And maybe you can eat some beans or throw away some tea or whatever it is they do there. We don’t get out much.

Rockefeller Centaur @ UCB



Wrestling Team’s stage musical - Rockefeller Centaur - is going up at the UCB Theater as part of their SPANK block on May 19th! If this performance is a success, we will have the opportunity to perform a run of shows at the UCB. So if you like Wrestling Team, please come out and support us!

Rockefeller Centaur is a musical about corporate greed, union solidarity and magical creatures.

When the communications giant Xrntivy International hired sketch duo Wrestling Team (Mark Bisi, Andy Beckerman) to create a musical around their mascot, The Rockefeller Centaur, the two leaped at the chance to get paid to create art. But when Xrntivy stiffed them on their fee, they re-wrote the show to reveal all of Xrntivy International’s dark secrets. Follow Mark and Andy’s characters, Mark and Andy, as they go on a magical quest throughout their office building looking for their paychecks, as they learn the horrible truth about their employers on the way…as well as a couple life lessons!

And there’s a centaur!

Book, music and lyrics by Wrestling Team
Directed by Matt Fisher
Starring Andy Beckerman, Mark Bisi, Dan Chamberlain, and Will Cooper

On September 8th we debuted the first half of our stage musical “Rockefeller Centaur” at Sketch Block, Under St. Marks’ great monthly sketch show. The musical revolves around two office drones who uncover a mystical conspiracy at the massive corporation that employs them. Spoiler alert: It turns out that every character is an asshole. It was super fun. We will be returning to Sketch Block on December 8th to perform the full musical, but until then here’s a little appetizer.

Rockefeller Centaur

In show’s business, you have to be prepared for constant rejection. When I pitched my latest passion project (“Rockefeller Centaur”) to myself, I immediately passed on it. I felt that it wouldn’t resonate with first chair cellists aged 49 to 36. I wasn’t discouraged, however. I decided to take my notes and try to address them while maintaining my own creative integrity. After bringing myself in to punch up the script, I was eventually able to reach a compromise with myself on the story beats and overall arc, and I, I and I were all quite pleased with I’s direction. I just goes to show me, I can’t make an omelette because I’m allergic to eggs.
