The Battery's Down - Season One

The Battery's Down

The Battery’s Down, an online television series, premiered February 1, 2008 on YouTube featuring a slew of Broadway guest stars. Filmed in a style similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm or The Office, The Battery’s Down chronicles the life of a young actor, Jake Wilson, in New York City. Each twenty-minute, two-part episode premieres at 12:01AM the first of every month and includes fellow performers portraying themselves. It's back in 2009 with an all-new season.

With a theme song composed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Edges, Johnny and the Sprites), every episode is written and directed by Wilson and features a new song by a talented musical theatre writer or team, including David Kirshenbaum (Vanities, Party Come Here), Josh Salzman and Ryan Cunningham (I Love You Because), and Ryan Scott Oliver and Kirsten A. Guenther (Alive at Ten). Cortney Wolfson (Les Miserables), Ryan Watkinson (Xanadu, Movin’ Out), Dani Spieler, Nina Sturtz, and Adam Wachter join Pasek, Paul, and Wilson as series regulars.
