Red Scare on Sunset
New York City
Stephanie Tanner as Mary Dale, Nicole Swann as Pat Pilford, Jason Pittman as Frank Taggert, April Ayala as Marta Towers/Salesgirl, Ben James as Mitchell Drake, Brandon Dauphinais as Bertram Barker, Jeff Graham as Malcomb/Uncle Sven/Yetta Felson, Jeff Sandridge as R.G.Benson.
This spoof, set in Hollywood in 1951, focuses on the film star Mary Dale as she finds herself in the middle of a communist plot to take over Hollywood and destroy the “star system.” This edgy comedy embraces the film style made commonplace in such movies as “The Women” “The Red Menace” and “His Girl Friday.”
• On December 9, Red Scare on Sunset was performed at the BMCC Studio Theatre in Manhattan. The entire cast traveled to NYC for this unique educational collaboration with the Borough of Manhattan Community College.
