From the Press Release:

ArKtype, led by producer Thomas O. Kriegsmann, is thrilled to announce the NYC premiere of a hybrid punk rock multi-media theater event following the work's highly acclaimed US and European premieres. Brooklyn punk legends World/Inferno Friendship Society (WIFS) join forces with visionary director Jay Scheib (Untitled MARS, Performance Space 122; This Place is a Desert, Under The Radar '08), one of contemporary theater's brightest young visionaries, to create a punk-rock operetta for the times.
Continuing the charge in the evolution of hybrid performance genres via the ultimate 20th century archetype of alienation, Peter Lorre, WIFS dedicate a furious song cycle following Lorre's enigmatic existence from formative days alongside Wedekind, Lang and Brecht through a cycle of two World Wars into his pitiless fall from grace in the drug-infused quagmire of Hollywood vines.

Music and Libretto by World/Inferno Friendship Society; Jack Terricloth - Vocals; Sandra Malak - Bass/Vocals; Lucky Strano - Guitar; Peter Hess - Tenor Saxophone; Ken Thomson - Baritone Saxophone; Raja Najib Azar - Piano; Maura Corrigan - Alto Saxophone; and Brian Viglione - Drums; Additional Text by Jay Scheib; Lighting Design by Caleb Wertenbaker; Video Design by Jay Scheib & Keith Skretch with Naomi White; Assistant Director Caleb Hammond; Production Manager Caleb Wertenbaker; Company / Band Manager Greg Daly; Produced by ArKtype / Thomas O. Kriegsmann; Co-Conceived and Directed by Jay Scheib;

This project was created with a commission and residency from Peak Performances @ Montclair, Montclair State University, Montclair, NJ, Jedediah Wheeler, Executive Director, and was partially developed through a space grant from LaGuardia Performing Arts Center’s LPAC Lab Program
