’s original costumes have also been admired in the Bloomingdales’s Christmas windows. Broadway lighting designer David Castaneda (Irene’s Vow, Marvin’s Room) will light the performance, and Helen Ammon serves as set designer.
The award-winning production company, Younger Child Productions was born five years ago to produce and develop independent theater, film (shorts, features and webisodes), and live comedy in New York City. One, Two, Whatever you do… will be their second production for FringeNYC.
