I came to producing as a creative outlet during my life as a performer.  WILDCAT THEATRICALS (2002-2010) was my first theatre company--dedicated to new productions of entertaining classics from the golden age of Broadway playwriting and original evenings of vintage music freshly reimagined and interpreted. I learned a lot about making quality theatre out of dust and dreams.  Come take a look at this producer’s “baby pictures.”

“Every time we see Becky Mode’s comedy Fully Committed’ we can’t figure out how one guy plays 40 roles. It must be smoke and mirrors or one heck of a talented actor.” – June Wulff, Boston Globe

Fully Committed dishes up a plateful of fine fun! Delightfully entertaining and hilariously funny summer fare.” – Reva Blau, Provincetown Banner

"From an Asian woman to a French co-worker, Sills has an impeccable range of voices. With slight physical changes, he convinces the audience of his chameleon-like abilities.” –Caroline Hughes, Cape Cod Times

“I impulsively turned to the person next to me as the show ended to deafening applause and said "If every cabaret show was as well done as this, the cabaret rooms would be packed!" There are three performances left. It is a MUST SEE CABARET event!” –Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline Online

“ (4 stars ****)  The  anecdotes about Mercer are so interesting it’s easy to forget how entertaining a bio-cabaret show can be, especially when it’s done this well. “ –David Hurst, NEXT Magazine

“Enables the audience to move through the life experiences of the love, sadness and loss of one of America’s dearly beloved songwriters.” –Sandi Durell, Cabaret Scenes

“Wildcat Theatricals did us the favor of reviving another play that’s fallen into obscurity after having been eclipsed by its more famous (and vastly rewritten) film version. It’s easy to see the delightful charms of this broad, boulevard comedy. It will be interesting to see what Wildcat picks next!” –David Hurst, NEXT Magazine

"A FUN REVIVAL! A cute little parable wrapped in a satire.it’s hard to leave the theatre without a smile.The cast of eight works very well together." -- Jena Tesse Fox, BroadwayWorld.com

"The show is DELIGHTFUL TO WATCH! The production's brisk speed does the script's dirty jokes and one-liners justice, as the ensemble delivers each zinger with bite."  --Samantha O'Brien, OffOffOnline.com

"AN EVEN BETTER REVIVAL [is] George Axelrod's rarely seen 1955 comedy Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? This version by Wildcat Theatricals showed what a company can do with some good actors, even on a shoestring budget and has unearthed A GEM!" --David Hurst, Next Magazine

"[Midtown International Theatre Festival] is also DISTINGUISHED from other festivals by its programming, such as this year's staging of George Axelrod's "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" -- Sam Thielman, Variety

"A biting satirical fantasy, A GOOFY, FUN PIECE WITH A BIG HEART. Axelrod's play gets to me on a much deeper level--The play takes a few turns and I was very impressed with where it ends up.  Director Holly-Anne Ruggiero moves things along seamlessly." --Kat Chamberlain, NYTheatre.com

"Axelrod's 1955 satire hasn't been seen on Broadway since its original run." -- Adam Hetrick, Playbill.com

A new production of the rarely produced Broadway smash about sex, stardom, and the silver screen! A novice reporter gets more than he bargained for when he interviews silver screen sex goddess Rita Marlowe in this devilishly funny satire by George Axelrod (author of THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH and the screenplays BUS STOP, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, and THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE).  WILL SUCCESS SPOIL ROCK HUNTER? was originally produced on Broadway in 1955, where it ran for 444 performances.  The original Broadway cast included Orson Bean, Jayne Mansfield, and Walter Matthau.

TAGLINE/SYNOPSIS: It's homicide for the holidays in this new production of the classic Broadway comedy!  MY 3 ANGELS unfolds in 1910 French Guiana, a region where on Christmas Day the temperature has graciously dropped to 104 degrees. Three convicts are employed as roofers by the Ducotel family. On the way from France is an evil-minded cousin, to oust the father of the family from his business, and his cold-blooded nephew, who is jilting the father's daughter for an heiress. The three convicts—two of them murderers, the third a swindler—take the visitors on. All three have warm hearts and are passionate believers in true justice. Using their array of criminal arts, they try to set matters right for the family.  Originally directed by Jose Ferrer, MY 3 ANGELS opened at the Morosco Theatre on March 11, 1953 and played 344 performances.  The cast included Walter Slezak and Darren McGavin.  Paramount Pictures produced a 1955 film adaptation (in Technicolor and VistaVision!) of the original French play entitled WE’RE NO ANGELS with Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov, Aldo Ray, Joan Bennett, and Basil Rathbone.

BEST CONCEPT SHOW OF THE YEAR – The Siegels’ Nightlife Notes, Theatermania.com 

CABARET PICK – On & Off Magazine 

“Highly Recommended!” – CabaretHotlineOnline.com 

“A terrific cabaret show! Really cool!” – John McDaniel, The Rosie O’Donnell Show 

“A delightfully entertaining show that showcases a grossly underappreciated musical genius – Roger Edens. It’s an inspired idea never before attempted.  THE ROGER EDENS SONGBOOK is a great way to spend an evening – think A&E Biography peppered with terrific songs and great punch lines.” – David Hurst, Show Business Weekly
“The show is a model of the sort in which an entertainer talks not about him or herself, but about someone else. Not only does he sell the crowd on Edens’ significance by the time he finishes, he also convinces them of his own expertise.” -- David Finkle, Back Stage 

“Roger Edens’ songs were organized into a handsome package tied with a glitter ribbon of intelligent patter.” – Peter Leavy, Cabaret Scenes 

“It’s one of the unique pleasures of New York that you can find a show that highlights the life and work of this important yet largely unsung composer/lyricist/producer. In fact, THE ROGER EDENS SONGBOOK is the kind of act that gives life to the very concept of cabaret. A superbly researched show [that] gave us a context for Edens’ work and thereby opened a window into Hollywood’s creative process…fascinating information delightfully delivered in patter and song. Great anecdotes, effective vocals, and engaging arrangements by musical director Ed Goldschneider all helped to create a show as insightful as it was entertaining.” –Barbara & Scott Siegel, Theatermania.com 

“Shining a light on the songwriter and producer so responsible for the sound associated with the great MGM musicals.” – Kenneth Jones, Playbill Online 

“A ‘Behind the Music’ style tribute to the 3-time Academy Award winner. Memorable songs!” – Next Magazine 

“There’s nothing I’d rather do than attend THE ROGER EDENS SONGBOOK!” – Janet Leigh 

“Roger was an incredible talent and truly deserves such a tribute.” – Doris Day

“Roger would have loved it!” – Margaret Whiting 

THE ROGER EDENS SONGBOOK was originally scheduled for a one-month run at Danny’s Skylight Room in Manhattan. The original run was extended, and the show was invited back for an encore engagement, playing for a total of three months. A concert-length version of the show was performed regionally.
