Stranger Sings: The Parody Musical

The portal to the Upside Down has reopened again – the award-winning, hit Off-Broadway show Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical recently celebrated its opening night, transporting Playhouse 46 at St. Luke’s (308 W. 46th Street) into immersive and in-the-round satirized versions of Hawkins, Indiana, and the Upside Down.

Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical is a wild and irreverent send-up of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things and all its campy ’80s glory. Take a trip back to Hawkins, Indiana, 1983: when times were simpler, hair was bigger, and unsupervised children were getting snatched by inter-dimensional creatures.

Join Mike, Eleven, Lucas, Dustin, and the whole Hawkins gang for a night of adventure, thrills, pubescent angst, heavy synth, poor parenting, convoluted love triangles, cheap effects, dancing monsters, and maybe, just maybe… justice for everyone’s favorite missing ginger, Barb Holland.

The cast features original Stranger Sings! cast members Caroline Huerta, Garrett Poladian, and SLee, who are joined by Jean Christian Barry, Jamir Brown, Jeremiah Garcia, Dashiell Gregory, Jeffrey Laughrun, Hannah Clarke Levine, Harley Seger and Shawn W. Smith.

This production reunites original creative team members Jonathan Hogue (book, music and lyrics), Nick Flatto (director), Michael Kaish (music supervision, arrangements and  orchestration) and Ashley Marinelli (choreographer).
