The cast of Williamsburg! The Musical
(Visit the Press page for hi-res press photos. Photo Credit: Jonathan Grey)

Williamsburg! The Musical is a hilarious pop/rock parody of Brooklyn’s over-hyped hipster ‘hood. A suicidal Trust-Funder encounters a disenchanted Hasidic Jew in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. On their potholed road to love, they battle a greedy real estate agent whose diabolical plan to overtake the neighborhood spawns an army of zombie-like hipsters. Will the unlikely heroes of Williamsburg band together to save the sub-borough? Or will gentrification reign? With songs like "One Stop (To Excitement)," "Peter Luger Lullaby," and “Million Dollar Crackhouse,” this timely Roast of the Burg juxtaposes Missed Connections and “Hipstory Lessons” to comically exploit
the cultural mish-mash of “the coolest neighborhood in America.”
