The Falcon Theatre presents A Dog Named Fish production of Fellowship!, a musical parody of "The Fellowship of the Ring". Written by Kelly Holden-Bashar and Joel McCrary with music by Allen Simpson, Joel McCrary directs nine of the world's best improvisers in this Broadway style musical for Middle-earth. The entire original cast from the award-winning 2005 production is returning, which includes Brian D. Bradley (Mad TV writer), Lisa Fredrickson, Kelly Holden-Bashar, Edi Patterson (Groundlings, David Spade's Show Biz Show), Steve Purnick, Cory Rouse, Ryan Smith (Mad TV writer), Peter Allen Vogt (Hannah Montana, Cath & Kim) and Matthew Stephen Young.
This wild, hilarious jaunt through Tolkien's fantasy world gives fans all their favorite characters from the films and books, with one big difference - they're funny. Fellowship! features twelve original songs, from the over-the-top opening number with barefooted tap-dancing Hobbits, to an elf-on-human '80s power ballad with a live guitar solo performed by the rightful heir of Gondor. In another song, the Balrog (a terrifying creature of shadow and flame) performs a sequin-studded New York cabaret number.
For its premiere in 2005, Fellowship! won Musical of the Year and Best Comedy Ensemble at the LA Weekly Awards. The show was recognized by many papers in and around the LA area with such honors as Critic's Pick, Best Bet, and Pick of the Week.
