Filmmaker Ed DuRante, whom long time readers of this site would be familiar with (6 Things I Never Told You, Jake Gets Paid) has been furtively working on a musical adaptation of Anthony Burgess' 1962 dystopian masterwork A Clockwork Orange, the basis of revered auteur Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film of the same title, starring Malcolm McDowell.

The stage musical is scheduled to open this fall at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Off-Westend in London, which is essentially the equivalent of Off-Broadway here in the USA.

Ed notified me that he's currently holding auditions for the show, and would like that particular piece of news to spread as widely as possible, hence this post.

So, if you're an actor, preferably based in the UK, or you know an actor that fits the criteria as listed below, be sure to contact Ed via the email address given, with the requested materials.

Here ya go:

A Clockwork Orange

A new adaptation with words by Ed DuRante and music by Fred Carl.

Opens in September at the Theatre Royal Stratford East Auditions are being held now!

UK based actors should send resumes and headshots to:


- Black

- Appears to be in his early 20s or younger

- Ferociously intelligent

- Charismatic, confident and aggressive

- Must sing and rap


- Black

- mid 20s- early 30s

- Beautiful, Smart, Sexy and Aggressive.

- Must sing and rap. We're seeking an Erykah Badu or Marsha Ambrosious type.
