"The Devil's Bitch" Musical Comedy Film, Starring Marla Mindelle and Matthew Risch, Selected for Friar's Club Festival
By Adam Hetrick
"The Devil's Bitch," a new short musical film by Sister Act and Cinderella's Marla Mindelle, will be presented as part of the 2012 Friar's Club Film Festival.
Mindelle, who belted out "The Life I Never Led" in the Broadway premiere of Sister Act, co-created and stars in the new comedy about an aspiring wheelchair-using actress who sells her soul to the devil. Jonathan Parks-Ramage and Mindelle co-wrote and executive-produced the film.
It features music by up-and-coming composer Will Van Dyke, who is featured in the first installment of Playbill.com's "Contemporary Songwriters You Should Know."
Jake Honig directs "The Devil's Bitch," which will be screened Oct. 27 at 3:30 PM. It features choreography by Connor Gallagher and is produced by Katherine Paige Picariello and Kim Lessing.
The cast also features Matthew Risch (Other Desert Cities, Pal Joey), Josh Segarra (Lysistrata Jones), Jeanna De Waal (Carrie, American Idiot), Philip Drennen, Taurean Everett and Jonathan Beard.
Here's how it's described: "'The Devil's Bitch' is about a girl who sells her soul to the Devil for fame, fortune and bigger boobs. In return, she must commit Satanic deeds – musically. It's dark, it's campy, and it features some of your favorite Broadway stars singing about pot smoking and murder. Think of it as the 'anti-'Glee.'"
