Son of a Gun, the new folk rock musical about a complicated father-son relationship, has delayed its first preview performance by one day due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. As a result, the off-Broadway show will begin previews on November 2, instead of the previously planned November 1 start date. Opening night is set for November 6 at Theatre Row's Beckette Theatre.
The musical tells the story of Danderhauler Agamenon Khrusty, heir apparent to the Khrusty family band. When Dan meets the love of his life, an awkward opening act named Lucy Sunshine, he’s forced to confront his charismatic but domineering father.
Son of a Gun stars American Idiot’s Van Hughes and Hair’s Ryan Link as the titular son and his father, respectively. The cast also includes Alex Branton, Billy Brimblecom Jr., Michael Castillejos, Lori Fischer, Rebecca Hart, Jimmie James and Martin Landry.
The production features music and lyrics by Don Chaffer (with additional lyrics by Lori Chaffer), book by Don Chaffer and Chris Cragin, and direction by Gabriel Barre.
