BUZZ, Son of a Bee...an actor's life for me
The quest for a plot! The glamour of despair! A tale of Love and Honey...BUZZ, Son of a Bee is an effervescent new musical comedy that joyfully weaves together the lives of eight individuals as they find their home in the Theatre. And bees! From vulture bees to honey bees, we've got bees...(and we love 'em)
With lyrics by Ariana Johns, music by Darryl Curry, and book by Andrew Johns, BUZZ stars Michael Citriniti*, Chris D'Amico, Nora Davis, Ariana Johns*, Evangeline Johns*, Richard Koons*, Perryn Pomatto* and Rick Roemer*. Directed by Andrew Johns, choreography by Max McGuire and Mark Mindek.
Accessible yet sophisticated, BUZZ lives in the realm of '[title of show]' with a dash of 'Something Rotten' = abundant laughter and vibrant, memorable songs.
