The show, written by John McKinley especially for Intervision Entertainment, is an incredible tale set in 1940. A dramatic narrative slowly unfolds around the guests, leaving patrons feeling as if they were dropped right inside a classic black-and-white film. Rampant with intensity and reflections on personal choices, honesty, and true friendship, it all happens in a classic American nightclub setting, filled with good food, booze and lounge singers crooning some of the best tunes from the era..
Spring. 1940. Mickey and Worm are best pals and partners in grifting, gambling, and all kinds of shady deals. Mickey is a failed boxer who took a fall for a big payoff; Worm is the brains to Mickey's brawn, but is tired of scraping by for a living and wants a regular job. Night club singer Maddy is Mickey's long-time moll, but she's got aspirations for Broadway -- and even a chance to pursue her dream, if she's willing to leave Mickey for Lou, a rich and shady night club owner. Giselle, a seemingly innocent young nightclub singer, is more a femme fatale than anyone suspects and becomes intertwined amongst them all. Lou has a fortune in cash ripe for the picking and somebody is going to get it -- leaving some dead, some disappointed, and some a whole lot richer..
The podcast: After several successful runs Mickey & Worm returns to the days of Lou’s Club Royal, when you would sit at the bar and talk about the Adventures of Maisie or the Shadow, Mickey & Worm: the Radio Play. Directed by the great evil mastermind of the stage Ghislaine (insert diabolical laughter), and featuring the voice talents Ryan Phillips, Korinne Alexis Willkening, Ian Williamson, and Steven Farbman. Look for the first chapter this winter.
