Matthew McConaughey VS. The Devil: An American Myth
This terrific new musical by Jonathan Quesenberry, Carrie Morgan, and Emilie Landmann is just as silly as it sounds, yet somehow also...earnest? The extremely appealing Wayne Wilcox plays Mr. "Alright, Alright, Alright" himself on his strange journey towards that Oscar, complete with sexy southern drawl and everything.
Broadway A-lister Lesli Margherita stars as Mephistopheles, who comes after McConaughey on behalf of Satan. Lesli is the hardest working woman in the biz and is so incredibly talented and you are practically guaranteed A+ performances from her every. damn. time. Max Crumm as McConaughey's bestie Woody Harrelson is a dream come true up on that stage and is almost definitely a future Tony winner. Heart eyes emoji times a billion!
This is definitely not boring musical theater. This is a super funny new musical with a score that is radio-ready. The New York Musical Festival exists to champion awesome new musicals like this one.
Runs through July 16. Tickets are only $27.50!
The Broadway musical recorded on film for optimal couch viewing!
There's a reason it won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Musical. It doesn't get fresher and more relevant than this!
