Octomom! the Mu$ical

Did the Octomom have Angelina Jolie envy?

Is the ruin of America caused by the need for fame, money, and power?

Is life just one big Vaudeville act?

Will the “American Angels” save us all?


These are the questions you might get answered, starting Saturday night at The Fake Theatre, at 4319 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood.

You can witness "The American Psyche" gone completely off the tracks for 62 minutes with no intermission. This zany, vaudevillian revue that plays like a Mad magazine sketch filled to the breaking point with American Icons and spirited wacky show tunes should put a smile on your face even if the economy has left little in your pockets. Go experience this with it's cast of talented actors singing, dancing and spoofing American culture and the latest news.

Chris Voltaire believes that the Octomom and Bernie Madoff can be immortalized and saved by his American Angels songs. The play is performed in the studio of artist/comedian Paul Kozlowski, on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood, the intimate space is usually utilized for stand up comedy acts. The Musical is the first in a series of shows that Voltaire, (no not that Voltaire) is writing with the idea of being a new comedic voice at the intersection of news and pop culture. Unlike the original Voltaire, this show is less tongue in cheek, although satirical, it has an upbeat ending.

Chris Voltaire, who acts/directs/produces and did the book and lyrics for the show is Los Angeles based. He has been seen in such films as Julie Delpys' Looking For Jimmy and persons unknown with Naomi Watts. He made his screen debut in Alive, directed by Frank Marshall. For four seasons he played the role of Boz Biship opposite Cheech Marin, on Don Johnson’s NASH BRIDGES. He previously wrote a show on the DADA art movement.

Chris is joined by a very funny cast including: Lynette Li who plays the Octomom's mom and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. Blake Hogue plays Ponzi, Igor, a television pitchman and an over the top real estate broker. Lovely Molly McCook plays Octo. Alexandera Holtzman plays Angelina Jolie and various other parts. John Combs plays Bernie Madoff, John lived in New York and actually worked on Wall Street for 25 years. When the previous economic down turn hit bottom, so did his livelihood, so he now is a full-time working actor in Los Angeles the last 10 years. Stu Barron who plays the Banker and various other roles, has studied at the Stella Adler acting theatre. Producer, Beverly Leech, also worked intensively with Stella Adler. Beverly’s most recent tv and film credits include, Criminal Minds, Mad Men, and Bloodwork, directed by Clint Eastwood. Dinora Walcott, (Real) is a standout as the the narrator who’s musical numbers tie everything together. She has a strong voice and presence that provides just the right tone to these situations. She is a graduate of Harvard and has performed in CSI-NY and ABC's Eastwick. The play’s music is composed by Rachel Lawrence.

The answer to at least 3 of the above questions is yes.
