Ready for ‘The Shining’ the Unauthorized Musical?


The ShiningThe sick and twisted characters of The Overlook Hotel have been resurrected. However, this time with some singing credentials in Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of The Shining.

The Stephen King horror novel, turned Stanley Kubrick film classic, turned musical parody, showcased Tony Award winner Alice Ripley (Next to Normal) as Wendy and Tony Award-nominated actor, Douglas Sills (The Scarlet Pimpernel), as Jack at a sneak peek last night at Pearl Studios in New York City.

The musical features book and lyrics by Joe Lovero (Book of Leo) and composer extraordinaire Jon Hugo Ungar.

Other cast showcased in last night’s sneak peek include Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening) as the “boy who shines” Danny; Mark Price (Mary Poppins) as Tony (aka the little boy that lives inside Danny’s mouth); Andre Ward (Rock of Ages) as “top chef” Dick Hallorann; Cait Fairbanks (Heathers: The Musical) and Brittney Lee Hamilton (The Countess of Storyville) as the “come play with us” Grady Sisters; Max Roll (our token British actor) as the murder enticing caretaker, Delbert Grady and Stuart Ullman; Tom Deckman (Spamalot) as Bill Watson, Lloyd the Bartender, the infamous Bear, plus the Female Doctor; and Todd Alan Johnson (Aida) as none other than the “creepy voice” of The Overlook Hotel.

The show is expect to open official Halloween 2015.
