  • (1888PressRelease) March 10, 2011 - "THANK YOU…NEXT", a new web series created by Ben Gettinger and Raymond J. Lee, is proud to announce that it is among 30 new web series accepted into the Second Annual Los Angeles Web Series Festival, held in Los Angeles at Stage 52 between March 25 - 27, 2011. The web series has just launched a new trailer for the series, which can be viewed through their website at

    "THANK YOU…NEXT" is a mockumentary web series that follows a disconcerting creative team as they attempt to cast a musical version of the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry. Inappropriate, and genre bending in it's style, "THANK YOU…NEXT" gives twisted insight into what is means to be involved in the process of casting a Broadway bound Musical. Filled with satirically dry humor and at times uncomfortably raw improvisation, "THANK YOU…NEXT" lampoons musical theater and in it's own way attempts to reclaim the integrity lost in the commercially conscious art form.

    The series stars Broadway's Isaac Calpito (West Side Story), Lori Hammel (Mamma Mia!, Forbidden Broadway), Bryan Scott Johnson (Mamma Mia!), and Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys). Featured in the series is a myriad of Broadway talent including Donna Vivino (Wicked, Fame Becomes Me), Courtney Reed (In The Heights), Alysha Umphress (American Idiot), Marla Mindelle (South Pacific), Ven Daniel (Legally Blonde), Tracy McDowell (Rent), Nataysha Ann, Charl Brown (Sister Act), Felicity Claire (Mamma Mia!), Sara Dobbs (West Side Story), Corey Greenan (Mamma Mia!), Andy Kelso (Mamma Mia!), Veronica J. Kuehn (Xanadu), Eric William Morris (Coram Boy, Mamma Mia!), Margo Seibert, Jessica Stewart, Brandon Sturiale, and Leah Zepel (Mamma Mia!).

    With three episodes currently online, the series is garnering attention from industry people and fans alike. Nominated for the Indie Intertube Audience Choice Award, the series was named one of "2010's Grooviest Web Series" by Deep Dish Blog, with Daniel Reichard and Isaac Calpito both receiving accolades for their respective characters.
