For its premiere show of the 2013 Season, TheatreWorks New Milford will debut award-winning playwright Christopher Durang's musical comedy, ADRIFT IN MACAO, with book and lyrics by Durang and music by Peter Melnick.

Nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Best Music, Adrift in Macao is a hilarious musical parody of classic film noir movies. Everyone who comes to Macao, China in 1952 is waiting for something, and though none of them knows exactly what that is, they hang around to find out. The characters include your film noir standards, like Lureena, the curvaceous blonde, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf-and-turf casino owner, her first night in town. Then along comes Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysterious villain "McGuffin." With songs and quips, puns and farcical shenanigans, this musical parody is bound to please audiences of all ages.
