The Joe Iconis Rock and Roll Jamboree played the Laurie Beechman Theater for four Mondays nights in August: the 9th, the 16th, the 23rd, and the 30th. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the closing performance this week and brings you photo coverage below.
Rabble-rousing writer Joe Iconis returned to The Beechman, bringing with him his beloved family of musical theater punks. The Joe Iconis Rock and Roll Jamboree was a laid-back, fired-up evening of Iconis tunes, featuring new jams, old faithfuls, and glimpses into the future. This series marked the first leg of his "Death To The Bloodless" Tour 2010. The debut album will be released by Sh-K-Boom this fall.
The show featured Joseph Brent, Katrina Rose Dideriksen, Ian Kagey, Jeremy Morse, Krysta Rodriguez, Lance Rubin, Brent Stranathan, Jared Weiss, with Jason "Sweettooth" Williams and The Kissin' Kazoo Sisters (Liz Lark Brown and MK Lawson).
Special guests throughout August included Felicia Finley ('The Wedding Singer;' 'The Life') on August 9th; Anthony Rapp ('Rent;' Dazed and Confused') on August 16th; Heidi Blickenstaff ('[title of show];' 'The Little Mermaid' on August 23rd; and Lisa Brescia ('Wicked;' Ordinary Days') on August 30th.
