K.I.S.S. THEATRICALS is pleased to announce the East Coast premiere of WAITING FOR JOHNNY DEPP, as part of the RAVE THEATER FESTIVAL. This one-woman musical with book, music and lyric by JANET COLE VALDEZ and DEEDEE O'MALLEY, music by BETTIE ROSS and directed by HOLLY FRIEDMAN revolves around the zany adventures of an actress who risks it all for the role of a lifetime.

WAITING FOR JOHNNY DEPP takes us on a wild ride with New York actress Rita Donatella, in her quest to land the role of a lifetime in a Johnny Depp film. Constantly reinventing herself to be more perfect for the role, she courageously navigates the rough waters of the Big Apple with humor and chutzpah.

Past productions of WAITING FOR JOHNNY DEPP at TUTS Underground in Houston and at the Whitefire Theatre in North Hollywood in 2016 received rave reviews. Stage Raw named it one of the Top Ten Stage Shows in L.A.

RAVE THEATER FESTIVAL will be held this summer from August 9-25, 2019 at the Clemente Solo Velez Cultural Center (107 Suffolk Street) on the Lower East Side. The festival is helmed by Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Ken Davenport, who will serve as artistic director.

For its inaugural year, Rave Theater Festival has selected a diverse roster of 20 plays, musicals, family-friendly shows, and cross-disciplinary projects. To learn more about Rave Theater Festival visit

Tickets are $25.00 for regular seats and $35.00 for premium seats (guarantees a seat in the best section of the theater) and can be purchased online at or by calling (866) 811-4111.

Presented by City Parks Foundation, Puss in Boots is the story of two friends - Fergus Mundingle and his sly cat Puss - who are tired of their dull and penniless lifestyle.

The classic children's fairy tale with a twist will debut to audiences today in 2 showings at 10:30 AM and 11:30 AM.

The team behind this production has been hard at work creating unique sets, captivating puppets and enchanting music for the upcoming show. "I am so proud of the team we have put together for the production of Puss in Boots," shares Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater's Artistic Director, Bruce Cannon.
The show will captivate audience members of all ages throughout the Summer before its final performance on September 22nd. A full list of show dates and tickets are available at

From stories of hazy nights to friendships lost and found, our closing night program looks back on old loves, bittersweet endings and builds to a thunderclap crescendo featuring a pair of storm chasers running down one last thrill. The end is nigh. (It might not be apocalyptic, but it will probably be wild and kinda weird.)
