Upright Citizens Brigade will present The 2017 Tony Awardz: A Parody of Musical Proportions Dec. 17 at 9:30 PM at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.

The cast will include Stephanie Streisand, Michael Hartney, Richard “Big Rich” Armstead, Adam Bozarth, Caroline Cotter, Matthew Frazier and Douglas Widick.

"See the future of Broadway today!" state press notes. "The 2017 Tony Awardz parodies everything about today's Broadway trends. The nominated musicals in 2017 have all the clichés and trends you love and love to hate! What musical will win? Will it be the Jukebox musical, the new musical based on a historical figure, the musical based on a movie, or the musical that rebels against all musicals?"

The creative team also includes choreographer Meagan Robar, lighting and sound designer Alex Adan, video segments director Matthew Braunsdorf and graphics designer Adam Bozarth. John Robert Wilson is the associate producer.

Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre is located at 307 West 26th Street. Tickets are $5. Visit NewYork.UCBTheatre.com.
