Jacob Sterling Moving to Off-Broadway

I am SO happy for David Pittu. What's That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling is just out and out brilliant (here's my New York Press review) and it's moving to New World Stages. Below is the press release I received.

DARYL ROTH
IN ASSOCIATION WITH
ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY

DAVID PITTU’S COMEDY HIT
WHAT’S THAT SMELL: THE MUSIC OF JACOB STERLING

TRANSFERS TO NEW WORLD STAGES
FOLLOWING ACCLAIMED ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY RUN

PREVIEWS BEGIN SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2008

Following it’s sold out engagement, Atlantic Theater Company’s critically acclaimed world premiere of David Pittu’s comedy What’s That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling will transfer to an Off-Broadway run at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). Performances will begin Saturday, November 1, 2008.

The new comedy, written and performed by Tony Award nominee David Pittu (Is He Dead?, LoveMusik), co-starring Peter Bartlett (The New Century), is co-directed by Pittu and Atlantic Artistic Director Neil Pepe (Speed-the-Plow) with original music by Randy Redd.

The Off-Broadway transfer will be produced by Daryl Roth in association with Atlantic Theater Company (Neil Pepe, Artistic Director; Jeffory Lawson, Managing Director).

What’s That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling is a hilarious musical parody that charts the career of eternally up-and-coming (and fictitious) musical theater composer Jacob Sterling (Pittu). A rare, up close and personal visit with an artist of questionable gifts who performs from his songbook and shares his human struggle to keep musical theater alive and well into the 21st century.

What’s That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling features scenic design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Martin Pakledinaz, lighting design by Matthew Richards, sound design by Jill DuBoff, projection design by Dustin O'Neill, and production stage management by Alison DeSantis.

What’s That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling will play Monday evening, and Wednesday through Saturday at 8:00pm, with Saturday matinees at 2:00pm and Sunday performances at 3:00pm and 7:00pm. Tuesdays are dark.

Tickets are $55.00 and $65.00, and are available by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200, online at www.telecharge.com, or in person at the box office.

NEW WORLD STAGES is located at 340 West 50 Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
