And are any of you really all that surprised?!
Twi-hards of the New York Metropolitan Area – we know where you’re going to want to be on January 16th, 2012. If you’re not there, you might miss your chance to see Twilight history in the making. On that very fateful night at New World Stages, a one-night only concert reading presentation of the parody Twilight: The Musical is being presented!
Can. You. STAND IT????
One Life To Live star Meghann Fahy will be taking the lead role as Bella in this “parody” version of the tale of forbidden vampire love, co-starring alongside Jenna Leigh Green, Jason Michael Snow, Olli Haaskivi, Eddie Gutierrez, Lauren Lopez, Lindsay Dunn, Michael McArthur, Kaitlin Mesh, and Cliff Samuels.
According to the press release, the musical — yes musical! — will “examine our culture of obsession through the story of teenage outsider Bella Swan who risks everything when she embarks on a star-crossed romance with Vampire Edward Cullen”. Song titles include: ├óΓé¼┼ôLife Sucks When Your Boyfriend Is A Vampire├óΓé¼┬¥, ├óΓé¼┼ôDeath Never Sounded So Good├óΓé¼┬¥, and ├óΓé¼┼ôI Imprinted on an Infant.├óΓé¼┬¥
This couldn’t get any better if we thought of it ourselves!
Oh, except it does get better in one other way. Proceeds from the show will go to benefit Blessings in a Backpack, a unique program designed to “feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal program, and have little to no food on the weekends.”
So, basically, we’ll all get to laugh our asses off while benefitting a good cause. That’s the spirit! LOL!
