Production Description

Casting an immediate one-night replacement for "Speakeasy Dollhouse." Opportunity to become a permanent cast member down the line. Synopsis: "Based on a true NYC murder case, 'Speakeasy Dollhouse' immerses the audience in a surreal, Prohibition-era time capsule featuring mobsters, moonshine, burlesque, and more. The show brings an actual unsolved murder to life in the downtown building that once served as mobster Meyer Lansky’s hangout. A speakeasy owner, Frank Spano, was shot and killed on a Manhattan street in 1935. Though the shooter was caught, his case was inexplicably dismissed, leaving the question of motive forever unanswered. As audience members meander through a speakeasy bar, a private alleyway, a bakery, and more, they are privy to conversations and whispered snippets from cast members about the victim's marital infidelities, mob connections, and other clues."
