ReWrite is a wild and unconventional piece of theater, comprised of three mini–musicals that connect in surprising and dangerous ways. Seen briefly at Urban Stages in 2008, the show has been substantially revised and its cast and creators are chomping at the bit to show New York what they've done. Directed by John Simpkins and featuring members from Iconis's notorious family of actors, ReWrite is a weird, funny, and heartfelt piece of geek–pop madness. This ain't no concert, this ain't no cabaret, this is weirdo, bloody musical theater at its finest!
