On December 9th, The American Theatre Group will present a new concert staging of VERY VERY, the Shakespeeare Rock Show created by Jay Leibowitz, Zac Lasher, and Jason King Jones. An ambitious and exciting new work, VERY VERY features 28 original songs adapted from Shakespeare's As You Like It in a sexy reinvention of a classic comedy of rebellion, love, freedom, and redemption.
VERY VERY tells the story of Rosalind and Orlando, two young lovers who flee the tyranny of home only to reunite in a sexually charged and confusingly passionate exile.
Songs feature a modern rock vocabulary from various genres blended together in Zac Lasher's unique compositional style and Jay Leibowitz's lyrics, which cleverly deconstruct Shakespeare's original text. Jason King Jones will stage the exclusive event.
VERY VERY has been in development since April of 2012. Two live industry concert readings of the show were performed to great acclaim earlier this year at the legendary Gibson-Baldwin Showroom in midtown Manhattan. Tickets are free and open to the public.
