An hour of wickedly funny showbiz merriment, and some occasional candy… FRONT ROW CENTER
NEW YORK CITY – After acclaimed runs in the UK and Australia, writer/performer Peter Michael Marino returns to NYC with the comical autopsy on his  $6 million West End Desperately Seeking Susan musical fiasco in DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT. Directed by Obie Award winner John Clancy, this limited engagement will be performed Saturday & Sunday, March 22 & 23 at The Triple Crown Underground.   “Highly entertaining. A salutary lesson to anyone looking to the stage for fame, fortune and happiness.”  — British Theatre Guide   In 2007, American playwright Peter Michael Marino wrote a musical based on the film “Desperately Seeking Susan” featuring the music of Blondie. It opened on London’s West End…and closed a month later.
DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT offers a behind-the-scenes peek at how this $6 million musical was made and unmade: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; the workshops, the previews, the scathing reviews, closing night and beyond.   Saturday and Sunday, March 22 & 23 at 8pm. The Triple Crown Underground 330 7th Ave at 28th St. New York, NY 10010 http://www.SeekingTheExit.com/   Tickets are “pay-what-you-can,” available on a first-come, first served basis; no advance reservations will be taken. Full bar available.   Free British sweets provided by The London Candy Company.   For more information or an interview with Peter Michael Marino, call (917) 825-3549 or email [email protected]. Hi-resolution photo/logo here: http://www.tinyurl.com/seekingpics   “Fast-paced fun and engrossing… a simply uplifting and completely engrossing tribute to the human spirit.” — The List, Edinburgh
