The short-lived off-Broadway musical The Last Smoker in America will record an original cast album featuring Farah Alvin, Natalie Venetia Belcon, John Bolton, and Jake Boyd. Released through Yellow Sound Label, the album will be available for download beginning June 25.
In a world where smoking has recently been outlawed and the penalties are growing stricter by the minute, The Last Smoker in America is the story of Pam (Alvin), a woman trying desperately to quit. While her husband Ernie (Bolton) dreams of being a rock star and her son Jimmy (Boyd) listens to so much rap music he thinks he’s black, Pam finds herself being pushed to the edge of reason. Will Pam kick the habit or fight for her right to light up?
The futuristic musical features a book and lyrics by Bill Russell and music by Peter Melnick. Directed and produced by Andy Sandberg, The Last Smoker in America played off-Broadway Westside Theatre August 2 through September 1.
