Natasha, a cross between Lucille Ball and a female Borat, moves to America from Crapistan and vows to be truly American. Go Natasha Go!
Natasha Mail Order Bride Escape America: The Musical, The Hollywood Fringe Festival
Natasha Mail Order Bride Escape to America: The Musical, is based on a half-hour comedy that follows the adventures of Natasha, a citizen of the 4th world of Crapistan, who has come to America, desperate to be a “True American”. Natasha is a cross between a Lucille Ball and a female Borat. This musical is an adapted stage version of the pilot. A theatrical show including multi-media, original music, live percussionists, belly dancers from Crapistan and a cast of 15 actors!
While we are pitching to the Networks, I was asked to do the Hollywood Fringe Festival! The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual Theater festival showcasing new cutting edge Hollywood projects. It is viewed by over 10,000 theater goers annually and is reviewed and received globally. To embark on this project I needed an incredible Production Team.
Meet the Team!
