New York, NY (December 9, 2011) – Producers Andrew Asnes and Timothy Schmidt have announced the New York Premiere of the new musical comedy Rated P for Parenthood.  Following on the heels of a successful World Premiere at the South Orange Performing Arts Center in May, 2011, Rated P will begin performances on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 with Opening Night set for Sunday, February 26, 2012 at the Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street).

With book and lyrics by Sandy Rustin, music and lyrics by Dan Lipton & David Rossmer and direction by Jeremy Dobrish, Rated P for Parenthood chronicles every stage of modern-day parenting, from conception to college, with giant doses of heart and humor.  A versatile cast of four takes the audience through the ups and downs of childrearing – from the sublime to the ridiculous – in a series of comic and musical vignettes in under 90 minutes.  A hilarious, fresh, and decidedly irreverent look at an age old topic, Rated P provides all the wistful joy of childrearing …at a fraction of the cost of braces!

Sandy Rustin commented, “Comedy greats will tell you to “write what you know.”  So when, in a postpartum haze, I accidentally sent a photo of my newborn son (and my own vagina) to everyone I know – naturally I wrote a show about it.  This show is a quilt of parenting moments – the hilarious, the heartbreaking, and the humiliating – all based on real life moments from me, my family, and my friends. I am thrilled to share it with New York audiences.”

Tickets are $89.50 and can be purchased through Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.  Rated P for Parenthood will play the following schedule: Tuesday – Thursday at 7:00, Wednesday and Saturday at 2:30, Friday and Saturday at 8, and Sunday at 3:00.

 

“P is for Perfect! . . . deserves to go directly to midtown Manhattan.”

Peter Filicia, Newark Star-Ledger

Additional details regarding the Off-Broadway debut will be announced shortly.
