A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet
Two nobodies dream of writing one hit song for everybody, but their day job composing jingles for commercials isn’t the big break they hoped for. That is, until they’re plucked from obscurity by a world-famous pop star named Regina Comet (if destiny had a child, it would be her) and she wants them to create an anthem for her supernova pipes…and her new perfume. They’re so close to the big-time that they can smell it, but following your passion doesn’t always lead where you expect. Making a hit song can be messy.
Book, Music, and Lyrics Ben Fankhauser is an Actor, Writer, and Educator from Cleveland, Ohio, and the co-creator/star of Off-Broadway’s A Commercial Jingle For Regina Comet. On Broadway, he originated the role...
"…a comical new work filled with heart and tunes that will be stuck in your head for days to come."
