The ‘90s will be back with a vengeance this summer at the new and improved Main Stage Theatre at Hollywood’s historic The Three Clubs (1123 Vine Street) when I Know What You Did Last Summer: The Unauthorized Musical slices and dices its way back to LA following last year’s sold-out freshmen premiere!
Adapted and directed for the stage by Jordan Ross (co-creator of Cruel Intentions: The Musical, now touring) and co-directed by Joey Bybee (Cabaret Awesome), I Know What You Did Last Summer: The Unauthorized Musical is an immersive, musical love letter to the iconic Columbia Pictures slasher written by Kevin Williamson (Scream, Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries) and starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Ryan Phillippe. Opening night has been set for Friday, June 7, 2019 with performances running through Saturday, July 13, 2019.
Return to the cruel summer of 1997, back when Julie, Ray, Helen and Barry were out having fun, drinking, partying, running people over, and getting away with murder. But, when it becomes clear the truth is no longer six feet under, the friends quickly realize that it’s not over until The Fisherman sings. Literally. Set to a playlist of ‘90s deep cuts from Eve 6, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Third Eye Blind, Lit, The Verve Pipe, and more, #IKnowMusical is bound to have you singing and screaming your heart out all summer long.
The musical will star Matt Shively (ABC’s The Real O’Neals) and Trent Mills (Evil Dead: The Musical) as The Fisherman, Bianca Gisselle (UMPO: Mean Gurlz) as Julie James, Ryan Sutton Stevens (We Need To Talk About Norman: A Psycho Musical) as Ray Bronson, Greer Grammer (MTV’s Awkward) as Helen Shivers, Brian Logan Dales (Singer/songwriter of The Summer Set/DALES) as Barry Cox, Matthew Scott Montgomery (Disney Channel’s So Random) as Max Neurick, Alli Miller (Shakeslesque-To Thine Own Cherry Be True) as both Elsa Shivers and Sunny Egan. Katie Welch, Connor Weil (MTV’s Scream), Natalie Masini (Scissorhands: The Musical), Jared Kusnitz (MTVs Underemployed), Shanera Richardson, and Nick Bredosky will serve as covers.
