In the world of The Last Smoker in America, laws have pushed smokers to the brink of civilized society—way past the outside edges of office buildings, past bars and bowling alleys, going so far as to inspect citizens' homes for tobacco. In this exaggerated, comically extreme world, suburban mom Pam—played by Farah Alvin—clings to her cigarettes with her every last rebellious breath. “This [musical] is really about people trying to cope with their own inadequacies,” Alvin said in a press video. While trying to sneak smokes under the nose of Big Brother and her prying, self-righteous neighbor Phyllis, Pam's also trying to deal with her husband, Ernie, and her son, Jimmy, both of whom wallow in their generation’s own rock-star fantasy. Ernie wails on the guitar in the basement as if he were in Aerosmith, whereas Jimmy spits rhymes and ignores socially acceptable waistline levels as if he were a hip-hop icon.

The sardonic lens of Tony-nominated Bill Russell’s book and lyrics takes aim at all sorts: smokers, nonsmokers, cheetahs, and American culture itself. To add to the mix, Drama Desk–nominee Peter Melnick lobs a pop-rock score filled with catchy, risqué numbers such as “If It Feels This Good” and “I Wanna Call You —” to get audiences dancing.
