Tom Rocco

Tom is in the cast of the developmental reading of the rock comedy, Viva Los Bastarditos!

On Monday October 30th, Broadway rockers James Barry and Luke Wygodny will headline in a developmental concert reading of Jake Oliver’s original rock comedy, VIVA LOS BASTARDITOS!

Presented by Otter Sparrow Productions and directed by 2017 Lucille Lortel Award winner, Jess Chayes (Misery, Peter and the Starcatcher associate director), VIVA LOS BASTARDITOS! follows the screwball adventures of Western Massachusetts’ most famous rock trio, The Pickles, and their grass-roots movement of artists, misfits and patriots, as they struggle to get past their own differences and take back their beloved homeland from dastardly con man, Dancin’ Eddie Danson (Scoop Slone).

Under the music direction of James Olmstead and Xander Rovang, BASTARDITOS! mashes absurd comedy with original indie/punk rock songs (played live by Barry and Wygodny) to explore the themes of social justice and the challenges artists and political movements face in finding a unified voice and making meaningful change together.

James Barry (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Million Dollar Quartet) and Luke Wygodny (Once, American Idiot national/international tours) lead a cast of Broadway regulars including 2009 GLAAD Award Winner Lavita Shaurice-Burr (She Likes Girls Ohio Theater, War Horse national tour), 2010 MAC award winner Tom Rocco (The Who’s Tommy [Uncle Ernie]), Mark Emerson (Phantom of the Opera national tour), Kathy Connolly (Wind in the Willows Christmas Two River), Dorothy Abrahams, Suzanne Lenz, Dan Truman, Andrew Shulman, Shyaporn Theerakulstit, Jasmine Holloway and Scoop Slone (The Who’s Tommy)

The concert reading will be on Monday, October 30th at 7:30pm at La MaMa at La Galleria, 47 Great Jones Street, New York, New York 10003
