Benefitting God’s Love We Deliver

Birdland Theater is proud to announce that the hilarious improv show Villain: DeBlanks will make it’s debut on 44th Street Wednesday, December 12 at 9:45pm. 100% of proceeds from this performance will benefit God's Love We Deliver.

Celebrity guests will include hilarious “Legend of Off-Broadway“ Julie Halston ("Sex and the City," upcoming Tootsie the musical), three-time Tony-nominee Rebecca Luker (Music Man, Mary Poppins), Tony-nominee Brenda Braxton (Smokey Joe’s Café, "SMASH"), Tony nominee Micah Stock (It's Only A Play, The Front Page), UCB funnyman Jeff Hiller ("30 Rock," Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson), and scene-stealer Jared Zirilli (Summer - The Donna Summer Musical, Lysistrata Jones).

A Time Out NY Critics’ Pick, Villain: DeBlanks, written by Billy Mitchell, is an uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words the audience puts in their mouths! The audience provides nouns, adjectives, and verbs (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs—uncensored and unrehearsed—as they solve the mystery of Philip DeBlanks’ untimely demise. It’s “Clue” meets adult Mad Libs, performed by the funniest people in show biz. Like a ride to summer camp in the back of a station wagon, each hilarious performance is ridiculously one-of-a-kind.

Previous casts have included Kathleen Turner, Bruce Vilanch, Nancy Opel, Annaleigh Ashford, Barrett Foa, Lesli Margherita, Frank DeCaro, Hunter Foster, Beth Leavel, The Skivvies, Lena Hall and more.

“Madcap hilarity! What happens when you mix equal parts “Murder, She Wrote” with Mad Libs? You get Billy Mitchell’s rib-tickling theatrical confection.”
–BroadwayWorld.com

“Off-the-hook comedy!”
–KABC-LA

“Unapologetically, hilariously, fun! The largest and most public game of vaudevillian Mad Libs I have ever seen. And while the actors are Tony Award winners and celebrities, the audience is the star of the show.”
–Applause! Applause!

God's Love We Deliver is an American non-profit organization which cooks and home-delivers nutritious, individually tailored meals to people in the New York City metropolitan area living with severe illness.
