New York (7/23/10) – It was announced today that legendary Village Voice columnist Michael Musto will serve as guest judge at the Puppetry of the Penis open casting call, alongside the show’s current stars Rich Binning and Gavin Stewart.

The open casting call will be held on Tuesday, July 27 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Green Room Theater at 45 Bleeker (45 Bleeker Street, NYC).

The new Off-Broadway production of Puppetry of the Penis began performances Tuesday, July 13th at The Green Room Theater at 45 Bleeker. The 8-week limited engagement features top genital artists Rich Binning and Gavin Stewart — both plucked from obscurity at the 2009 New York City open casting call.
Literally stretching the human body to its absolute limit, genital artists Rich Binning and Gavin Stewart will present over forty astonishing, now-iconic penis installations including the Pelican, The Windsurfer, The Eiffel Tower, Loch Ness Monster, and their mind-boggling, signature installation: the Hamburger. A handful of breathtaking new installations, including Yoda, Sombrero, and E.T., will be performed for the first time on a New York stage.
Created by Simon Morley and David Friend in 1996, Puppetry of the Penis introduced the world to the ancient Australian art of genital origami. It has been experienced by over 1 million people (including the likes of Hugh Grant, Naomi Campbell, Posh Spice, Christina Aguilera, Nicole Richie, Bono and Elton John) in over 14 countries (including the U.S., Great Britain, Australia, Holland, Germany, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Belgium, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal). It has been translated into three languages, had a “how to” book published, been featured on HBO’s “Real Sex” since 2002, and had DVD releases throughout the world.
The performance schedule for Puppetry of the Penis is Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 PM.
Tickets are $49.50 (regular seats) and $79.50 (premium seats) and are now on sale via Telecharge.com/(212) 239-6200 or at the Box Office at 45 Bleecker Street (Hours: Monday: Noon – 5pm – 8pm / Tuesday – Friday: 12:30pm – curtain / Saturday – Sunday: 11:30am – curtain).
