The award-winning production team behind the festival hits FATTY FATTY NO FRIENDS, and WHISKEY PANTS: THE MAYOR OF WILLIAMSBURG - is proud to announce the extension of their brand-new musical, BEWARE THE CHUPACABRA, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2015 New York International Fringe Festival to the FringeNYC Encore Series at Soho Playhouse.

 

 


Seeking to impress his future father-in-law, innocent dressmaker Teddy Baskins embarks on a dark and musical journey from 1920’s New York to the dangerous jungles of Mexico in pursuit of the legendary Chupacabra, a mythical, goat-sucking beast. 



BEWARE THE CHUPACABRA was created by Mind The Art Entertainment's Associate Artistic Director R. Patrick Alberty and features original music & orchestrations by Christian De Gré (2015 FRIGID New York Audience Favorite Award Winner.) Both creators, who were behind last year's FATTY FATTY NO FRIENDS (Time Out New York Critic's Pick) serve as co-directors for the piece. The musical also features production design by Ashley Soliman (2014 FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award winner), musical direction by Aaron Butler, set design by Kyle O'Connor, choreography by Mariel Lowe, photography by Rachel Esterday, concept art by Elias "Uva" Diaz and is being produced by Serrana Gay with R. Patrick Alberty,  Priya Iyer and Christian De Gré.
