“Me and Lee” Comes to the Brick!

Returning this week for three final performances: Me and Lee: The Musical, written by, songs by, and starring Jason Trachtenburg, of Pendulum Swings and the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. 

Me and Lee is adapted from the the book by Judyth Vary Baker , in which she wrote of being a teen science super-star, and her claim of involvement in a secret Government Project to design a cancerous bio-weapon designed to kill Fidel Castro. According to Baker’s account, she met and fell in love with another Government agent involved in the same project. His name: Lee Harvey Oswald.

I play their handler David Ferrie (the guy played by Joe Pesci in the movie JFK).  The cast also includes Emily Frembgen, Miz Stefani, Mike Amoto and Cloud Rivas. Trachtenburg wrote the music of course, performed here by Charles Mansfield, Jake Strauss, and Henry Buchanan Vaughn.

It’s all happening:

7pm on 3/28, 3/29 and 3/30

At the Brick Theater, 579 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn

20 bucks admission
