The Last Smoker in America is a raucous, irreverent and unfiltered musical comedy, with book and lyrics by two-time Tony Award nominee Bill Russell (Side Show) and music by Drama Desk nominee Peter Melnick (Adrift in Macao). Enter an America where the government is in your kitchen, sniffing for outlawed cigarettes! The extreme anti-smoking laws test the sanity of one suburban family. Pam is having an impossible time trying to quit. Her husband Ernie retreats to the basement to relive the rock star dreams of his youth, while their teenage son Jimmy only turns away from his videogames to explore his gangster rapper persona. Adding to the dysfunctional dynamic is anti-smoking fanatic Phyllis, the neighbor who can’t keep her nose out of everyone else’s business. This original and hilarious new musical will leave you craving for more!

The Last Smoker in America premiered Off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre in 2012, directed by Andy Sandberg (Straight, Application Pending).  Now the original cast and creative team unite for a one-night-only concert presentation of the show’s score, celebrating their Original Cast Album on Yellow Sound Label.
