Jawbreaker (7/29/10) Staged Reading

Shoshana Bean, Eden Espinosa, Jenna Leigh Green, Megan Hilty, Katie Thompson, Marty Thomas, James Snyder, Elizabeth Brackenbury, Aynsley Bubbico, Scarlett Cherry, Deborah S. Craig, Nick Galbraith, Katie Kern, Jen Malenke, Lesli Margherita, Vic Mazzone, Aaron Neely, Leslie Odom, Jr., & Jackie Seiden., notes from the filmer: A musical adaptation of the 1999 film, "Jawbreaker." The musical is described as "a darkly comedic, stylish girl clique musical with the mythic story of Courtney 'Satan in heels' Shayne and her minions who play a nasty birthday prank on their picture perfect bestie. It wasn't their fault the jawbreaker got stuck in her throat...or was it?" The musical is performed as a staged concert reading. Rather than one person per role, the concert is done with some of Broadway's best alternating in the roles.  Shot from the front of the venue. The show was sold out and everyone was literally packed in like sardines, so some head obstructions here and there, but the master worked around them well and managed to get good coverage and close ups that made for a good capture, A
