The Legend of D.C. Colorado follows the adventures of Clive and Owen, two corn-chucking, illiterate, bastard brothers. When they come home to find their mother murdered, they set out on a legendary journey to avenge her demise. With a hand-written note as their only clue, the brothers traverse The Wild West in search of a single person with the ability to read. Witches, bandits and talking horses are not all they’ll hazard in the west, for the true danger lies within. In this western musical comedy, boys WILL become men, and men WILL have daddy issues.
The play’s staged reading premiered Off-Broadway at Here Arts Center in New York City to an enthusiastic audience response in 2019.
The musical is written and produced by a talented duo that also stars in the lead roles; Constantine Malahias (Clive) and Christopher Merlino (Owen). The childhood friends were living in NYC at the time and decided to develop the piece into an entire musical. One pandemic and a move to the West Coast later, the writing team is excited to debut this hilarious production.
Both actors have notable credits on stage, film, and television. Malahias recently starred in the independent comedy TANKHOUSE. Merlino can be seen in the upcoming Lifetime movie, THE FAMILY. This comedy features a rousing musical score composed and directed by Felix Birdie, an NYC-based actor/singer/ composer. Birdie has starred in several theater and film productions, including Green, which went on to win the Short Film Grand Jury prize at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. The professional cast and crew are helmed by director Alessandra Mesa. Mesa is a screenwriter and actor. Her latest project SUPERIOR, in which she played the lead and co-wrote, participated in the IFP Filmmakers Lab 2020 and had its world premiere in Dramatic Competition at Sundance Film Festival 2021.
