From the Vortex:

VORTEX Repertory Company presents
the World Premiere of a New American Musical
The Secret Lives of the InBetweeners
Feb.06-Mar.07, 2009, Thurs-Sun 8pm

As a keystone of VORTEX 21, the 21st season of original work, VORTEX Repertory Company proudly presents the world premiere of a new American musical, The Secret Lives of the InBetweeners by Austin playwright and composer Aaron Brown.

Will Charlotte ever find her dream man? Can Joe escape the shadow of his Mother? Can Waldo save the Dwarf Maiden in his favorite computer game? Will Harry ever commit to one girl at a time? Will Tina get married just because she is pregnant? Who will they be and who will love them? Can Hope overcome Fear?

This is the mind of the Urban Hipster, and these are The Secret Lives of InBetweeners.

This musical comedy combines VORTEX’s skill in producing original musical theatre with dynamic music, crisp designs, and powerful performances. Austin-grown, this new work showcases the form of the traditional, contemporary American Musical and is appropriate for all audiences (no nudity, no bad language, great live music).

The Secret Lives of the InBetweeners features a stellar cast including VORTEX Repertory Company members Betsy McCann, Jo Beth Henderson, and Errich Petersen. Introducing Jonathan G. Itchon, Sarah Gay, Rudy Ramirez, Trey Deason, and Jennifer Coy to The VORTEX stage.
Directed by VORTEX Producing Artistic Director Bonnie Cullum with Musical Direction and arrangements by New York guest artist Chris Lavely. VORTEX award-winning designers Ann Marie Gordon (scenery), Jason Amato (lighting), and Pam Fletcher Friday (costumes) create the visual spark of the show. Poster art by Anne Marie Gordon.

Aaron Brown’s previous plays, Hysteria, The Bridge Burner, Norm L, and The M.O. of M.I. have all debuted at The VORTEX, and his new musical comedy continues to challenge genres with its unconventional characterizations. Brown’s play, The M.O. of M.I. was also made into a feature film.

VORTEX Repertory Company recently received B. Iden Payne Awards for Outstanding Production of Music Theater and Outstanding Director of Music Theater (Troades: The Legend of the Women of Troy and director Bonnie Cullum). The artists of The VORTEX are uniquely qualified to bring you the world premiere of this exciting new musical.
