PARALLEL WORLDS UPDATE MAY 5TH, 2018
THE PW PRODUCTION TEAM IS HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT A BRAND NEW VERSION OF PARALLEL WORLDS WILL BE unveiled THIS JUNE AT THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FEST!! 4 Performances only!! June 17, 20, 21, 22 AT THE BROADWATER THEATER.
This all new 90-minute production stars american idol's Elise Testone and L.A. phenom joe marson.
A powerhouse vocalist whose incredible stage presence and vocal maturity rank with the best, Elise Testone is the perfect combination of soul, rock, attitude and restraint. Equally as impressive and at ease belting James Brown style vocals over a relentless funk groove as she is resting her voice gently over a ballad, Testone’s range of influences and vocal capacity know few limits.
Joe Marson is a gypsy soul with a calling to make music. He refers to it as Electric Soul Magic and has been putting all of his experiences into lyric and song ever since he was a young world traveller. He creates timeless music that bridges the gap between the influential decades that inspire his songwriting. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
Take a look back at origins of parallel worlds. It all began with a One-Night Only 45-minute sneak peek at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles during the summer of 2015. This original "Proof-of-Concept" version featured Ryan Hudson, Cassidy Catanzaro, Jonathan mahan, Ricky Bakken, Joe Hundertmark, Sal Leonardo, Tripp Beam,Laura Vall and Thomas Hjorth. The show's feature film starred Shawn Reaves and marci miller.
The very next summer a 15-performance workshop version starring Ryan Hudson, Cassidy Catanzaro, Angelica Abrams, Braden Lyle, Julia Lage and Mike odabashian was staged in Los Angeles. The hard rockin' two-hour show won over l.a. rock and theater critics including L.A. Weekly's Bill Raden.
In September of 2017 Parallel Worlds made a very special appearance in NYC at the infamous Ars Nova Theater. The one-night only sneak-peak starred Youtube sensation Carrie Manolakos, Broadway star Matt DeAngelis and was directed by Jimmy Maize.
