Bingo is a musical comedy about a group of bingo addicted small-town girls who are more devoted to the game than their husbands or boyfriends. The show debuted on November 28, 2006 and the audience had the privilege of participating in an actual game of bingo during intermissions. The audience can actually win money at this game. The Bingo musical provides a kind of audience and actor participation that is equivalent of Shear Madness. The scripted Bingo musical was made possible by Michael Heitzman, Ilene Reid and David Holcenberg, who have worked from the regional theaters up to Broadway. The show is now using its stint on Broadway to get the country's attention.
This Stage Door debut has an ace in Margot Moreland, one of the leading ladies of numerous shows produced by Shear Madness Production. Moreland plays the dominatrix of a bingo parlor named Vern. Samar Dunn plays Patsy, a very high-strung and suspicious wallflower who brings her numerous charms into bingo games, believing that they will bring her good fortune. Janice Hamilton plays Honey, a sexpot who seduces her latest conquest without even interrupting the Bingo Game.
Miki Edelman on the other hand, plays Bingo Mistress Minnie. Jim Ballard plays the bingo caller and Honey's target or latest conquest. The show is directed by Glenn Casale. Everybody is encouraged to come and enjoy the show aside from the Bingo Game.
