Off-Broadway is like a box of chocolates, or at least it will be soon! The new off-Broadway musical comedy The Chocolate Show!, featuring songs, comedy sketches and audience (volunteer only!) participation, will begin performances at the 47th Street Theatre on February 1, with opening night set for February 14. Casting will be announced at a later date.
This musical comedy follows the glamorous, and eccentric Cookie Conwell on the final night of her reign as World Queen of the Cocoa Bean as she fulfills her lifelong dream of hosting The Chocolate Show!, where she must choose her successor. Who will be the next to wear the solid chocolate crown? How will Cookie handle the transfer of power? And, oh yeah, is chocolate really bad for dogs? The answers to these serious questions and more will be answered in this interactive show.
The Chocolate Show! features a book and music by Alan Golub and Laura Goldfader with lyrics by Golub. Directed by Dan Foster, the show is choreographed by Grady McLeod Bowman and will feature musical direction, arrangements and orchestrations by Jeffrey Klitz.
