On this quarantine edition of the Showtune Countdown, Mark Blankenship is joined by stage and screen star Annie Golden (Ah, Wilderness!, On The Town, The Full Monty, Violet). Annie and Mark chat about her career and the creation of the Broadway Bounty Hunter cast album, which is now available via Ghostlight Records. Broadway Bounty Hunter features music and lyrics by Joe Iconis (Be More Chill), who also co-wrote the book with Lance Rubin (Denton Little's Deathdate) and Jason SweetTooth Williams (Be More Chill).
"An electric musical comedy with an irresistible, soulful new score, Broadway Bounty Hunter follows down-on-her-luck actress Annie (Annie Golden) who has just about had it with showbiz, when along comes a gig no one could have predicted: the opportunity to become a real-life, Kung Fu-fighting bounty hunter. With a six-piece powerhouse band, the musical chronicles the journey of this woman of a certain age –from bad auditions on the streets of New York to beating up bad guys in the jungles of South America and discovering her true badass identity along the way. This New York premiere – produced by Jennifer Ashley Tepper (Be More Chill) and Allison Bressi (Songbird) – ran at Greenwich House Theater from July 9 through August 8, 2019, following the musical’s sold-out, critically acclaimed world-premiere at Barrington Stage Company."
