Kritzerland presents the season two premiere of OUTSIDE THE BOX, created by Bruce Kimmel Big happy pants! Outside The Box, the musical comedy web series, is back for its second season of six brand new episodes. Outside The Box is about a very outré musical theatre and each episode features an entirely new cast, save for one recurring character, the director of the group, Stephen Findle. Each episode features between one and three musical numbers. The first episode of season two will premiere on Sunday, November 11 on YouTube (the YouTube channel is www.youtube.com/outsidetheboxseries), with new episodes every two weeks.
Season two's episodes feature Hal Linden (The Rothschilds, Barney Miller), Euan Morton (Tony nominee for Taboo; Sondheim on Sondheim), Adrian Zmed (Grease; Grease 2; Blood Brothers), John Sloman (Mad Men), Jenna Rosen, Jane Noseworthy, Angel Reda, Sharon McNight, Sami Staitman, Lisa Livesay, and more.
Written and directed by Bruce Kimmel, each episode features songs by Kimmel – the Outside The Box theme is by Grant Geissman, composer of Two-And-A-Half Men and Mike and Molly. Kimmel wrote and directed the cult comedy classic film, The First Nudie Musical, and is a long-time Grammy-nominated record producer, having produced over 180 albums, including cast albums (The King and I, Hello, Dolly, Bells Are Ringing, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, etc.), concept albums (Lost In Boston, Unsung Musicals), singers (including Petula Clark, Helen Reddy, Liz Callaway, Laurie Beechman, Judy Kuhn, Judy Kaye, Rebecca Luker, Brent Barrett, Jason Graae, Michelle Nicastro, Christiane Noll, and many others), as well as a historic series of jazz cover versions of Sondheim shows with The Trotter Trio.
