The quest for a plot! The glamour of despair! A tale of love and honey...'BUZZ, Son of a Bee...an actor's life for me' is an effervescent new musical comedy that weaves together the lives of eight individuals on their journey to find their home in the Theatre. As their paths intersect, they stumble upon an unusual catalyst...Bees! BUZZ is a story about opening your heart, finding your family, and the importance of bees--for audiences of all ages. Life in the Theatre can sting you, but it can also be sweet.
Lyrics: Ariana Johns Music: Darryl Curry Book: Andrew Johns
In March 2017, BUZZ played a limited engagement of 8 performances to sold-out houses and standing ovations at the Sargent Theatre in NYC. Each performance benefitted a different pollinator preservation group/apiary. Previous concerts and readings include The Metropolitan Room, the Theatre at St. Clements, The Actor's Temple, and A.C.A Galleries. BUZZ began development at the Woodstock Fringe Playwright's Unit, followed by a reading at the Friday Night Footlights series at The Dramatists Guild. Buzz was honored by receiving the 2014 Golden Fleece Ltd. 22nd Annual Award for Music Theatre in progress.
