CONGRATULATIONS to Summit’s Fred Sauter (book and lyrics) and Paul Leschen (composer) on their musical BEDBUGS!!!, beginning previews tonight at the ArcLight Theatre!
In this girl-meets-bug sci-fi-rock-musical-comedy, Carly, an exterminator, is hell-bent on avenging her mother’s bedbug related death. In an effort to permanently rid the city of its bedbug infestation, she accidentally mutates the pests into blood-sucking, heavy metal rock gods.
BEDBUGS!!!, running through October 26th, officially opens at 7pm on September 14th. Tickets and additional information are available at http://www.bedbugsmusical.com/.
And be sure to check out this fantastic interview with Fred & Paul on HuffPost, “The Boys Behind the Bedbugs”!
