Congratualations to HUSH The Musical!, which is one of the selected shows performing at the current The New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC. It is a one-act musical comedy strategically set in the VIP waiting room at LaGuardia airport during a blinding snowstorm which has halted all departures. Two stranded, eccentric characters and their opposing philosophies are forced into comical confrontations with delightfully humorous consequences. Georgia, a New Age Buddhist meditation instructor encounters a successful, materialistic businessman, Othello Salviati. They are joined by an inept Hit Man and a kooky Stewardess and Othello's Wife.
Music for Hush is composed by Charles Mandracchia, who also produces & directs. The libretto was adapted from Etta Cascini's original Italian comedy SHHHH by Emelise Aleandri, Artistic Director of Frizzi & Lazzi.
Jessica Mazo, the host, explores the origins with the Producers and cast of HUSH The Musical, which previously garnered the "Winner of the Audience Appreciation Award" at the Midwinter Madness Theatre Festival.
