TONY KISER THEATER/2ND STAGE – 

  • 🎼 WE’RE GONNA DIE🍸 Janelle McDermoth has vocal talent and likability and is supported by strong stage musicians.  This 65 minute “non-musical/non-play/non-concert that is not about dying” is certainly entertaining and gives us a genuinely heartwarming view of grief/loss/life.  But is it enough to schlep to the theater-district and shell out $69-$129 for? Therein lies the real question. Through March 22nd – 305 W. 43rd Street. Running Time 65 minutes with no intermission. By Young Jean Lee. Directed and choreographed by Raja Feather Kelly.
