Casting has begun for the latest production of playwright, Jeffrey E. Milstein and his prison expose: Fort Dicks – the Musical. Based a true story, Mr. Milstein, a prolific author both in NYC and regionally, tells the story of a low-level prison in a famed military installation – and then set it to music! The dark social commentary is played like a Marx Brothers movie complete with sight-gags and prat falls. And just like any old movie musical – Marx Brothers notwithstanding – it has a cast of thousands.

“I draw inspiration and patterns in my work from the comedic geniuses of Mel BrooksLarry David, & Carl Reiner. Its their kind of ‘laugh till you think’ philosophy that I put into my work,” says the ambitious, producer/director/playwright.

Fort Dicks opens in November at the American Theatre of Actors 314 W 54th St, New York.
