SPIES ARE FOREVER:
A NEW COMEDY MUSICAL
March 11-April 3, 2016
NoHo Arts Center

Book by The Tin Can Brothers
Music & Lyrics by TalkFine
In the full-length new musical SPIES ARE FOREVER, Agent Curt Mega finds himself thrust into the shadows of Cold War politics as he works to foil a plot to rebuild the Nazi empire. Along the way, Agent Mega must tango with a Russian femme fatale, waltz around a black market arms dealer, and samba through a horde of outrageous characters. With a license to kill and the voice of an angel, Mega must stay alive, complete the mission, and prove to his enemies that the deadliest weapon of all is a little song and dance.
Album recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Mark Caspary and Matt Glenn
This project was made possible by the 1,147 agents who backed the project on Kickstarter.
