Will Holman stars as Boom-Boom in LEGENDS!

WILL HOLMAN is starring as the entertaining stripper Boom-Boom in the touring comedy LEGENDS! – Now playing at The Wharton Center, 1 Wharton Center, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI starting Tuesday, Nov. 14th through Sunday Nov. 19, 2006 and continuing to other cities before its Broadway debut.

Will is thrilled to be performing along with TV's "Dynasty" stars Joan Collins and Linda Evans as they take on the roles originally played on the road by Carol Channing and the late Mary Martin. Collins plays the fading moving star Sylvia with Evans as Leatrice.  

Legends! centers on two somewhat desperate and waning movie stars Sylvia (Collins) and Leatrice (Evans) who are both courted by an unscrupulous young producer to star together in a Broadway show, despite the fact that they have hated each other for decades. He convinces both ladies to go along by misleading them into believing that they will be starring in the show with Paul Newman.

OBLIVIOUS TO EVERYONE, A ONE-WOMAN PLAY ABOUT THE MEDIA’S FIERCE IMPACT ON WOMEN, EXTENDS ON NYC’S THEATRE ROW

A real success story is happening on Theatre Row as the sleeper hit of The 2006 NY International Fringe Festival goes into its second extension. Oblivious To Everyone is a social satire written and performed by Jessica Lynn Johnson, and directed by Christopher Sorensen (Americana Absurdum). Performances will take place from December 1st to December 16th at The Studio Theatre in the Theatre Row Complex (410 West 42 St.) in NYC. PRAISE FOR OBLIVIOUS TO EVERYONE: “The show is hilarious! But the theme, it’s quite serious.” - Fox 5 News/Toni Senecal “Johnson skillfully plays 10 characters, perfectly capturing them all, from a porn star to a womanizer on Elimidate.” - The Village Voice “More oohs and ahhs at this year’s Fringe Festival than baby Suri in Vanity Fair. Oblivious To Everyone manages to make you laugh out loud when you probably should be crying.” - NY Press “A bravura performance by Johnson that ranks as the best surprise of this year’s Fringe Festival.” - NYTheatre.com “Features more fully-realized characters than a half-dozen other Off-Broadway shows.” - HX Magazine “An excellent one-woman show about the power of the media.” - Back Stage “A highly entertaining solo show…definitely worth seeing.” - Theater Mania
