Brooklyn Comedian Debut’s Original “Creed” Jukebox Musical Comedy, CREED: THE MUSICAL to NYC Theater District
Broadway goes “butt-rock” with this live homage to the early 2000s rock band “Creed.”
NEW YORK, NY (November 17, 2022) — Release your inner rock star as comedian actor/writer Jesse Montagna debuts his original jukebox musical comedy CREED:THE MUSICAL at the Producer’s Club Theaters this December.
Featuring the iconic music of the 2000s “butt-rock” band Creed, this NEW original musical comedy brings the Creed classics we all know, but will never admit, to the stages of Off-Off-Broadway. Following the life of Scott Stap (no relation), his world gets turned upside down when he gets convicted and thrown in jail the day his daughter is born. Fueled by his one dream to be a father, Scott schemes a breakout to reunite with his family. Featuring songs like, “Higher,” “With Arms Wide Open,” and “One Last Breath,” this show reimagines Creed classics for the Broadway stage. With this debut performance, we can finally answer the age-old question, “Can you take me higher?” with a Creed belting, “YEEEEAAAH!”
“Hearing these songs gives a nostalgia and pride I never knew I had and never realized I needed.”
“Walking the line between comedy and culty, Creed: the musical stands as both a parody and homage to the era of Scott Stapp and his influential hold in early 2000s rock.”
“I never could have imagined that an entire musical sung in the style of Scott Stapp would be music to my ears.”
