Earlier tonight, A Commercial Jingle For Regina Comet, the first new musical to premiere in New York City since the pandemic shutdown opened at the DR2 Theatre down in Union Square. Performances run through November 14, 2021. 

The cast includes Broadway favorites Bryonha Marie Parham, Alex Wyse, and Ben Fankhauser. Fankhauser and Wyse are also responsible for the Book, Music, and Lyrics. The creative team is rounded out by director Marshall Pailet, choreographer Stephanie Klemons , scenic designer Wilson Chin, costume designer Sarita Fellows, lighting designer Aja M. Jackson, sound designer Twi McCallum, music director Alex Goldie Golden, and production stage manager Hannah Woodward. 

The musical follows two nobodies dreaming of writing one hit song for everybody, but their day job composing jingles for commercials isn’t the big break they hoped. That is, until they’re plucked from obscurity by a world-famous pop star named Regina Comet and she wants them to create an anthem for her supernova pipes... and her new perfume. Will they be able to set the world ablaze with their tunes?
